As before reportedthe third season of the series”Witcher“will be the last for Henry Cavill, after which the role of Geralt of Rivia will be transferred to Liam Hemsworth. However, new details are gradually being revealed about the reasons for the actor’s departure.
Yes, according to sources Redanian Intelligence, Henry Cavill considered leaving the series during the second season’s post-production due to creative differences with the show’s creators.. Actor supposedly did not see eye to eye with the producers regarding his character and the general content of the series.
One of the confirmations of this is the actor’s interview for 2021, in which he declared his desire to adhere to Andrzej Sapkowski’s book source.
“The hardest part for me was finding the balance between the showrunners’ vision and my love for the books, and also trying to convince the showrunners to bring the bookish Geralt to the screen. All my requests were to just be true to the source material.”
It is also worth recalling a recent interview with one of the former writers of The Witcher, who told about the disdainful attitude of the writing team towards the source material and even the games produced by CD Projekt RED.
Season 3 of The Witcher will premiere in summer 2023. The fourth and fifth seasons are already in development, the shooting of which will take place simultaneously.
