Freya Allan is best known for playing Princess Cirilla of Cintra, or Ciri, in Netflix's The Witcher series. She is expected to return in the show's third season which is already set to premiere on the streaming service sometime in 2023.

So what can we expect for Ciri in The Witcher Season 3? In the latest season finale, Ciri is now the one person that everyone is after on the Continent. The Brotherhood has put a bounty on her as well as Geralt of Rivia. In addition to that, Francesca is convinced that Ciri is the elves' only hope. But the worse of it is that her real father Duny is still very much alive and has returned as Emperor Emhyr.

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes has not yet been given an official release date. The Witcher Season 3 premieres on Netflix in mid-2023.
