Henry writes in a social media statement: ❝ 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.

Meanwhile, Liam Hemsworth is excited about this new adventure: ❝As a Witcher fan I’m over the moon about the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia,” he said in a statement. “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.

Based on the best-selling book by Andrzej Sapkowski, the series follows the journey of the witcher Geralt across the Continent battling all manner of monsters and evils. On this journey, he bonds with the powerful mage Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) and the princess Cintran Ciri (Freya Allan) as they run from wizards, kings, and monsters who trying to capture Ciri.

Indeed, there Γ­ still a long way to go before Hemsworth starts taking Geralt's swords and medallation. The Witcher: Blood Origin - a prequel that explores the creation of the first prototype Witcher - will premiere on December 25, 2022 and The Witcher Season 3 will follow shortly after in the summer of 2023.
