The Witcher, the fantasy drama series based on the same-named book series by author Andrzej Sapkowski, returns to Netflix for season three on June 29. The show stars Henry Cavill as a monster hunter known as ‘The Witcher.’ Season ended in December 2021 so it’s been a long wait for fans of this cult fave. And they will want to stream in because this is expected to be Cavill’s last season.
Below is today’s Netflix press release on season three and a show teaser. Enjoy.
