With The Witcher blessing us with season three, the cast is excited as ever to be back. This will also be the season that viewers see Henry Cavill play the lead one last time before his big exit. The intense mixed feelings amongst fans cannot be denied, but the team is trying its best to keep up the spirits. This includes everything from discussing the show to playing games, and even reading excerpts from the original book.

Way before the show came, the book series of the same name by Polish novelist Andrzej Sapkowski garnered a fan base. Netflix then adapted the series to make its own show through the lens of Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. Cavill was always a fan of the novels and now the other cast members have hopped on the train too.
