Season 3 of the mothership collection is geared towards the looks of the Wild Hunt, as season 2 ended with Geralt, Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), and Ciri (Freya Allen) stranded within the desolate realm of Aen Elle earlier than they teleport again to Kaer Morhen. We see the Wraiths of Mörhogg, together with Eredin, king of the Wild Hunt, proclaiming his curiosity within the little one with the Elder Blood. “Blood Origin” supplies some context to Eredin previous to his flip, filling in a couple of gaps relating to his present standing as King, however the upcoming season will most certainly grant larger perception into his motivations, and the way Ciri’s destiny is intimately tied to that of the world(s).

While these occasions are a mixture of present storylines and new interpretations, there’s ample house for adapting strands which may not issue into “The Witcher” collection. Hissrich talked concerning the lifespan of the first collection, together with that of potential prequels and spin-offs:

“To me, ‘Lady of the Lake’ is the perfect example of how these stories can continue flourishing and developing even beyond the main saga, which is where obviously ‘Blood Origin’ comes in. But I was asked a lot, are there going to be other sequels and prequels and spinoffs? I think, certainly Sapkowski’s books are kind of limitless in a lot of ways. So I think what is really interesting is to look at the lifespan of the mothership and then also the lifespan of the different types of stories that we can tell. So I could keep going for a while.”

Hissrich additionally clarified that she has a particular finish level in thoughts for the principle Netflix collection, which prompts her to speak about “The Lady of the Lake,” and its connection to Arthurian legends.
