An action-packed clip from The Witcher season 3 shows Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, magic, swordplay, bloodshed, and broken bones

The Witcher season 3 will be split into two batches of episodes, with the first batch reaching the Netflix streaming service on June 29th and the rest being released on July 27th. With just days to go until the first batch of new episodes start streaming, a lengthy clip (nearly 3 minutes!) has arrived online to give us an early glimpse of an action sequence that features magic, swordplay, bloodshed, and broken bones. You can check it out in the embed above.

Inspired by a series of novels written by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family — the story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified.

The Witcher season 3 has the following synopsis: As monarchs, mages, and beasts of the Continent compete to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri of Cintra into hiding, determined to protect his newly-reunited family against those who threaten to destroy it. Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to discover more about the girl’s untapped powers; instead, they discover they’ve landed in a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and treachery. They must fight back, put everything on the line — or risk losing each other forever.

Henry Cavill reprises the role of Geralt for this season, but this is his last season on the show. As of season 4, the role is being taken over by Liam Hemsworth.

Cavill is joined in the cast by Freya Allan as Princess Cirilla of Cintra, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg, and Joey Batey as the bard Jaskier. Other returning actors from previous seasons include MyAnna Buring, Tom Canton, Jeremy Crawford, Eamon Farren, Mahesh Jadu, Terence Maynard, Lars Mikkelsen, Mimî M Khayisa, Royce Pierreson, Wilson Mbomio, Anna Shaffer, Therica Wilson-Read, Cassie Clare, Mecia Simson, Graham McTavish, Bart Edwards, Simon Callow, Liz Carr, Ed Birch, and Kaine Zajaz. Among the new additions to the cast are Robbie Amell (Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City), Meng’er Zhang(Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), Hugh Skinner (Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!), and Christelle Elwin (Bloods).
