After a long delay, filming for the fourth season of The Witcher has started. Now, the first photos from the set are beginning to emerge, revealing Geralt of Rivia’s new look

The finale of The Witcher season 3 was explosive, to say the least. Tragedies struck left right and centre, as Geralt and his friends faced more powerful enemies than they’d ever seen before.

The series, based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s series of fantasy novels, is one of Netflix’s flagship productions, so it’s no surprise that season 4 is on the way. We’ve gathered all the most important information about the next chapter of the show.

The Witcher season 4 potential release date

In October 2022, Netflix announced the fourth instalment of The Witcher. Filming was set to start in May 2023. However, due to WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, production was paused, and filming was delayed.

Works on the series resumed on 18 April 2024. The creators released a clip showing the cast of The Witcher during the first table reading.

For now, it’s hard to say when The Witcher season 4 may be released. Most probably, we won’t see the show’s new episodes until 2025.

Who’s in the cast for season 4?

The fourth season of The Witcher is about to undergo a real revolution in casting. Netflix has announced that Henry Cavill is leaving the series, with Liam Hemsworth taking over as Geralt.

For viewers, the news came as a real shock, especially as Cavill himself had been vying for the lead role when the show began. Although neither Netflix nor the actor revealed the reasons for the decision, it’s unofficially said that Cavill resigned due to growing dissatisfaction with the direction of the series.

However, we assume that other actors known from previous seasons will return to their roles. This could include the following:

Freya Allan – Ciri

Anya Chalotra – Yennefer

Joey Batey – Jaskier

Anna Shaffer – Triss Merigold

Eamon Farren – Cahir Mawr Dyffryn aep Ceallach,

Mahesh Jadu – Vilgefortz

Mimi Ndiweni – Fringilla

Lars Mikkelsen – Stregobor

Mecia Simson – Francesca Findabair

Royce Pierreson – Istredd

Therica Wilson-Read – Sabrina Glevissig

Cassie Clare – Phillipa

Graham McTavish – Dijkstra

Ben Radcliffe – Giselher

Christelle Elwin – Mistle

Fabian McCallum – Kayleigh

Aggy K. Adams – Iskra

Juliette Alexandra – Reef

Connor Crawford – Asse

Wilson Mbomio – Dara

Bart Edwards – Emperor Emhyr

Hugh Skinner – Radovid

Meng’er Zhang – Milva

The casting announcement for the role of Emiel Regis, one of the most beloved characters from the books and games of the Witcher universe, came as a big surprise. The mysterious surgeon will be played by Laurence Fishburne, who is best known for his roles in The Matrix and John Wick.

One of the most terrifying characters from Andrzej Sapkowski’s books is the bounty hunter Leo Bonhart, who is tracking Ciri. In the Netflix series, Sharlto Copley, known for such films as District 9 and Elysium, will play the cruel mercenary.

The fourth season will also feature a cunning Nilfgaard spy, Stefan Skellen – Emperor Emhyr’s special task man. The intelligence officer will be portrayed by James Purefoy, who became popular for his role as Mark Antony in the Rome series.

The dwarf Zoltan Chivay, Geralt’s good friend, will be played by Danny Woodburn, who recently appeared in the series Willow.

Season 4 won’t see the return of Tissaia (MyAnna Buring), Lydia (Aisha Fabienne Ross), Rience (Sam Woolf), Filavandrel (Tom Canton), Artorius (Terence Maynard) and Gallatin (Robbie Amell).

What will the plot of season 4 of The Witcher be?

The fourth season of the series will be based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s novel Baptism of Fire – the third volume of the so-called Witcher saga. However, it’s difficult to say what events from the book will make it into the series, given that the show’s creators have often strayed far from the novels.

In Baptism of Fire, a team is formed to search for Ciri, who went missing after the Thanedd Coup. Geralt and Jaskier, along with the archer Milva, wander the war-ravaged continent, and, along the way, they meet dwarf Zoltan Chivay, Cahir and the mysterious Emiel Regis. We assume that this story in the series will remain unchanged.

During this time, Ciri joins the Rats – a group of young bandits involved in assaults and robberies. During her stay with the crew, she lets the dark side of her nature come out, but also finds love.

It’s difficult to predict what awaits Yennefer in season 4. In the book, after the Thanedd Coup, she stays as a guest with Francesca Findabair, who saved her from the mage Rience. During this time, Philippa Eilhart establishes a secret Lodge of Sorceresses to protect the interests of mages and change the fate of the world. Yennefer gets the opportunity to join the conspiracy, despite not being fond of the idea.

In season 4 we will undoubtedly see the Lodge’s activities, but we don’t know yet what role Yennefer will play in it.

How to watch the next series of The Witcher

As this is a Netflix original, it should come as no surprise that it’s exclusive to the streaming service.

Will there be a season 5 of The Witcher?
