Henry Cavill’s journey as Geralt of Rivia is coming to an end as he won’t be returning for The Witch Season 4. This announcement comes after Cavill rejoins the DC Universe as Superman.

“My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with monsters and adventures, and sadly, I will be laying down my medals and sword for Season 4,” said Cavill. “In my place, the fantastic Mr Liam Hemsworth will take over the White Wolf’s cloak. As with the greatest literary characters, I give the torch with respect for the time spent embodying Geralt and enthusiasm for seeing Liam’s take on this most interesting and nuanced man. Liam good lord this character has great depth to him, enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find. ”

Liam Hemsworth, who is the brother of Chris Hemsworth, is best known for his role as Gale Hawthorne in Hunger Games film series and as Jake Morrison in Independence Day: Resurrection.

As Witch I’m really excited about the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia,” said Hemsworth. “Henry Cavill has been a wonderful Geralt, and I am honored that he gave me the reins and allowed me to take the White Wolf sword for the next chapter of his adventure. Henry, I have been a fan of yours for years and was inspired by what you brought to this beloved character. I may have some big boots to fill but I’m really excited to step up The Witch world. ”

The Witch is an epic tale of fate and family, centered around the solitary monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, the powerful wizard Yennefer, and the young Cintrian princess Ciri as they learn to navigate an increasingly volatile Continent together. The series stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Princess Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg, MyAnna Buring as Tissaia, and Joey Batey as Jaskier.

“As the kings, wizards, and beasts of the Continent compete to capture him, Geralt takes Ciri from Cintra into hiding, determined to protect his newly reunited family from those who threaten to destroy him,” says the official synopsis for season three. “Entrusted with Ciri’s magic training, Yennefer takes them to the protected Aretuza fortress, where she hopes to discover more about the girl’s untapped powers; instead, they discover that they have landed on a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and betrayal. They must fight back, risk everything — or risk losing each other forever.”
