When Was Season 4 of the Witcher Confirmed?
A few days before Halloween, Netflix said that season 4 would be coming soon. The show’s creators wrote on Instagram, “It’s official: The Witcher will be back for Season 4.”

The Witcher Season 4 Release Date
The likely start date has not yet been announced. But if we had to guess when The Witcher Season 4 might come out, it might be after all the episodes from the third season have been shown worldwide for the first time. It will probably air at the same time on the streaming service, which is 12:00 a.m. PT/3:00 a.m. ET.
As was said above, Netflix still needs to confirm a statement about the show’s official release date and time slot. So, this is just a guess that if the network keeps the same schedule, the next season might follow the same pattern and come out around the same time.
The Witcher Season 4 Cast
We all know that big changes are coming! In season four of The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia will be played by Liam Hemsworth instead of Henry Cavill. And while we’ll be sad to see Henry go, we can’t wait for Liam to get here.
Liam posted his thoughts about the role on Instagram and gushed about the person who played it before him. He put down, “As a fan of The Witcher, I’m thrilled to have the chance to play Geralt of Rivia. Henry Cavill has done a great job as Geralt, and I’m honored that he’s letting me take over and play the White Wolf in the next part of his story.”
The star of The Hunger Games went on, “Henry, I’ve been a fan of yours for years, and what you did with this well-known character inspired me. Even though I have big shoes to fill, I’m really excited to join The Witcher world.”
Still, at least we still have Henry for a whole third season! As for the rest of The Witcher season 4’s cast, we won’t know who is definitely coming back until we hear more. Whether or not they come back in S4 will depend on what happens in S3, so let’s hope there aren’t too many character deaths.
Anya Chalotra played Yennefer in season two of The Witcher, and Freya Allan played princess Ciri. We expect both of them to be back for season four.
The Witcher Season 4 Plot
“As monarchs, mages, and beasts of the Continent compete to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri of Cintra into hiding to protect his newly reunited family from those who want to destroy it,” the show’s official synopsis teases.
After the chaotic end of season two, the next set of episodes will mostly be about Ciri’s fate as a world-destroyer, or a world savior, if we ever want to see season four. There are a lot of people, including the princess’s father, who wants to use the princess’s power for their own gain, but at least Ciri now has Geralt and Yennefer on her side.
Since the third season hasn’t come out yet, we don’t know what the fourth season will be about yet. Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, Joey Batey, Royce Pierson, Anna Shaffer, Kim Bodnia, and more are all expected to be in the cast. As filming for season three began, a list of new cast members was confirmed. Some of them were already known by other big franchises.
