Netflix’s The Witcher has been renewed for Season 4, but with a new leading man. The fantasy epic series will look quite different once it comes back for Season 4 since Liam Hemsworth is set to replace Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia.
This shocking announcement comes shortly after Cavill decided to return as Superman in the DCU. The British actor said that his journey on this show was filled with both monsters and adventures, adding that he’s enthusiastic to see Hemsworth embody this fascinating and nuanced character.
Hemsworth said he’s over the moon to play Geralt of Rivia because he’s been The Witcher fan for years, and thanked Cavill for allowing him 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,” said Hemsworth in a statement.
Cavill will bid his farewell when The Witcher returns for Season 3 on Netflix. Its release date is yet to be announced, but it will most likely premiere next summer.
