“The Witcher” Season 3 will feature Henry Cavill’s “Heroic Sendoff”

When Henry Cavill confirmed his return as Superman on Black Adam earlier this year, he made the announcement that he would be leaving The Witcher. However, this plan ultimately did not work out because new DC heads are reorganizing the universe. However, production on the third season of the Netflix series has already begun, and showrunner Lauren Hissrich is releasing teasers for the upcoming season.

Hissrich said that Cavill, who plays Geralt of Rivia, will have a “heroic sendoff” as the show gets ready to welcome Liam Hemsworth, who will play the lead role in Season 4.

“Geralt’s big turn is about giving up neutrality and doing anything that he has to do to get to Ciri [Freya Allan]. And to me, it’s the most heroic sendoff that we could have, even though it wasn’t written to be that,” Hissrich told Entertainment Weekly. “Geralt has a new mission in mind when we come back to him in season 4. He’s a slightly different Geralt than we expected. Now, by the way, that’s an understatement.”

Before Season 3 even starts streaming, Netflix gave The Witcher an early Season 4 renewal. Cavill thanked Hemsworth for his time on the show and issued a statement welcoming him.

“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,” he said. “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.”

Cavill has signed on to star and EP Warhammer 40,000 for Amazon Studios since leaving The Witcher and being cast as Superman in the DC Universe.
