The Witcher Season 3, Volume 1: History Repeats Itself | That Shelf

The Witcher, Season 3

It feels like this season will be made or broken by the final three episodes, releasing in late July. That’s not to say that it isn’t good, just that it doesn’t offer anything as new or compelling as the first two seasons did. A proper ending might supply those things. Again, the show is well-made and well-acted, and there’s a lot of care involved from the people who need to care. If nothing else, it’s never not fun to hear Cavill growl his way through Geralt’s dialogue or any of the action scenes. The effects, hair, makeup, and costuming teams also continue to outdo themselves. There is plenty to like in these five episodes, but the real meat of the season is yet to come.


This piece/episode was produced during the 2023 WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Without the labour of the writers and actors currently on strike, the films being discussed here wouldn’t exist.
