It's been confirmed that season three will be based on The Time of Contempt, the second book in the original The Witcher saga by Andrzej Sapkowski. As readers will know, the instalment sees Yennefer, Ciri and Geralt journey to Aretuza so that Ciri can master her magic, but it's also been teased that there will also be some "dark" moments in the new episodes.
"In season three, we're introducing the Scoia'tael, this army of elves that's fighting on behalf of Nilfgaard," Lauren told Polygon last year. "And they don't come off so great. It's a pretty sort of harsh, dark storyline."
