It was rumored that Henry Cavill will make an appearance in the SDCC to either announce his cameo in the upcoming Black Adam starring Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson or to discuss any upcoming Man of Steel movie but neither of that happened and the fans were left in dismay and disappointment.

Now it is believed that he was slated to appear but didn’t as a result of his ill health but it is also to be remembered that for a man like Henry Cavill with such fitness and health to be affected much by COVID so it can be expected that he will soon recover and the filming will resume soon.

Season 3 of the Netflix series will be based on the Time of Contempt which is the second book in Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher novel series as confirmed by the showrunner Lauren Hissrich. Netflix describes the plot summary of Witcher Season 3 as:

“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. Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to discover more about the girl’s untapped powers; instead, they discover they’ve landed in a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and treachery. They must fight back, put everything on the line – or risk losing each other forever.”

It can be already perceived that the upcoming season will answer several questions left from the past seasons as well as follow the Geralt of Rivia on his journey just after when we left him off at the end of the second season but it is also a matter of concern that the show will take a considerable time to make its way to the streaming platform so we have to wait a bit longer for season 3 to premiere.

All the seasons of The Witcher can be exclusively streamed on Netflix
