After the pandemic pushed back the filming and release of The Witcher Season 2, which landed on Netflix almost two years after the end of the first season,the Lauren S. Hissrich-led series wasted no time in getting production started on Season 3. Last April, a first set photo was shared on Instagram, along with the official synopsis.
Before Enola Holmes 2
Monarchs, mages, and creatures on the Continent will do anything to capture Ciri. Geralt will take care of hiding it, determined to protect his newly reunited family from those who threaten to destroy it. Charged with Ciri's magical training, Yennefer will lead them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to learn more about the young woman's yet untapped powers.
