The Witcher Renewed for Season 4 - New Lead Cast

There are good news and bad news - on one hand, The Witcher will be returning for a fourth season. However, when that season premieres, Geralt will be looking a little different. Liam Hemsworth, who is known for his role in the Hunger Games movies, will be picking up the sword and donning the leather armour as Geralt of Rivia. Henry Cavill, who has been starring as Geralt for the past two seasons, and the upcoming third, has released a statement to announce he is leaving the show:

My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures, and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for Season 4. In my stead, the fantastic Mr. Liam Hemsworth will be taking up the mantle of the White Wolf. As with the greatest of literary characters, I pass the torch with reverence for the time spent embodying Geralt and enthusiasm to see Liam's take on this most fascinating and nuanced of men. Liam, good sir, this character has such a wonderful depth to him, enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find.

While there is no concrete reason for his departure, the most likely explanation is commitment to his newly announced return as Superman. That being said, as mentioned, season 3 is on its way, debuting in the summer of 2023, and while the news is certainly a shocking one, we're curious to see how Hemsworth leads in the role for the show's fourth season. Hemsworth also released a statement:

As a Witcher fan I’m over the moon about the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia. Henry Cavill has been an incredible Geralt, and I’m honoured that he’s handing me the reins and allowing me to take up the White Wolf’s blades for the next chapter of his adventure. Henry, I’ve been a fan of yours for years and was inspired by what you brought to this beloved character. I may have some big boots to fill, but I’m truly excited to be stepping into The Witcher world.
