The Witcher took us on quite a journey since premiering on Netflix five years ago, but all good things must come to an end. We’ll soon have to bid farewell to Geralt of Rivia after Netflix announced they’re renewing this series for its fifth and final season.

Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who created this series for Netflix, said they’re “thrilled to be able to bring Andrzej Sapkowski’s books to an epic and satisfying conclusion,” and promised they’ll push the characters to their absolute limit in the final season.

Netflix also announced that Season 4 kicked off production, with Liam Hemsworth in the lead role. He’s stepping in for Henry Cavill, who made the shocking decision to leave this series after its third season.

Hemsworth will serve as a co-lead alongside Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan, and he’s excited to step into The Witcher world.

“As a Witcher fan, I’m over the moon about the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia. Henry Cavill has been an incredible Geralt, and I’m honored 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,” said Hemsworth when his casting was first announced.

Joey Batey, Mimî M. Khayisa, Anna Shaffer, Royce Pierreson, Wilson Mbomio, and Mahesh Jadu are also expected to return in Season 4, along with the new cast member Laurence Fishburne.
