For this very reason, fans were left speechless when it was announced that Cavill would be leaving the show after the third season, only to be replaced by Liam Hemsworth. Although an official explanation has not yet been provided, rumors circulating in recent months suggest that Cavill left the show due to substantial differences between the series and the books by Andrzej Sapkowski.

During a recent interview published by Total Film, Hissrich explained why the production decided to replace Cavill: “We had a chance to get Geralt out and end the show. But we weren’t willing to do it, for the simple fact that there are still too many stories to tell.”

The meeting between Renfri and Geralt

If we had replaced Geralt with another Witcher, we would have completely departed from the books, and I don’t think anyone would have wanted that. We are all excited for Liam’s arrival. He will face a huge challenge, but he is full of energy and enthusiasm for the role. It is obviously a completely new chapter for us. And there are a lot of emotions involved. But ultimately, we love what we do and so we will continue to do it“concluded the showrunner of The Witcher.
