The Witcher Season 3 Trailer Response Hints Season 4 Is Impossible

The response to The Witcher season 3 trailer highlights the biggest problem season 4 is facing, putting the series’ future at risk.

The first teaser for The Witcher season 3 has been released, but the response to it might not be good news for the already announced season 4. The universe of The Witcher continues expanding over at Netflix, and after the failure of the prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin, this universe is going back to its main series with its highly-awaited third season. The Witcher season 3 will introduce new and exciting characters and will hopefully answer the biggest questions left by season 2, but most importantly, it will be Henry Cavill’s final season as Geralt of Rivia, the title witcher.

After coming across a bunch of obstacles, The Witcher season 2 finally brought together Geralt, Ciri (Freya Allan), and Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) in its final episode, but as Ciri is now being hunted by half the Continent, they will have to stick together in season 3 in order to be safe. In addition to that, The Witcher season 2 revealed that The White Flame is Ciri’s supposedly dead father, so there’s a lot season 3 and season 4 have to cover, but after the reaction to the trailer, this season might be The Witcher’s last.

The Witcher Season 3’s Trailer Response Highlights A Season 4 Problem

The first trailer for The Witcher season 3 doesn’t reveal much in terms of its plot but it does give the audience a good taste of the action and drama they can expect this season, as well as a look at old and new characters, most notably the Wild Hunt. The big reveals made at the end of The Witcher season 2 add to the anticipation for season 3, but also the fact that this will be the last time the audience will see Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, and that could end up dictating the future of the series. The most common reactions to the trailer were all about season 3 being Cavill’s last, with many viewers stating they will stop watching the series when Cavill leaves, even though a fourth season is already confirmed and Cavill’s replacement has already been announced.

Liam Hemsworth has been cast as the new Geralt of Rivia, and reactions to this were mostly negative. The feeling continued now that the trailer for The Witcher season 3 is out, which isn’t good news for season 4 as the series is risking a big drop in popularity. In addition to Cavill leaving after season 3, season 2 was heavily criticized for making too many changes to the source material and for how certain storylines were handled, particularly that of Yennefer, so The Witcher doesn’t have the same popularity and success as it did with its first season, and Cavill’s departure and the response to season 3’s trailer are only bringing more trouble for season 4.

Why The Witcher Season 3 Might Be The Show’s Final Season

Unfortunately, The Witcher season 4 already has too many things against it, which could lead to season 3 being the series’ last. As mentioned above, the many changes to the source material in season 2 drew a lot of criticism, the prequel series Blood Origin failed to expand this universe in an exciting way, leaving even more questions, and Cavill’s departure after season 3 has led to a lack of interest in season 4, no matter what season 3 sets up. It wouldn’t be surprising, then, if Netflix decides to cancel season 4 and The Witcher ends with season 3, so the series would have started and ended with Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, thus not having to deal with a drop in viewership and popularity that would only hurt the legacy of The Witcher.
