New information has leaked about season 3 of The Witcher, the hit series from Netflix. We had learned the start date of filming a while ago, which means that we should also learn more about the characters and the cast. Redanian Intelligence unearthed audition tapes that reveal thatanother person will join in the hunt for Ciri. It’s even the Professor, a villain whose name should bring back some memories to fans of Andrzej Sapkowski’s books or video games. For the moment, it is not really known how important he will be in the next season.
Ralf Blunden, nicknamed “the Professor”, is an assassin known to be ready to do anything for money. One of his most striking distinguishing marks are his glasses, described in The Time of Contempt so : “in polished crystal, with bluish reflections and a gold frame planted on its hooked nose”. His nickname “Professor” comes from this accessory, but also from his way of speaking in a sustained manner, so much so that sometimes his words have no meaning. It would seem that for this villain, The Witcher will rely more on the role he played in the booksi.e. tracking down Ciri and Yennefer, only to be confronted by Geralt afterwards.
A new enemy joins the hunt for Ciri
In season 2 of The Witcherexit on netflix end of 2021, Geralt (played by Henry Cavill) was finally at the side of Ciri (Freya Allen), her surprise child. They learned to know each other and to tame each other, all that in Kaer Morhen, surrounded by other witchers. We also find Yennefer (played by Anya Chalotra), to say the least changed after the battle of Sodden. Season 2 ends in an atmosphere of war, and the hunt to find Ciri is in full swing. The last episode had surprised the spectators (but not the true fans) by revealing the true identity of the White Flame. We just have to take our troubles patiently to get the rest…
