With two successful seasons under their belt, The Witcher is getting ready to release season 3. Everyone wants to know when they can watch the third season of the Witcher? Keep reading to find out!
When Will the Third Season of The Watcher Arrive on Netflix?
Henry Cavill has played the Witcher as well as anyone could have and fans are eager to see him in yet another season. Season three will arrive on Netflix in the summer of 2023. Some issues slowed down production and pushed back the release date. The pandemic shut down production for some time and an injury to Cavill stopped filming for a time being.
The Andrzej Sapkowski inspired show from the books of the same name hasn’t followed the books exactly. Season two diverged and created a plot that didn’t exist in the books. Many fans were surprised and did not like the change of direction as well as ruining an integral character from the book. Season three should follow the plot from the books again but don’t be surprised if there are any more twists.
The Witcher Has Been Very Successful for Netflix
The Witcher has been a huge success for Netflix since it first aired. It is one of the top ten shows watched all time on Netflix. Season two alone has been streamed over 460 million hours by viewers. Those numbers put it above the best shows on Hulu, Apple TV+ and Amazon Prime Video. Expect the third season to do even better as the hype for the show keeps growing.
Unlike other Streaming services, Netflix will drop all of the episodes of the show at once. That means you can binge-watch all eight episodes in one go. Do make sure to take breaks in between.
