When you’re dealing with legions of monsters, you gotta work fast.
And, apparently, that’s just what the writers of the Netflix hit horror/fantasy series The Witcher are doing. With Season 2 set to debut this Friday, Dec. 17, one of the show’s stars said she has already seen the scripts for the third season, which was confirmed back in September.
Freya Allan–who plays Princess Ciri on the popular show–said in a recent interview that she has read some of the scripts, and she likes what she has seen. Allan, as reported by screenrant.com, said, “I’ve actually seen some scripts, you know. Just putting it out there.”
Allan said she isn’t sure when production on Season 3 will start, but added, “It will not be too long away. It’s very exciting. I think it’s going to be a great season.”
While fans are digesting that tasty nugget, they only have a few days left until Season 2 kicks off. The upcoming eight-episode season–also starring Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia and Anya Chalotra as Yennefer–follows Geralt as he escorts Ciri to his childhood home, Kaer Morhen. There, Geralt must protect the girl “from the mysterious power she possesses inside.”
The series–led by creator and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich–is based on the book of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski. The premiere episode of Season 2 reportedly will draw inspiration from Sapkowski’s short story A Grain of Truth and will introduce the character of Nivellen, played by Kristofer Hivju.
