The reason for Cavill’s departure was not mentioned, but the actor made a post on instagram as farewell. See below:
“My journey as Geralt has been filled with monsters and adventures and unfortunately I will be leaving my locket and swords down in season four. In my place, the fantastic Liam Hemsworth will take on the mantle of the White Wolf. As with the greatest literary characters, I pass the torch in awe of time playing Geralt and am excited to see Liam’s version of this fascinating and nuanced man. Liam, my good lord, this character has a wonderful depth, take the time to dive in and see what you can find.”wrote Cavill.
no Netflix official announcement Hemsworth stated that he is excited to play the wizard.
the third season of The Witcher is yet to release in 2023. The series is scheduled to run for seven seasons in all.
