The season four teaser features Geralt leading his horse to water in a foggy night. After hearing growls behind them, he turns around, revealing the new face behind the character.

In Oct. 2022, Netflix announced that Cavill would be exiting the series after three seasons. “My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures, and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for Season 4,” he explained in a statement. “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.”

At the time, Hemsworth also expressed how thrilled he was to take over the role. “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,” he shared in a statement.

Hemsworth additionally addressed Cavill, praising the actor’s performance. “Henry, I’ve been a fan of yours for years and was inspired by what you brought to this beloved character. I may have some big boots to fill, but I’m truly excited to be stepping into The Witcher world,” he wrote.

In The Hollywood Reporter’cover story with Cavill from November 2021, the star said he planned to follow through with The Witcher series creator Lauren Schmidt Hissrich’s aim to have the show last at least seven seasons. “Absolutely,” Cavill said at the time about staying with the series. “As long as we can keep telling great stories which honor Sapkowski’s work.”

Netflix announced last month that The Witcher would be ending with the forthcoming fifth season. The final two seasons are filming back to back.
