The third season of Netflix's hit series ‘The Witcher’ has officially wrapped up filming today (September 9) in London, UK. The filming will take place in various locations in the UK starting April 4th this year.
The previous season's production was badly hit by the pandemic and this season also suffered a minor setback when Henry Cavill tested positive for Covid at the end of July. However, filming continued without the lead actor and the production wasn't impacted much overall.
The production wrap was confirmed by director Bola Ogun, who shared the news via her Insta story minutes after the official wrap. Season 3 episodes are directed by Stephen Surjik, Gandja Monteiro, Loni Peristere, and Bola Ogun. The post-production on Season 3 will commence soon, and it is likely to take more than six months. We can expect The Witcher Season 3 to release in Summer 2023.

Returning cast for the upcoming season includes Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, Bart Edwards, Mimî M. Khayisa, Royce Pierreson, Wilson Mbomio, and Mecia Simson.
