The Witcher Season 3 is set to release on Netflix in just a few days. And while its marketing strategy had everyone scratching their heads just a few weeks ago, the recent updates have earned nothing but gratitude from fans. Given how it is set to be the final season featuring Henry Cavill, there is an abundance of interest in the season. And for the first time, the creators also have a part to play in it.

Lauren Schmidt Hissrich is righting what fans regard as her biggest wrongdoing when it comes to The Witcher series. The showrunner revealed that this time, more than ever, they will stick closely to the book’s narration. And this was further solidified when Netflix released the title and synopsis of Volume 1. Apart from Season 3’s affinity to the books, the announcement of the time duration of the episodes has also been made in favor of fans.

Netflix’s popular series is to release its Season 3 Volume 1, which will be approximately 274 minutes long. This is a trope frequent in the projects that stay in the trending category all season long. However, fans of the fantasy series were skeptical after the streamer decided to divide the season into Volume 1 and 2.

But by making each volume as long as a season, the OTT Mogul has pleased The Witcher fans. Especially as they dread watching the final moments of Henry Cavill in the series. With each episode almost an hour long, there will be more than enough time to do justice to Andrzej Sapkowski’s work.

It is unclear whether they appear in Vol.1 or Vol.2. Given the announcement of the episode titles and synopsis, it seems they have saved the best for last. Apart from appearing in Season 3 Vol. 2, the group of troublemakers are also getting their own spinoff.
