Say Hello to Your New Geralt of Rivia

The more things change, the more the wig stays the same. On the heels of leaked photos from the set of The Witcher‘s fourth season, Netflix has released an official first look at Liam Hemsworth as Geralt of Rivia. Entertainment Weekly has the scoop, which includes an exclusive photo and a very short video (below) of Geralt leading his horse, which seems displeased by the blue-grey fog through which they are walking. Geralt turns—slowly, of course—and there you have it: Same witcher, new face.

Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich told Entertainment Weekly, “Cast and crew alike have been struck by the passion, energy, and embodiment Liam has brought to the character from Day 1 — scruffy beard, iconic scar, and all! We’re having so much fun filming season 4 and are excited to welcome fans along on this journey with us.”

Hemsworth took over the role after the departure of original Witcher star Henry Cavill, who left the series when it seemed like he was going to step back into Superman’s snug tights. (He is not.) Everything else appears to have stayed the same on the show’s Continent, where Geralt, Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), Jaskier (Joey Batey), and Cirilla (Freya Allan) face constant danger and drama.

The upcoming fourth season also features a lot of new characters and actors, including Sharlto Copley as bounty hunter Leo Bonhart and Laurence Fishburne as barber-surgeon Regis. Production on the fourth season began last month, just before Netflix announced that The Witcher will hang up its swords after a fifth season. The final two seasons will adapt three Witcher novels: Baptism of Fire, The Tower of the Swallow, and Lady of the Lake.

No premiere date has been announced for season four. icon-paragraph-end
