In a recent interview with The evening paperveteran actor star Dolph Lundgren spoiled his involvement in an upcoming witcher Spin-off after confirming he’s currently in South Africa filming said untitled project for Netflix. The Expendables star’s casting reveal comes ahead of the highly-anticipated main series Season 3 premiere on June 29.
Since The Witcher: Blood Origin premiered last December 2022, Netflix has yet to make any official announcements about another spin-off series to their hit fantasy drama, directed by Henry Cavill. That’s why it remains unclear which project Lundgren got involved in.
What can you expect from season 2 of The Witcher?
“As monarchs, mages and beasts of the continent compete to capture her, Geralt goes into hiding with Ciri, determined to protect his newly united family from those who threaten to destroy them,” reads the Season 3 synopsis. Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads her to the sheltered fortress of Aretuza, where they hope to learn more about the girl’s untapped powers. Instead, they discover they have landed on a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and betrayal. You have to fight back, risk everything – or risk losing each other forever.”
The Witcher is an epic tale of destiny and family that follows lonely monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, powerful sorceress Yennefer and young Cintrian princess Ciri as they learn to navigate an increasingly volatile continent together.
The series is directed by Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Princess Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer von Vengerberg, Joey Batey as Jaskier, and more. Season 3 marks Cavill’s final season as a title chaser, as he is replaced in the fourth installment by Hunger Games veteran Liam Hemsworth.
Based on the stories and novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher is created and produced by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who also serves as showrunner. Sean Daniel and Jason Brown of the Sean Daniel Company are executive producers, along with Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko of Platige Image.
