The Witcher Season 4 OTT Release Date Netflix, Star Cast, Makers

Even before the release of its third season, which is set to premiere in the summer of 2023, Netflix’s fantasy drama series The Witcher has been renewed for a fourth season. It was created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.

The series is based on the same-titled book series by Polish author and well-known author of fantasy literature, Andrzej Sapkowski. On December 20, 2019, the series made its premiere. It was based on the short story collections “The Last Wish” and “Sword of Destiny,” which come before the main The Witcher Saga.

Following the popularity of the first season, which had eight episodes, the second season, which was based on the book Blood of Elves, was released in December 2021 and had eight episodes as well.

The show received a third season renewal in September 2022, with a mid-2023 premiere date. The Witcher: Blood Origin, a prequel miniseries, will also be released in December 2022.


While the announcement of The Witcher’s fourth season renewal made fans happy, it also came with the tragic news that Henry Cavill, who played the title character “Geralt of Rivia,” will not be returning.

But Liam Hemsworth will take over for Cavill to portray the role, and his character will come back. Cavill made the announcement in a post on his Instagram account, noting that the character’s journey had been full of monsters and adventures but, regrettably, he would not be returning for the fourth season. Instead, Liam Hemsworth will assume the role of White Wolf.

Hemsworth, on the other hand, declared that he is “over the moon” to have the chance to play “Geralt of Rivia.” In addition, he expressed his delight in entering The Witcher World. Anya Chalotra, Freya Allen, Eamon Farren, Joey Batey, MyAnna Buring, and more stars are anticipated to reprise their previous seasons’ roles in the fourth season.


The fantasy drama series on Netflix centres on the fictional “Geralt of Rivia,” who travels the continent battling ghouls, bruxas, and other creatures that go bump in the night. As they avoid the kings, mages, and monsters trying to capture Ciri, he forges an odd family along the way with the strong sorceress Yennefer and the Cintran princess.
