Henry Cavill’s filming schedule in recent months has been both productive and frustrating. Both his role as Geralt in Netflix’s The Witcher series and his portrayal of Superman in DC Studios’ movies have been terminated while the studio tries to figure out its long-term film strategy. While fans may be sad to see Cavill move on from these projects to Amazon Studios’ planned Warhammer series, at least they may take solace in the fact that the current Geralt will get a heroic sendoff in season three, unlike what occurred with Superman.
This was revealed in an interview between Entertainment Weekly and The Witcher’s showrunner, Lauren Hissrich. Hissrich guarantees that season three will give Cavill’s Geralt as heroic a sendoff as possible before introducing the version of the character played by Liam Hemsworth in season four.
Hissrich went on to say that season three will be the show’s most authentic adaptation of the books to date, despite their inability to recreate every detail from the source material. Fans can expect to see more than just a new face in Geralt this season, as he finds a new objective to propel him forward in the wake of Season 3’s events.
In October, Cavill said he was leaving The Witcher series because he was sure DC Studios will hire him for additional Superman films. But soon after, news spread that he would not be returning to the DC Multiverse. To the actor’s good fortune, Amazon Studios rushed in and offered him a part in their forthcoming Warhammer series. Cavill, a lover of the tabletop series, was probably happy to take it, if only to assure he could afford to keep buying the numerous pricey Warhammer tabletop models he coveted.
Season 3 of The Witcher will premiere sometime in the summer of 2023. Next-Gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out now for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC, so fans can keep playing while they wait for Cavill’s final time as Geralt. Even though there were a few issues with the PC editions at launch, developer CD Projekt Red has been working hard to fix them, and players are ready to get back into the series.
