The release of The Witcher season 3 trailer has created a interest among fans of the Netflix series. While some are excited about the upcoming season, others are hesitant to watch it now that Henry Cavill has left the show.
On top of all that, fans of the Witcher already have rightfully taken issue with the writers not sticking to the source material. An issue that Henry Cavill himself brought up to the powers that be and writers of the series.
Netflix has revealed that the upcoming season 3 of The Witcher will be divided into two segments, with the first part debuting on June 29th and the second on July 27th. This will be Henry Cavill’s last portrayal of Geralt of Rivia in the series. To provide viewers with a sneak peek of Cavill’s performance, a teaser trailer has been released.
Cavill will be replaced by Liam Hemsworth for season 4 (if it actually goes ahead).
“Henry Cavill has been an incredible Geralt. I’m honoured that he’s handing me the reins and allowing me to take up the White Wolf’s blades for the next chapter of his adventure,’ Liam Hemsworth said in his Instagram post.
Netflix announced the change in the show’s cast on Saturday, October 29, the very same day that it confirmed the show would be renewed for a fourth season.
Cavill shared a statement through Netflix, which said: “My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures, and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for Season 4.”

The Witcher was renewed for a third season before the release of the second. Season 2 continues the story of Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), who is on a mission to keep Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) safe after the Battle of Sodden. He takes her to Kaer Morhen, his childhood home and the safest place he knows. However, the danger does not end there, as Geralt must protect the princess from the mysterious power she possesses, which is far more dangerous than anything else on the Continent.
The Witcher Netflix series is executive produced by Steve Gaub, Matt O’Toole, Mike Ostrowski, Javier Grillo-Marxuach, Platige Films (Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko) and Hivemind Content (Jason Brown and Sean Daniel).
