Toss a coin to your new Witcher… Liam Hemsworth.

 

Yeap, you read that right. Henry Cavill announced on Instagram that he will be “laying down my medallion and my swords” and leaving Netflix’s hit fantasy series “The Witcher” after its upcoming third season. Stepping into the role of the monster hunter for season four, which is already green-lit, is Liam Hemsworth.

 

 

“My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures,” Cavill wrote in his post. “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.”

 

He continued, “Liam, good sir, this character has such a wonderful depth to him. Enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find.”

 

“As a Witcher fan, I’m over the moon about the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia,” he wrote. “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.” Hemsworth said in a statement.

 

Hemsworth is best known for his roles in The Hunger Games franchise.

 

According to Netflix in season 3, “As monarchs, mages, and beasts of the Continent compete to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri of Cintra into hiding, determined to protect his newly-reunited family against those who threaten to destroy it. Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to discover more about the girl’s untapped powers; instead, they discover they’ve landed on a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and treachery. They must fight back, put everything on the line — or risk losing each other forever.”
