The Witcher: Henry Cavill will be replaced by Liam Hemsworth in the series

The actor Henry Cavill will stop playing Geralt of Rivia in the fourth season of The Witcher. In an official statement released by Netflix this Saturday (29), the service confirmed that the actor will be replaced by Liam Hemsworth (The Last Song and Hunger Games). The reason for the change was not revealed by Netflix.


In a statement, Cavill confirmed the news and wished Hemsworth good luck. “My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with monsters and adventures, and unfortunately, I will lay down my locket and swords in Season 4.

In my place, the fantastic Mr. Liam Hemsworth will take on the mantle of the White Wolf (…) I pass the torch with reverence for the time spent playing Geralt and excited to see Liam’s opinion of this fascinating and nuanced man. Liam, this character has such a wonderful depth to him, take the time to dive in and see what you can find.”


Hemsworth celebrated the news on social media. “As a fan of The Witcher, I am very happy with the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia. Henry Cavill has been an amazing Geralt, and I’m honored that he’s giving me the reins and allowing me to take the White Wolf’s blades for the next chapter of his adventure,” he said.
