Production has begun on the fourth season of The Witcher and Netflix has officially confirmed the show’s fifth season renewal. It’s also been revealed that the fantasy series will end with year five, Liam Hemsworth’s (above, second from the left) second season as the lead. Casting director Sophie Holland had previously stated that a fifth season was planned back in May 2023.

Starring Hemsworth, Lauren Fishburne, Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, Jodhi May, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson, Adam Levy, MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, Emma Appleton, Eamon Farren, Joey Batey, Lars Mikkelsen, Royce Pierreson, Maciej Musial, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte, and Anna Shaffer, the series follows Geralt of Rivia on his adventures.

Netflix said the following about the series’ renewal and teased season four:

Netflix has officially begun production of The Witcher Season 4 and shared a sneak peak of the cast together from the recent table read.

Netflix has also greenlit Season 5 of The Witcher, which will film back-to-back with Season 4, and will be the final chapter in Geralt’s story. Seasons 4 and 5 will adapt the remaining of Sapkowski’s books, Baptism of Fire, The Tower of the Swallow and Lady of the Lake, promising to offer an epic and satisfying conclusion to Netflix’s hit fantasy drama.

S4 Logline: After the shocking, Continent-altering events that close out season three, the new season follows Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri who are faced with traversing the war-ravaged Continent and its many demons apart from each other. If they can embrace and lead the groups of misfits they find themselves in, they have a chance of surviving the baptism of fire and finding one another again.

Creator Lauren Schmidt Hissrich also spoke about the series ending:

“It is with huge pride that we begin shooting our penultimate Season of The Witcher with a stellar cast, including some exciting new additions, led by Liam Hemsworth as Geralt of Rivia. We’re thrilled to be able to bring Andrzej Sapkowski’s books to an epic and satisfying conclusion. It wouldn’t be our show if we didn’t push our family of characters to their absolute limit – stay tuned to see how the story ends.”
