“As the monarchs, wizards, and monsters of the Continent compete to capture her, Geralt hides Ciri, determined to protect his newly united family against those who threaten to destroy it,” reads the synopsis of Season 3. “Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where they hope to discover more of the woman’s untapped power; instead, they discover that they have landed on the battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and treachery. They must fight, put everything on the line – or risk losing each other forever.

Season 3 marks Cavill’s final season as the titular hunter, as he will be replaced by Hunger Games vet Liam Hemsworth in the fourth installment.
