The Witcher: Season 3 will (maybe) be released in two parts

A few months before its release, Netflix is ​​reportedly considering streaming The Witcher Season 3 by splitting it into two parts.

As Henry Cavill announced his departure from the show, The Witcher Season 3 presented itself as his heroic (but improvised) swansong. The actor should be replaced by Liam Hemsworth for the sequel to the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, unless the series is canceled by then (you never know with Netflix).

Because apart from the proposals with the British actor, the spin-offs have struggled to convince and the latest shipwreck, the foul The Witcher: The Blood Legacy, testifies to this once again. The solution for the firm at N red – before potentially dropping the license in the event of yet another failure – would perhaps be to consider a two-part broadcast for the comedian's final steps through the Continent.

The question was induced by Collider since this way of delivering new content has become more popular on the streaming service – Better Call Saul, < strong>La Casa de Papel, Lupin and Stranger Things were notably entitled to this method. Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich replied:

“We haven't discussed that [splitting the season] yet, but at this stage […] I wouldn't rule it out. I think obviously we don't put anything on the market that we're not incredibly proud. So that dictates our launch date. And I think that would be interesting. Again, we have plenty of time, about eight months before The Witcher season 3 comes out. God willing, we We'll all come out at the same time. But who knows, we'll see what happens.”

This possibility is all the more plausible as it would allow the series to potentially catch up taken on its post-production, as some rumors suggest. If nothing has been confirmed, the rewrites linked to Cavilll's departure and the presence of greedy and time-consuming VFX (as with Stranger Things) make the hypothesis probable… and after all, this does not wouldn't be the first time (Season 2's digital special effects overload pushed its release back then).

For now, the new adventures ofGeralt of Riviaare vaguely anticipated for summer 2023. In the meantime, aficionados of the universe can laugh or suffer (or both) as they try their hand at the birth of the first Witcher with The Witcher: Legacy of Blood, available from 25 December 2022 on Netflix.
