Netflix’s The Witcher will formally be returning for a fourth season, yet it will do as such with a new Geralt of Rivia as Liam Hemsworth will supplant Henry Cavill after Season 3.
Netflix shared the news close by statements from both Cavill and Hemsworth.
“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,” Cavill said. “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.”
“As a Witcher fan I’m over the moon about the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia,” Hemsworth said. “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.”
This news follows the similarly internet-breaking news that Cavill would be returning as Superman in the DCEU. There is no word assuming these two decisions were connected, yet the timing of the declarations loans to the chance.
Liam Hemsworth is the younger brother of Chris Hemsworth, the actor who plays Thor in the MCU, and he has featured in such movies as The Hunger Games as Gale Hawthorne and Independence Day: Resurgence as Jake Morrison.
Season 3 of Netflix’s The Witcher will be released in Summer 2023, yet we actually have barely any familiarity with it. The first poster for the upcoming season was uncovered at Netflix’s TUDUM showcase, and it showed a shattering Wolf medallion that belongs to Geralt’s School of the Wolf close by a swallow – the symbol of Ciri.
