Netflix's The Witcher series has been a contentious production, to say the least. Although it has its audience, large groups of fans seem to really loathe it. Additionally, there have been reports and allegations of behind-the-scenes fights, which many assume is the reason why Henry Cavill decided to hang up the wolf medallion and leave the role of Geralt of Rivia behind. As a result, Liam Hemsworth will take over the monster-slaying task for the upcoming season four.
But it looks like we won't see Hemsworth portraying Geralt anytime soon, as a new report from Redanian Intelligence (a long-time site covering all things The Witcher) says the series is coming to an end with its fifth season. It is said that work has currently resumed on writing the script for the fourth season, and once that has been completed, the script for the fifth season will also be written, as the plan is to produce these two seasons at the same time. Due to the strikes, filming on season four is said to start in the first half of 2024, before then take a break before production on season five starts.
Netflix still hasn't greenlit the fifth season of The Witcher, and the report reads: "Season 5 is very likely the final season of The Witcher on Netflix."
