The second season of Netflix’s The Witcher was released last month to many different opinions from fans, and while it is still one of the top viewed series on the streamer, the work on the next season is long underway. Writing began in July 2021 and was almost complete in December. Now, it is time for the next step.
We can reveal that the pre-production for The Witcher Season 3 will finally begin in the coming weeks, this January. Filming for The Witcher Season 3 is currently planned to begin in early March 2022.
Keep in mind, though, filming dates always change so we’ll see when they truly begin. Just a few weeks ago we heard the plan was to start in February and now it’s March. There’s also the fact that they are in a new studio since they moved from Arborfield Studios to Longcross Studios, so brand new set building will also likely need some time.
When will filming wrap? The original report said that filming would last from February until July 2022. If it’s shifted one month, then the wrap would be now in August 2022. But all that is harder to say because we’re still in a pandemic and countries are having different responses to the new Covid variant. It’s difficult to make any predictions even a few months ahead.
When will Season 3 of The Witcher be released? Assuming all goes well and the production indeed wraps in August, we have still 6-7 months of post-production which means the season would be ready for release approximately in Spring 2023.
The Witcher Season 2 is now streaming on Netflix, while Season 3 is in active development for a 2023 release.
