The Witcher Season 3 is Apparently Already in the Works at Netflix

The Witcher Season 3 is Apparently Already in the Works at Netflix

The Witcher is clearly set to have a third season, even though Netflix hasn't announced that it is happening just yet.

Neftlix’s The Witcher set the TV world ablaze when it launched last in 2019. So much so, in fact, that the streaming giant almost immediately announced that it had ordered a second season. And while we’ve only today started to see our first images of what the upcoming season of The Witcher will have in store, Netflix seems as though it has already started on working on the series past this slate of episodes as well.

Spotted by Redanian IntelligenceThe Witcher season three has now appeared on the official Writers Guild of America’s database. Just what does this mean, exactly? Well, it basically makes clear that Netflix has already greenlit the show’s third season, even though it hasn’t made such an announcement public yet. For it to appear on this database, it would need to have been made official, which makes the listing viable.

As for the details that are offered up on the third season judging by this listing, well, there’s nothing really to glean. Lauren S. Hissrich is still slated as the executive producer of The Witcher, much as she was and is for the series’ first two seasons. To see her attached to the third season here really isn’t a shock whatsoever.

As for when this season might premiere though, well, 2022 seems the most likely. For those unaware, the second season of The Witcher is still in production right now and isn’t slated to release until later next year. Given the fact that season three seems to have been ordered so far in advance though, it stands to reason that filming on it could begin far sooner when compared to season two.

No matter when season three of The Witcher does arrive though, one thing is for sure: Netflix has absolutely doubled-down on this property. In addition to the three seasons of The Witcher that are now apparently coming, a prequel series called The Witcher: Blood Origin is in the pipeline as well. Best of all, Blood Origin is rumored to be looking to cast Aquaman’s Jason Momoa in the central protagonist role, too.
