Toss a coin to your witcher… but is it still Henry Cavill?

Hold onto your potions, Continent connoisseurs. Netflix original The Witcher is back for Season 4, and things are brewing stronger than a troll's morning breath. This season promises monster hunts, magical mayhem, and a whole new Geralt of Rivia – but before we delve into the Continent's latest chaos, let's chat about the elephant in the room, or should we say, the White Wolf himself.

Yep, you heard that right. Henry Cavill, our beloved gruff but oh-so-charming Geralt, won't be wielding the witcher's silver sword this time around. Instead, Liam Hemsworth is stepping into the role. Now, Hemsworth is no stranger to battling beasts (remember those Hunger Games), but how will he fare as the monster-slaying Geralt we've grown to know?

One thing's for certain — The Witcher  Season 4 is about to shake things up. Settle in, and get ready to discuss everything with Witcher with your fellow fans. Will Liam Hemsworth fill Henry Cavill's boots? What challenges await Ciri?

The official release date for The Witcher Season 4 remains a mystery, guarded more closely than a rare witcher potion. While filming kicked off in April 2024, the complex post-production process, including special effects, means waiting until late 2024 or even early 2025 is a safe bet.  But hey, that just gives us more time to theorize about Geralt's new look and Ciri's upcoming adventures – keep an eye on this blog for all the latest Witcher intel!

The Witcher Season 4 promises a mix of familiar faces and exciting new additions. Liam Hemsworth takes centre stage as Geralt of Rivia, while Anya Chalotra returns as the powerful sorceress Yennefer and Freya Allan continues her journey as Ciri, the mysterious heir.  

Joining them are seasoned actors like Laurence Fishburne, who will bring the bookish vampire Regis to life, and Sharlto Copley, set to portray the ruthless bounty hunter Leo Bonhart. Fan favourites like Joey Batey's charming bard Jaskier and the mages Philippa Eilhart (Cassie Clare) and Vilgefortz (Mahesh Jadu) are also expected to return, making The Witcher  Season 4 a reunion for both the characters and the talented cast.

The Witcher Season 4 trailer

Patience, witchers! While a full-fledged trailer for The Witcher Season 4 hasn't been released yet (those monsters take time to render), Netflix did bless us with a first-look teaser.  It offers a glimpse of Liam Hemsworth as Geralt, clad in familiar witcher gear but with a slightly different vibe. We also see flashes of Yennefer, hinting at her continued magical prowess, and Ciri, showcasing her burgeoning power.  

The teaser is cryptic but thrilling, leaving us with more questions than answers. Will Geralt's gruff demeanour translate under Hemsworth's portrayal? What epic battles await Ciri? Keep an eye out for a full trailer closer to the release date, when Netflix will surely unleash all the action-packed glory.

The Witcher Season 3 wrapped up with a bang, leaving several cliffhangers to ponder. Ciri, traumatized by her visions and the dangers of her power, chose to relinquish her Elder Blood magic. Unfortunately, this didn't stop Nilfgaard. They captured a decoy Ciri, leaving the real Ciri to be rescued by a group of young rebels known as the Rats. Geralt, meanwhile, recovered from his injuries with Yennefer's help. He finally shed his neutrality, declaring war on Nilfgaard's Emperor Emhyr to rescue Ciri. The season ended with Geralt sending a chilling message to the Emperor, vowing to find Ciri no matter the cost.
