Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to discover more about the girl’s untapped powers; instead, they discover they’ve landed in a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and treachery. They must fight back, put everything on the line — or risk losing each other forever.”

Inspired by a series of novels written by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher is an 

epic tale of fate and family — the story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified. shares that “season 3 will predominately adapt the events of Andrzej Sapkowski’s novel, Time of Contempt, the second novel in the main Witcher saga.”

Henry Cavill stars as Geralt of Rivia, with Freya Allan as Princess Cirilla of Cintra, and Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg.
