We have the most recent information about The Witcher’s Netflix release from Redanian Intelligence. The most recent information about The Witcher season 3, The Witcher: Blood Origin, and everything else is provided here. The eagerly awaited third season of The Witcher on Netflix was finally finished on September 9, capping a journey that had started back in March. We have a lot of news to cover as we wait for the editors, musicians, and visual effects artists to conclude their work and present the finished film to Netflix.
This month’s roundup includes a brief preview of next week’s TUDUM event, an exciting rumour concerning seasons four and five, new cast members and confirmation of their roles, behind-the-scenes photos of a Nilfgaardian set, and more.
When can we anticipate The Witcher Season 3 to be released?
The Witcher’s cast and crew completed Season 3 production on September 9, passing the torch to editors, VFX artists, and Netflix’s marketing team as the season enters the post-production process. The third season’s production lasted about five months and took the cast and crew to dozens of locales in six different countries, ranging from the scorching Sahara Desert in Morocco to the cold lakes of Northern Italy to the verdant slopes of Wales.
The third season of “Game of Thrones” has finished filming, and post-production is already underway. Fans are anxious to see when we can see it. Despite the fact that Netflix hasn’t even offered a release window or a specific date, we can make an informed judgement based on the production cycles of previous seasons.
Before its release in December 2019, the first season needed six months of post-production, and the second season needed seven months. In light of this, we may predict that Season 3’s post-production will take between six and eight months. The programme would then be prepared for release between March and May of 2023, though this does not imply that it will be released right away.
Netflix took a long time after post-production on The Witcher’s first and second seasons before publishing the episodes on Netflix. Season one was released a month after post-production ended, and season two was held back by Netflix for two months.
In both cases, Netflix waited until December to release the episodes, just in time for Christmas, when people will be at home with their families and anxious to binge a new show. If Netflix continues this trend and releases season three in December 2023, they will have to keep the new episodes for at least seven months longer than they did in the first two seasons. Because of this, we don’t think Netflix will continue to release the third season in December. We place our bets on a summer 2023 release since that is the release that is most plausible.
The Witcher: Blood Origin has been reshot and edited to include more Jaskier sequences
We can go on to an update on the impending live action limited series spinoff The Witcher: Blood Origin now that we’ve covered all the news regarding The Witcher’s third season. Even before the Conjunction of the Spheres, the occurrence that brought the realms of elves, mankind, and monsters together into one Continent, this prequel series takes place hundreds of years before the main programme. Six episodes of Blood Origin, each featuring a brief introduction from The Witcher’s Jaskier, were originally planned to focus on the elf warriors that inhabited the Continent before humanity arrived. According to what we hear, Netflix chose to revamp the show since they weren’t thrilled with the outcome.
To begin, the number of episodes was reduced from six to four. We’re not sure if this means we’ll be getting longer episodes or that one-third of the original product will be removed outright, although the latter seems more plausible. Netflix has also held massive reshoots for the show, involving the majority of the principal cast members, in order to reweave these four episodes into a cohesive tale.
We first heard the same information from one of our readers at Redanian Intelligence, who chose to remain anonymous, before verifying it with other sources. According to them, Netflix took advantage of the reshoots to expand Jaskier’s role, with extra Jaskier sequences being filmed. We initially believed this to be a rumour, but now that the other details have been verified, it is likely that Jaskier’s expanded role is also accurate.
