What Are the Chances That Henry Cavill Might Return to ‘The Witcher’?

After the second half of Season 3 of The Witcher airs on July 27th, fans may be wondering if the show has officially been renewed for a fourth season. However, due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, production for Season 4 is reportedly likely to be delayed, which might affect the premiere date. Nevertheless, viewers can anticipate further exploration of Geralt’s storylines with a few intriguing new plot developments in the new season.

It’s understandable that fans might hold out hope for another season of seeing him return. He brings a charm of cynicism and gruffness to his character, well complemented by the ferocity and physique that make the battle scenes brutal and believable. Throughout the past three seasons, Cavill’s performance as Geralt has been constant, but the show has significantly diverged from its source material at times, receiving mixed reviews from audiences and critics.


Unfortunately, Cavill announced in October that he would be stepping away from his role as Superman in the DC Universe, finding out that his return was not happening. Despite the announcement, some fans may have hoped that things would change. However, the show will continue without Cavill, with Liam Hemsworth taking over the role of Geralt for season 4 and beyond. Cavill’s departure will occur after season 3 of The Witcher, with the show’s renewal for season 4. Regrettably, Cavill will not be returning for The Witcher’s season in 2022.

The Witcher. The unclear departure from Cavill’s role as Superman has led to speculation and confusion. Many wondered if his departure from The Witcher would result in him falling back into the role of Superman, as a result of backtracking on his decision. It seems that he was misled and there was a misunderstanding about his exit. However, it is uncertain if The Witcher can survive without Cavill’s departure. The DCU community is left questioning his commitment to The Witcher, considering the news of his potential return as Superman.

Although it has been confirmed that Cavill will not be returning as the Witcher in the upcoming season, unless it is explained and acknowledged in the show, there has always been a small possibility of Cavill making a cameo or appearing in flashbacks, especially since the Witcher has teased Geralt’s involvement with Hemsworth. If the show continues for subsequent seasons, it seems likely that Cavill will maintain his role, but Hemsworth is still being considered as a replacement for Cavill in season 4.
