The Witcher Season 4 is renewed or not, let’s find out the details you need to know about the upcoming season of the series.
Expect a new Geralt soon!
The Witcher, Netflix’s key fantasy series, just completed its third season, and fans are keen to hear how long they will have to wait until they return to The Continent.
When the show returns, there will be one significant difference: Henry Cavill will be replaced in the starring role of Geralt by The Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth, a casting move that has been met with major backlash.
Here’s all we know thus far about Season 4 of The Witcher on Netflix.
Release Date of The Witcher Season 4
The Witcher Season 4 filming was reportedly scheduled to begin in September 2023, giving us the next season sometime in the latter half of 2024.
Unfortunately, the new season’s production has been delayed, most likely due to the continuing WGA and SAG strikes. For the time being, filming is set to begin next year.
If filming starts very early in 2024, we may still see a December 2024 release, but that appears unlikely, so plan on 2025 for the following season.
The cast of The Witcher Season 4
The primary difference in The Witcher season 4 cast is that Liam Hemsworth’s Geralt has replaced Henry Cavill’s Geralt.
The majority of the previous season’s cast members are likely to return. The following actors are likely to appear in the fourth season:
Liam Hemsworth – Geralt of Rivia
Anya Chalotra – Yennefer of Vengerberg
Cassie Clare – Philippa Eilhart
Hugh Skinner – Prince Radovid
Mecia Simson – Francesca Findabair
Freya Allan – Ciri
Mahesh Jadu – Vilgefortz
Joey Batey – Jaskier
Eamon Farren – Cahir
Mimi M Khasiya – Fringilla Vigo
Bart Edwards – Emperor Emhyr
Graham McTavish – Sigismund Dijkstra
Sharlto Copley – Leo Bonhart
Other new characters who might appear in The Witcher season 4 include:
Geralt’s longtime acquaintance and dwarf, Zoltan Chivay
The vampire Regis
Sheila de Tancarville, Creyden sorceress and founder of the Lodge of Sorceresses
Aspire var Anahid, a Nilfgaarddian wizard and founder of the Lodge of Sorceresses
Ida Emean aep Sivney, an elf sorcerer who later becomes a member of the Lodge
What should we anticipate in The Witcher Season 4?
Ciri’s being with The Rats will likely be a significant feature in the upcoming season. Geralt’s plot is more typical, as he, Jaskier, and Milva set off on their voyage to Nilfgaard.
They encounter numerous intriguing people along the journey in Baptism of Fire, including a vampire named Regis.
The dwarf Zoltan Chivay will appear in the show, and Geralt will almost certainly meet up with Cahir again.
Because the show has changed things, Yennefer’s plot is more convoluted. Her political activities with the Lodge of Sorceresses will likely be explored further.
The Lodge forces Yennefer to help them find Ciri for their purpose in Baptism of Fire. Francesca has Yennefer imprisoned within a jade figurine. Fringilla is the one who assists Yennefer in escaping.
Watching how this plays out and whether things change in the show adaptation will be fascinating.
How many episodes will The Witcher 4 have?
Thus far, each season of The Witcher has had eight episodes. Therefore, season 4 should include eight episodes as well.
