Yes, there will be a Witcher Season 3. Rumors of the series being cancelled are false. With many additions to the already exciting world, and a cliffhanger ending, it's only natural to wonder about more content. Here's everything we know so far:

Based on a short story and book series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher made some noise when it was first released in late 2019. Due to Covid complications, the second season had was pushed back, landing on Netflix a full two years later.

Season 1 was mostly based on Sapkowski's short story collections, The Last Wish, and Sword of Destiny. Season 2 adapted a story from The Last Wish, titled "Grain of Truth." It also focused on the first full-length novel in the Witcher universe, Blood of Elves, and it started adapting the next novel in the series, titled Time of Contempt. Beyond that, The Witcher saga includes three more novels and a standalone. It goes without saying that there's plenty of material for a Season 3 and beyond.

But will a Season 3 happen? While we don't have an official release date for it yet, we're confident that the team is keen on bringing The Witcher Season 3 to our screens. Already, Blood Origin, a spin-off, has been announced. Soon after the release of Season 2, Netflix confirmed that Blood Origin will air in 2022. Even though they didn't give a precise release date, we know we can expect more content relatively soon.

Of course, at this point, fans are more worried about seeing the story progress. While we can't give a definitive update as of 2022, we assume that, following the cliffhanger about Ciri's father, the team working on The Witcher is definitely planning a second season. If Blood Origin comes out in 2022, we would suspect that, covid allowing, Season three would come around 2023. We'll update you with more information once we have a formal announcement.
