The Witcher Season 3 Official Trailer Released

With less than a month to go, we got the official trailer for the third season that premiered with the Summer Game Fest. Without any further ado, let’s dive in.

Volume 1 of the third season, premiering on June 29th, will be showing us how Ciri’s power has progressed, and also how the world around them has grown more hostile and dangerous. Ciri will need to be protected, but she’ll also be taking charge of her own destiny, training with both Geralt and Yennefer.

We’ll also get plenty of glimpses of familiar characters and locations, plus some new places as well. The action still seems to be in good form, with quite a few scenes teased in the trailer below.

But the fact that this is Henry Cavill’s final season shows in the trailer. There’s a distinct lack of energy that we’ve come to expect from the trailers, and some of the words ring hollow in the context of reality, such as the chemistry between Geralt and Yennefer, who have been building up this tension of the will-they-or-won’t-they trope, will feel a bit empty when Geralt gets a face swap for any future seasons. The same is true of the budding parental responsibility Geralt has with Ciri, a lot of that nuance will feel lost. Which isn’t to say that it has no chance of being good, but it does bring a different context that will surely be running through everyone’s minds as we all tune in for the new season.

Check out the trailer, and let us know your thoughts:
