The Witcher Netflix series based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s best-selling books, and drawing some inspiration from CD Projekt Red’s video games, has announced a major change for Season 4.

While Season 3 will play out as normal with Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, it’s been announced Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games, Independence Day: Resurgence) will replace him in the following season.

In a statement on Netflix’s website, the British actor wished the 32-year-old Australian actor all the best as the White Wolf:

“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.”

Hemsworth mentioned how he’s a fan of The Witcher and has been a fan of Cavill for many years, and is thrilled about his new adventure. This announcement follows the news earlier this week that Henry Cavill would be reprising his role as Superman in the DC universe.

On a related note, CD Projekt Red announced a remake of the original Witcher game this week. This title was first released in 2007 and will be rebuilt from the ground up in Unreal Engine 5. The new version is being developed by Polish studio Fool’s Theory – with veteran Witcher series staff helping out.

CDPR is still working on the next-gen update for The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt as well, and intends to release it by Q4 2022. This will also come with some new DLC inspired by the Netflix show, which has been previously confirmed for Nintendo Switch by the Polish company:

“the DLCs are not exclusive to the next-gen version, they will be available for every version of the game (including PS4, Xbox One and Switch)”
