31 Oct – Bad news for Henry Cavill's fans - the actor will not be returning for Season 4 of Netflix's fantasy series, "The Witcher".
But good news for Liam Hemsworth's fans - the actor will be replacing Cavill.
The news was confirmed by both parties, with Cavill saying, "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," he added.
In response, Hemsworth took to social media and wrote, "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 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. @henrycavill @witchernetflix."
No details have been released as to why Cavill will not be returning, though it does coincide with his previous announcement that he will be making his return as Superman.
