We don’t have an exact month but at least around nine months to wait. Henry Cavill won’t be a part of the world’s popular series The Witcher after Season 3. Liam Hemsworth has taken the position of Henry Cavill in the Netflix series.
On October 29, The Witcher Season 4 was announced. It’s sad for Henry Cavill fans that he won’t be returning as Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher Season 4 but you would be happy to hear that he is returning to DC Films’ Superman franchise.

You can read a quote from both Cavill and Hemsworth shared by Netflix.
“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,” Cavill said. “In my stead, the fantastic Mr Liam Hemsworth will be taking up the mantle of the White Wolf. As with the greatest of literary characters, I pass the torch with reverence for the time spent embodying Geralt and enthusiasm to see Liam’s take on this most fascinating and nuanced of men. Liam, good sir, this character has such a wonderful depth to him, enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find.”
This is internet-breaking news that Cavill would be returning as Superman in the DCU. It will be a surprised to all the fans if these two decisions were related, there is no word to say but the timing of the announcements does lend to the possibility.
The official Instagram handle of The Witcher welcomed Liam Hemsworth and shared the news. “It’s official: The Witcher is returning for Season 4, and Henry Cavill will be handing his swords to Liam Hemsworth as the new Geralt of Rivia after Season 3. Welcome to the Witcher family, @liamhemsworth (sic)”.
Hemsworth shared his feelings and said “As a Witcher fan I’m over the moon about the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia, Henry Cavill has been an incredible Geralt, and 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. Henry, I’ve 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 truly excited to be stepping into The Witcher world.”
