The first trailer suggests that Season 3 will take an eerie, horrifying turn. Geralt takes a sip of a drink and his eyes instantly take on a dark, demonic state. He continues in an eerie tone, “Now, for the first time, I understand real fear.”
The official storyline summary for Season 3 of Netflix states, “As monarchs, mages, and beasts of the Continent compete to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri of Cintra into hiding, determined to protect his newly reunited family against those who threaten to destroy it.” “Yennefer, intrigued by Ciri’s magical training, takes them to the safe haven of Aretuza in the hopes of learning more about the girl’s untapped abilities; instead, they find themselves in a battleground of political corruption,
treachery and evil magic. They have to fight back and risk everything if they don’t want to lose each other forever.
With the announcement that he would portray Superman again in a future Warner Bros. movie, Cavill announced his departure from “The Witcher” with news of his return to the role for the first time since 2017’s “Justice League.” James Gunn, the head of DC Studios, has subsequently stated that Cavill won’t be playing Superman once more. Gunn will instead helm “Superman: Legacy,” which will depict “the story of Superman’s journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas.” Information on the cast has not yet been released.

The trailer only gives us fleeting glimpses of each character and doesn’t really explain what’s going on, but it does show Yen, Ciri, and Geralt looking for one another in the dark and feature Geralt speaking about his first experience with genuine fear during an encounter with a monster. Most significantly, it provides a few hints that the Wild Hunt is finally making an appearance, which makes sense given that they were teased at the conclusion of season 2 and in the spinoff series Blood Origin.
