Netflix has finally confirmed the official release date for The Witcher Season 3, but it’s not what you think.
Fans have been anxious to see this day, especially since Henry Cavill will no longer be a part of the series after the third season ends.
When The Witcher Season 4 comes, Cavill will have been replaced by Liam Hemsworth as the new Geralt of Rivia.
To this day, it remains to be seen as to why Cavill left the Netflix series.
However, previous reports speculate it had to do with prioritizing other projects and having creative differences with the showrunners.
Yesterday, Netflix teased a heroic sendoff to Henry Cavill’s Geralt in a new poster they revealed, seemingly symbolizing having to let go of this version of the lead.
And now, in a recent teaser for Season 3, Netflix wrote on the screen:
The Witcher Season 3 Volume 1 releases on June 29, while The Witcher Season 3 Volume 2 is on July 27! You can check out the official teaser below:
The entire The Witcher Season 3 will contain a total of eight episodes, with Vol. 1 comprising of episodes 1 to 5 and Vol. 2 with episodes 6 to 8.
As for the reason behind the big release date split, showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich previously said: “At this point, I think what we see happening across all of streamers, I wouldn’t rule [split releases] out…”
“I do think that, obviously, we don’t put anything out that we’re not incredibly proud of.” Hissrich added, “So that dictates our entire launch date…”
“Again, we have a way still a very long time… So God willing, we get it all out at the same time. But who knows, we’ll see what happens.” And now we have.
As fans declare The Witcher Season 3 to be the series finale in fear of losing Cavill from his departure, The Witcher Season 4 will be seeing Liam Hemsworth take the role of Geralt soon.
Meanwhile, The Witcher Seasons 1 and 2 are available to stream on Netflix.
