THE WITCHER star Liam Hemsworth is considering replacing Henry Cavill as Geralt Of Rivia

The Witcher star Liam Hemsworth is gearing up to play the new Geralt of Rivia in season 4 of the Netflix series, and he’s clearly bulked up in order to pick up where Henry Cavill left off. Check it out…

Work on The Witcher season 4 is expected to begin imminently and, when the Netflix series returns, Liam Hemsworth will take over the role of Geralt of Rivia from Henry Cavill.

Despite rumours to the contrary, the show’s third batch of episodes didn’t offer so much as a single hint about how the witcher’s face will change and instead wrapped up on something of an open-ended note. As a result, many fans are expecting a simple recasting with no explanation.

Even when The Witcher’s creative decisions let him down, Cavill still delivered what plenty of people felt was a pitch-perfect take on the sword-wielding hero. Needless to say, Hemsworth has big shoes to fill.

Sharing a recent workout photo, it’s clear the younger brother of Thor star Chris Hemsworth has been putting in some serious time at the gym to portray a suitably formidable and imposing version of Geralt.

This comes after Netflix recently announced that The Witcher has added Sharlto Copley as Leo Bonhart, James Purefoy as Skellen, and Danny Woodburn as Zoltan. They join Hemsworth, Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, Joey Batey and Laurence Fishburne.

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.  If they can embrace and lead the groups of misfits they find themselves in,  they have a chance of surviving the baptism of fire – and finding one another again.

The Witcher executive producer Tomek Bagiński talked last year about Geralt’s popularity and shared his belief that the character has reached a point where he can be recast similar to the likes of Batman and James Bond.

“Henry was a fantastic Geralt, but in the history of pop culture we have many actors who played the same character, and the character itself changed. I am most pleased that the series was created and became so popular. The Witcher has already reached the level of Batman, Superman and James Bond. Maybe we hoped to see him in a new version only in a few years, but it happened now. And that’s nothing new for iconic pop culture heroes.”

The Witcher season 4 is expected to premiere on Netflix in 2024/2025. Check out Hemsworth’s impressive physique in the Instagram post below.
