The Witcher was officially renewed by Netflix for a fifth season despite the fact that the third season has not yet premiered.
The news was confirmed by the show’s casting director, Sophie Hollandin an interview with Deadline. “We are about to start filming the fourth season with Liam Hemsworth and there will be a short window of time before we go directly to the fifth season,” he said.
The first installment of the third season of The Witcher arrives on the streaming platform on June 29, with the latest episodes of henry cavill as Geralt available to view a little later on July 27. According to TotalFilmcreative leaders considered ending the series due to Cavill’s departure, but decided against it because there were “too many stories to tell.”
Asked if she was “surprised” by Cavill’s departure from the role, Holland replied: “I probably won’t comment on that. I’d love to, but I won’t.” She added: “I’m really looking forward to seeing what Liam brings. He has a huge fan base. Season four will be a good mix of new characters and returning faces.”
Last month, Netflix posted the first photos of Cavill as Geralt in his final season playing the character. Fans on social media were quick to mourn Cavill’s upcoming loss from the show, with some saying it will “never be the same without him.” Some are also predicting that this will be the last season of the show.
Speaking about taking over from Cavill, Hemsworth said last year: “As a Witcher fan, I am thrilled at the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia. Henry Cavill has been an incredible Geralt, and I am honored that he hands me the reins and allows me to take up the blades of the White Wolf for the next chapter of his adventure.
“Henry, I have been a fan of yours for years and was inspired by what you brought to this beloved character. He may have some big boots to fill, but I’m really excited to step into the world of The Witcher.”
