On Saturday, Hemsworth broke the news on his Instagram account. As a massive fan of “The Witcher” series, Hemsworth expressed his excitement at the chance to play Geralt of Rivia.
Henry Cavill has done a fantastic job as Geralt, and I feel privileged to be taking over the role and picking up the White Wolf’s blades in the next chapter of his story. Even Cavill shared his thoughts on the matter on Instagram.
It has been an exciting and terrifying ride playing Geralt of Rivia, but sadly, I must put away my medallion and blades for Season 4. “Mr. Liam Hemsworth, a superb actor in his own right, will now assume the role of White Wolf in my absence.
Just as I would do with the best literary characters, I hand the torch to Liam, eager to witness his interpretation of this fascinating and complex man.” Since its premiere in 2019, The Witcher has been an enormous success for Netflix.
Season 3 of the show won’t premiere until the middle of 2023. Cavill didn’t give a reason for leaving the role, but following an appearance in the latest DC movie Black Adam, it was confirmed that he would be returning as Superman.
