Why Henry Cavill Is Leaving The Witcher Season Four
In October, Cavill handed off the role to Liam Hemsworth, posting a thank-you to the cast and crew of The Witcher on Instagram for the opportunity to portray one of his favorite fictional characters. “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 Four,” wrote Cavill. Like with the greatest literary characters, I pass the torch to Liam, eager to see his interpretation of this most fascinating and nuanced of men. Good sir Liam, this guy is incredibly well-developed; I hope you enjoy exploring his many layers.
The official reason for Cavill’s departure is a mystery. Some viewers have speculated that there were creative differences between Cavil and the show’s creators, but no evidence has been presented. Star of the show’s prequel The Witcher: Blood Origin Minnie Driver believes fans should rejoice over the casting change rather than speculate. “We come from this tradition of Doctor Who where the Doctor regenerates,” she noted in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. I think we need to take a much more awestruck perspective. It has an incredible personality and a fascinating history.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich assured fans that Cavill would be given “the most heroic sendoff” possible when he eventually leaves the epic fantasy drama. “Henry has given so much to the show, and we want to honor that appropriately,” Hissrich added. Geralt’s major shift involves him abandoning his neutrality and doing whatever it takes to reach Ciri.
Even though it wasn’t meant to be, I take that as the most heroic farewell we could have. When we next see Geralt, in Season 4, he’s planning a new quest. He’s not quite the Geralt we were expecting to see.
