According to Variety, Liam Hemsworth's casting as Geralt was a surprise for fans after Netflix announced Henry Cavill's departure in October 2022, shortly before the third season's release in summer 2023. The news coincided with Cavill's return to the DC Universe as Superman, although those plans ultimately fell through.

Cavill's farewell to Geralt was heartfelt. In an Instagram post, he expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to portray the character. “My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures,” he wrote. He acknowledged the responsibility of passing the torch, praising Liam Hemsworth and expressing his excitement to see his take on Geralt.
