DISCLAIMER: Contains spoilers for Season 3 of 'The Witcher'

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: This summer marks the release of 'The Witcher's' third season on Netflix, and fresh information is now becoming available. 'The Witcher' has had its ups and downs, but with the departure of Henry Cavill, which shocked fans last year, there is a different kind of pressure looming ahead of season 3, as he is essentially the face of the show and his performance is by far the most universally praised aspect of the production.


Showrunner Lauren S Hissrich had previously hinted at a "heroic sendoff" for Cavill. But how exactly will they handle Cavill's Geralt's curtain call?

Cavill's Geralt will give up being a witcher

Cavill will reportedly turn his back on being a witcher in his final appearance as Geralt, according to the Witcher fan blog Redanian Intelligence. Here is how they described the scene, "We’ve learned that Henry Cavill‘s final scene as Geralt of Rivia will be him giving up being a witcher. A supporting character will call for him, yelling “Witcher!“, to which Geralt will answer: “No, no more,” implying that he no longer considers himself a witcher now."

Given that Geralt performs a very identical action towards the conclusion of Andrzej Sapkowski's 'The Tower of the Swallow', it is possible that Netflix sped up the action a little, or a lot. In the novel, the character also gave up being a witcher and witnessed the melting of his medallion in a fire. However, it came about in other circumstances.


Green signal for Seasons 4 & 5 of 'The Witcher'

Season 3 of 'The Witcher' is nearing completion, and Netflix is apparently keen to begin planning for the future, with Seasons 4 and 5 already greenlit. According to sources, Season 4 writing has reportedly started, and Season 5 writing will follow soon. We have quite a little information about what the fans can look forward to after Cavill's exit from the show. From the fourth season on, Liam Hemsworth will take Henry Cavill's position, according to What's on Netflix. The source also claims that Liam Hemsworth and Sebastian Stan were the early front-runners for the part of Geralt of Rivia during the season 1 casting process. Not only that but, a group of young outlaws known as "The Rats" will be introduced towards the end of Season 3, and will have its own spin-off series.
