Today, Netflix announced a double-edged sword of news for The Witcher. The series has been renewed for a 5th season, as Season 4 enters production. However, Season 5 will also mark the end of the road for Geralt and friends. Season 5 will be the series’ final season. The remaining seasons will see Liam Hemsworth step into the role of Geralt, taking over for Henry Cavill. Seasons 4 and 5 are set to film back-to-back and adapt the remaining novels of The Witcher story. The story from Baptism of Fire, The Tower of the Swallow, and Lady of the Lake will comprise the final two seasons. This will allow the series to reach a planned conclusion.


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. 

Showrunner and Executive Producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich had this to say on the announcement:

It is with huge pride that we begin shooting our penultimate Season of The Witcher with a stellar cast, including some exciting new additions, led by Liam Hemsworth as Geralt of Rivia. We’re thrilled to be able to bring Andrzej Sapkowski’s books to an epic and satisfying conclusion. It wouldn’t be our show if we didn’t push our family of characters to their absolute limit — stay tuned to see how the story ends.
