Henry Cavill, the lead of The Witcher Netflix series, will be replaced in season 4

It’s official, The Witcher frontman Henry Cavill will step down as Geralt in Season 4. The show has yet to air in Season 3, but Liam Hemsworth, known for roles such as Gale Hawthrone from The Hunger Games, will put himself in his place.

Cavill is reprising his role as Superman for DC, which means Hemsworth will take on the role. In a statement released by Cavill himself, he shared that he would “officially drop off my medallion and swords for Season 4.” He went on to say “in my place, the fantastic Mr Liam Hemsworth will take on my role as the white wolf”. Cavill gave his approval for his successor to even pass the “torch” with much praise.

Hemsworth shared how thrilled he was to take on the role, “honored” to be able to take the reins after Cavill’s performance. The Witcher series debuted in late 2019, and Cavill had been sporting the role since its first installment. It will be interesting to see how Hemsworth fulfills this role, especially following another actor. It looks like the takeover seems to be welcomed by both, and hopefully fans will be just as thrilled to see a new Geralt come Season 4.
