The Witcher Season 4: Everything We Know So Far

It’s been a full year since the final season of The Witcher dropped its first five episodes before wrapping up the final three episodes the following month, and while a long wait is expected, the upcoming season is likely to have fans frothing at the mouth.

It’s no surprise that Henry Cavill is leaving the series due to the behind-the-scenes drama, and now people want to know what that means for the series as a whole.

However, aside from this not-so-minor cast change, everything else about the series remains the same, save for the epic conclusion of season three that will take the characters to largely uncharted territories and worlds in the following season.

Yes, The Witcher will be back in all its fantastical glory, but chances are most readers have known that since the series was confirmed to continue on the streaming platform in August 2022.

What is The Witcher about?

The adventure begins with Geralt of Rivia, Crown Princess Cirilla of Cintra, and the mysterious sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg, each navigating a maze of events across different timelines.

Their stories, rich in mystery and intrigue, eventually intertwine into one exciting tale.

The web of fate entwines Geralt and Ciri long before she is born, when Geralt inadvertently invokes the ancient “Law of Surprise,” binding their fates together.

When their paths finally cross, Geralt takes on the role of Ciri’s fierce protector, fighting against those who seek to harness her ancient blood and powerful magic for dark purposes.

Amidst danger and deception, Geralt and Ciri must unite to protect her power and their world from imminent threats.

The end of Season 3 certainly left things hanging with the trio of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri, each on their own path and quests, with ill-fated journeys ahead of them.

The only confirmed aspect of the series that viewers can expect to deal with is the “multiverse,” though it has yet to be revealed how this multiverse will be used.

“It is with great pride that we begin filming our penultimate season of The Witcher with a stellar cast, including some exciting new additions, led by Liam Hemsworth as Geralt of Rivia,” creator and producer Lauren Schmidt recently told Netflix regarding season four.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring Andrzej Sapkowski’s book series to an epic and satisfying conclusion. This wouldn’t be our series if we didn’t push our characters’ family to their limits – stay tuned to see how the story ends.”

How many episodes are in season 4 of The Witcher?

Although no official episode count has been released, there is a strong chance that the show will continue to release eight episodes as it did in the previous three seasons.

The source material for the series is quite extensive, so it’s likely that those behind the hit show have a lot to work with and don’t plan on limiting themselves.

It’s not uncommon for shows to recast characters for one reason or another due to scheduling complications or the ever-changing industry to keep up with trends and audience interests.

What rarely happens is a complete recasting of the main character in a highly rated series, and with a show like The Witcher, where the story is based on a beloved novel, fans have built an attachment to the face of the actor who embodies the character.

Especially when it comes to Henry Cavill’s face.

You’ve probably seen the memes by now comparing Henry Cavill and Liam Hemsworth about “how it looks on set and how it looks when it arrives.”

While many viewers weren’t happy, there’s a good chance this could lead to a higher viewership if it’s just curiosity.
