The Witcher on Netflix will officially return for a fourth season, but Liam Hemsworth will play a different Geralt of Rivia after Henry Cavill steps down after Season 3.
No More Henry?
Cavill and Hemsworth both provided remarks for Netflix when they announced the news.
The great Mr. Liam Hemsworth will be taking up the role of the White Wolf in Season 4, Cavill added.
“My trip as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures, and regrettably, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for Season 4.” I hand the mantle to Liam with reverence for the time spent inhabiting Geralt and excitement to see his interpretation of this most intriguing and nuanced of individuals, as with the best literary characters. Liam, dear sir, enjoy digging in and seeing what you can find. This guy has such a lovely dimension to him.
Hemsworth expressed his excitement about the role of Geralt of Rivia in a statement. “As a Witcher fan, I’m over the moon about the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia, and I’m honored 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. I’ve been a fan of yours for a long time, and I was moved by the life you gave to this adored character. I may have some large shoes to fill, but I’m really looking forward to entering The Witcher universe.
This information comes after the equally shocking report that Cavill would be playing Superman once more in the DC Extended Universe. Although it has not been confirmed, it is possible that these two choices were connected given the timing of their announcements.
Liam Hemsworth, who has appeared in movies including The Hunger Games and Independence Day: Resurgence, is the younger brother of Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Witcher Season 3 on Netflix will debut in the summer of 2023, but little is known about it yet. At Netflix’s TUDUM display, the first season’s poster was unveiled. It featured a swallow, which is Ciri’s emblem, combined with a shattered Wolf pendant from Geralt’s School of the Wolf.
