‘The Witcher’ Season 4 Adds Three New Names to Cast


After Henry Cavill’s departure from the series, The Witcher has been a hot topic of debate among fans of the original books and games. While Netflix has undeniably given us a proper adaptation in the initial seasons, many fans have expressed their doubts over the casting of Liam Hemsworth as Cavill’s replacement and have threatened to boycott the show. Still, it seems Netflix is proceeding with the series, as filming is scheduled to start this spring, with the fourth season of the popular series to premiere sometime in 2025, as per the rumors.

The official plot of the fourth season of The Witcher reveals the following: “After the shocking, Continent-altering events that close out season three, the new season follows Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri who are faced with traversing the war-ravaged Continent and its many demons apart from each other.”

As we have said above, we know that Liam Hemsworth is going to replace Henry Cavill as the titular hero, Geralt, but we have also received confirmation that three other actors are set to join the series in the upcoming season in new roles.

Sharlto Copley is the first addition to the series, and he will be playing Leo Bonhart, a bounty hunter who appeared in The Witcher novels. James Purefoy will also appear in the series in the role of Skellen, a high-ranking spy and court advisor, and likewise a very important figure in the novels. Finally, Danny Woodburn has also been confirmed in the role of Zoltan, a beloved dwarf character from both the novels and video games. 

These three additions, especially Purefoy, seem to be great, as Netflix is seemingly strengthening the cast after Cavill’s departure. Since January, we’ve known that Laurence Fishburne would also star in the fourth season in the role of the vampire Regis, a friend of Geralt’s and a fan-favorite character from the series.
