We asked creator Lauren Schmidt Hissrich if Netflix had plans to release the season in two parts.
During an different interview with Collider’s very own Steve Weintraub for The Witcher: Blood Origin, The Witcher author Lauren Schmidt Hissrich discussed the possibility of splitting the imminent season into a couple of components, as VFX challenges retain to motive delays in Hollywood. Schmidt Hissrich also anticipates at least seven extra months of publish-production before Season three’s release, which might weigh in prefer of splitting the season.
Based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s series of books of the same call, Netflix’s The Witcher tells the story of Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), a monster hunter who gets entangled in complicated political disputes while wandering a completely unique myth international. The Witcher fast became one among Netflix’s maximum a success authentic productions upon its release in 2019. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and the heavy CGI put up-manufacturing work the collection demanded, we most effective got Season 2 in December 2021.
During the interview with Schmidt Hissrich and Declan De Barra, co-creators of The Witcher: Blood Origin, Weintraub asked while the next season can be available and if Netflix might launch the episodes in two parts. As Schmidt Hissrich stated in our extended interview:
“We haven’t discussed that [splitting the season] yet, but at this point I think what we see happening across all sort of streamers, I wouldn’t rule it out. I do think that, obviously, we don’t put anything out that we’re not incredibly proud of. So that dictates our entire launch date. And I think it’ll be interesting. Again, we have a way still a very long time, eight-ish months or so until Witcher Season 3 comes out. So God willing, we get it all out at the same time. But who knows, we’ll see what happens.”
This would not be the primary time Netflix has opted to split their seasons for sensible concerns. While Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities released episodes in pairs as part of a thematic build-up, the Duffer Brothers opted to cut up Stranger Things Season four into components, in element to permit the VFX team time to finish work at the final episodes.
When Will We Get More Witcher on Netflix?

And just closing week, we got the most excellent of The Witcher: Blood Origin, a derivative miniseries that takes area 1200 years earlier than the original collection.
Those by-product productions assist enlarge the wealthy universe of The Witcher. Still, we’re thrilled to see what Season 3 of the principle collection will convey for fans. Even extra, due to the fact Season 3 marks the remaining look of Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, a part that Liam Hemsworth will play from Season four forward. Unfortunately, we don’t have a release date for Season 3 of The Witcher, past the expertise that it’ll top-quality in Summer 2023.
