‘The Witcher’ Seemingly Already Renewed for Season 5

Many believed that The Witcher would not live long with the upcoming third season being the final one of Henry Cavill in the role of Gerald of Rivia. His departure was heavy considering Cavill was extremely passionate about playing the character and loved the source material. While he’s not set to spearhead his own project with a Warhammer 40K adaptation for Amazon, there have been various discussions behind the scenes on why he left the project.

Supposedly, he didn’t quite see eye to eye with the franchise’s direction, which was deviating more and more from the original novel series. While it’s not uncommon that changes are made in adaptations, it started heading into more original content than an adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s work, as he even went on to sneak book moments in himself into the series.

With him leaving, Liam Hemsworth is set to take over as Gerald and will take over starting Season 4. Surprisingly, it seems that we’re going to see a lot more of his Witcher with casting director Sophie Holland confirming they will be jumping straight into a fifth season once they finish the fourth one with him in the role.

We’re just about to start filming on season four with Liam Hemsworth and there will be a short gap then we go straight into season five.

It’s surprising that the usual reserved Netflix isn’t going to wait and see what their audience size looks like once a new actor takes over. Perhaps, they fully believe in this project and the fifth season could be mapped out as a finale. They could run for quite some time and Netflix seems quite desperate to find a franchise that can carry momentum for a long time, but they keep floundering any chance by swiftly canceling projects that don’t perform to their high standards. We’ll have to see what they have in store beyond Cavill’s run with the character.
