The Witcher Season 3 is kind of renewed and there are rumors that Dave Bautista will be joining the show. While the second season of The Witcher was delayed a bit due to the COVID-19 pandemic, things are getting back on track and filming has resumed.
The plans for “The Witcher” Season 3 are already set in motion and Netflix will announce the renewal soon. Dave Bautista is expected to play the character of Letho who only exists in The Witcher video game series.

Letho of Gulet or the Kingslayer from the School of Viper looks exactly like Bautista and hence there are fan casts for the character. However, it should be noted that Letho is a video game only character who doesn’t exist in Andrzej Sapkowski’s books. Although, Netflix can surprise fans by introducing Dave Bautista as Letho who helps Geralt in the search of Wild Hunt.

No bald cap this year. Just pounds of 2 types of medical tape and some glue…. Removal is a joy. Jacqui and Ailbhe here, though, have the deft touch of angels. Jacqui more so an Angel of Vengeance, but that's all part of her charm. Oh and for those who may be worrying. All of us are Covid cleared and bubbled 👍🏻. We get tested twice a week up here in Kaer Morhen! #Witcher2 #CasuallyOpenRobe #CowboyBeard @RathoreJacqui @AilbheLemass
Cavill also mentioned Kaer Morhen, which will be an important place in the second season. The Witchers are trained at Kaer Morhen by Vesemir and it is very integral to the story. The Witcher Season 2 release date is set as 2021 with all episodes streaming on Netflix.
