The trailer for the second volume of The Witcher’s third season has been released, with Henry Cavill’s exit as Geralt teased in the process.
The trailer covers the final three episodes of the eight-part third season, which are set to be released on Netflix on July 27.
The logline for the trailer reads: “Never lost, always found”, with the episodes being Cavill’s last in the series before he is replaced by Liam Hemsworth. The action-packed trailer showcases Geralt in a combative mood as he seeks to protect Ciri, with a vast array of enemies heading his way.
Ahead of the season’s conclusion, Jaskier actor Joey Batey sat down exclusively with Digital Spy to discuss the upcoming developments, with the star teasing that the finale would be “brave.”
“It’s quite brave in terms of its narrative beats [and] in the way in which it’s structured,” he said. “For so many seasons, we’ve had it leading up to a big fight scene, and big revelations. This season, we get to see beyond some of those big conflicts and delve into the real human side of these characters, and see what happens when things perhaps don’t go to plan.
“It does have all of those monsters – again, [stuntman] Wolfgang Stegemann has worked so hard on creating incredible choreography. I think this season is a bit more mature – we get to settle and sit with these characters in very vulnerable spaces. I think that is my favourite aspect of the show, and, in particular, part two,” he continued, before hinting at what is to come for his character.
“He’s got a couple of decisions to make. I don’t think he does. He’s presented with choices, and it’s not a choice to him. He knows his past, and he knows who his real family is.”
