Double announcement for The Witcher. On the occasion of the announcement of the start of filming in the United Kingdom of the highly anticipated fourth season, Netflix has made official the renewal of the series for a fifth and final season. The final two seasons will be an adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski's remaining books, Baptism of Fire, The Tower of the Swallow, and The Lady of the Lake, and will offer an epic and satisfying conclusion to Netflix's great fantasy success.

The last two seasons of The Witcher will feature Liam Hemsworth after Henry Cavill's farewell

“It is with enormous pride that we begin filming the penultimate season of The Witcher with a stellar cast, including some exciting new additions, led by Liam Hemsworth as Geralt of Rivia. We are thrilled to be able to bring Andrzej Sapkowski's books to an epic conclusion. It wouldn't be our show if we didn't push our family of characters to their limits – just wait until you see how the story ends,” said showrunner and executive producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.

The stellar cast of the fourth season will be led by Liam Hemsworth for the first time in the role of Geralt of Rivia, joined by Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, and Joey Batey in the roles of Yennefer of Vengerberg, Princess Cirilla of Cintra and Jaskier respectively. The official synopsis for the new episodes reads: “After the shocking events that shook the Continent at the end of the third season, the new season sees Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri travel, separated, across the war-torn Continent with its many demons. If they can accept and lead the groups of outsiders they find themselves in, they will have a chance to survive the baptism of fire and find each other once again."
