To date, Netflix has not yet released the release date for the new episodes of the series. According to the synopsis, the wizard Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) will take Cirilla to his childhood home in Kaer Morhen. While kings, elves, humans and demons fight for supremacy, Geralt takes on the mission to protect Cirilla at any cost – even if his greatest threat is the power within himself.
