The Withcer season 3 release date: Henry Cavill as Geralt

What happens in The Witcher season 3?

The primary focus of the plot in The Witcher season 3 is on Geralt and Yennefer trying to keep Ciri safe. Across volume 1, they’re being chased across the Continent by an outrageous number of enemies, who all want Ciri for their own personal goals.

The Elves want Ciri because they think she can fulfil a prophecy and see the return of Elven supremacy. The Redanian King wants Ciri to marry him in order to have a claim to the throne of Cintra. The Wild Hunt is riding after Ciri after seeing her in another realm. And that’s not it: Nilfgaard, Rience, and the Brotherhood of Sorcerers all want Ciri too.

That’s enough to keep Geralt and Yennefer’s hands full, and they’re trying to find allies who will help them. Meanwhile, after Ciri’s training at Kaer Morhen, Yennefer is now trying to further Ciri’s grasp of magic which has enormous potential.

Volume 2 focusses on the destruction of Aretuza, and the splintering of the group once again. In The Witcher season 3 ending, Ciri joins the Rats under the alias Falka, while Geralt and Jaskier head to Nilfgaard in an ill-informed quest to find her.
