The Witcher Season 3 Images Set Up 1 Major Character Death

The Witcher season 3 is currently filming, and while plot details are unknown for now, set photos show an important battle that will lead to the death of one major character. One of the most popular worlds in the fantasy genre is that of The Witcher, created by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The Witcher is a series of novels and short stories that reached worldwide recognition after their adaptation to video games, and after getting a movie and TV series in Poland, it got an English language adaptation thanks to Netflix.,The Witcher debuted on Netflix in December 2019 and quickly became a hit, and it stood out because it followed three characters in different places and points in time, with their paths converging at the end of the season: Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra), and Ciri (Freya Allan). Season 2 opted for a linear narrative and saw Ciri being trained at Kaer Morhen while Geralt did his best to keep her safe from all those looking for her, including Yennefer, though at the end of the season, she was the one who saved Ciri from the Voleth Meir. The princess of Cintra gained new enemies in The Witcher season 2, among those elves and mages, including those closest to Yennefer.,Related: Why Yennefer Lost Her Powers In The Witcher Season 2,The universe of The Witcher is very extensive and rich, and various characters from the books have already been introduced in the series, mostly those closest to the main characters. Some of these characters gained a lot of force in The Witcher season 2, as were Tissaia de Vries (MyAnna Buring), the Rectrix of Aretuza and Yennefer’s mentor, and Vilgefortz of Roggeveen (Mahesh Jadu), a powerful mage and member of the Brotherhood of Sorcerers. Vilgefortz is one one of the most important characters in The Witcher as well as one of its most memorable villains, and he’s often considered the most powerful character in this universe, and The Witcher season 3 set photos tease his villainous turn through an important battle against Geralt, which in turn leads to the death of a major character: Tissaia.,In the novel Time of Contempt, Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer travel to Thanedd island, where Geralt meets various interesting characters at the Grand Mage’s Conclave, among those Vilgefortz. The mage suggests that Geralt could train to become an even more powerful magic user and tries to persuade the witcher to join the Nilfgaardian traitors, but Geralt turns down the offer due to his political neutrality. The next morning, Geralt stumbles on an attempted coup, which gets more complicated as more betrayals come to light, and Vilgefortz confronts Geralt at the Tower of Gulls, where he repeats his offer to join the traitors. Vilgefortz ends up defeating Geralt, nearly killing him, and the witcher is later found by Triss Merigold, who with Tissaia’s help, teleports Geralt away from the island. During the coup, Tissaia freed the Nilfgaardian traitors, among those Vilgefortz, so they could have an even fight, and realizing this big mistake, Tissaia commits suicide after helping Geralt and Triss escape.,The set photos from The Witcher season 3 show a battle between Vilgefortz and Geralt, which fits with where the show is leading after the events of season 2, but this major fight is also teasing the death of Tissaia, which will surely have a heavy emotional impact on Yennefer. The Witcher season 3 is not only looking to be action-filled but it might also be a very emotional and shocking season, which could see some complex storylines (as is the one between Ciri and The White Flame) and some important losses.,Next: New Witcher Season 3 Character Makes Book Accuracy Concerns Worse
