The Witcher season 4: Cast Details, Release Date & Plot

We might still be waiting for the highly-anticipated season three, expected to land on Netflix in summer 2023, but The Witcher season four has officially been confirmed – and we are in for some major changes.

Making the announcement this week, the creators of the Game of Thrones-esque show revealed that the fourth installment of the supernatural show is in the works – with a new star!

Since the first season landed on Netflix back in 2019, it’s been a roaring success, breaking records for being the most streamed debut in history at the time.

The Witcher season 2 dropped days before Christmas in December 2021 and while fans still have the confirmed prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin – a show that will tell the story of the very first witcher in a time when the worlds of monsters and men were separate – they’ve still got a long wait for season 3.

So, what’s actually in store for The Witcher season 4? Here’s everything we know so far.…

When was The Witcher season 4 confirmed?

Netflix announced season 4 was coming days before Halloween. On the show’s Instagram page, creators wrote: “It’s official: The Witcher is returning for Season 4.”

The post also revealed the big news that Liam Hemsworth was taking over from Henry Cavill, writing. “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!”

What will Season 4 of The Witcher be about?

It’s hard to determine exactly what the plot will be for season 4 since we’re still a long way off seeing the third season. However, since the series is based on the fantasy novels and short stories written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, it’s likely season 4 will adapt the next novel, Baptism of Fire. Here, war rages between Nilfgaard and the Northern Kingdoms. Geralt (now Liam Hemsworth) gathers a band including Milva of Brokilon Forest, dwarf Zoltan Chivay, and an ancient vampire called Regis.

Who will star in The Witcher season 4?

As we know, we have a new lead in season 4 with Liam Hemsworth taking over from Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia.
