The Witcher Season 3 Trailer Prepares Us for Henry Cavill’s Last Hurrah
Netflix has released The Witcher Season 3 trailer which prepares us to experience Henry Cavill‘s last hurrah as Geralt of Rivia. Since his picture-perfect portrayal of the character popularized by the series of video games, Cavill will see his run as the beloved character ends after this season.
The trailer showcased Geralt, Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), and Ciri (Freya Allen) attempting to live peacefully as a family but the danger is ever so present and a quiet life is never in the cards for our Witcher.
The official synopsis for The Witcher Season 3 reads:
As monarchs, mages, and beasts of the Continent compete to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri into hiding, determined to protect his newly-reunited family against those who threaten to destroy it. Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where they hope to uncover 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.
As the trailer states, Ciri is at the heart of it all and Geralt makes it clear he will not abandon her. This leads to plenty of the iconic action we have consistently been treated to throughout the prior seasons and the cast’s chemistry only grows stronger as each season passes. Even if this is a farewell to Cavill’s depiction of Geralt, it looks to be a grand one and we look forward to his last hunt as Geralt of Rivia and the genuinely hilarious scenes shared with Jaskier (Joey Batey).
The Witcher Season 3 Volume 1 will premiere exclusively on Netflix on June 29, 2023, with Volume 2 following on July 27, 2023.
