This foreign born A- list actor was asked to step in and take over a role on a very popular streaming show.
The thing is, the actor he replaced might be coming back, and if he doesn’t, the whole thing might be canceled even though it had been scheduled to be renewed.

Henry Cavill Will Receive a ‘Heroic Sendoff’ in The Witcher Season Three
Cavill plays Geralt of Rivia in the hit streaming series, and has done so since it first premiered in 2019. Season Three is set to debut in 2023 and to many fans’ dismay, it will be the actor’s final appearance in the show. But since Netflix wasted no time in finding a replacement for the star, we won’t dilly dally either.
Why Henry Cavill Is Leaving The Witcher Season Four
In October, Cavill passed the mantle to Hemsworth, thanking The Witcher’s team on Instagram for the experience of playing one of his favorite literary heroes. “My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures, and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for Season Four,” Cavill wrote. “As with the greatest of literary characters, I pass the torch with reverence for the time spent embodying Geralt and enthusiasm to see Liam’s take on this most fascinating and nuanced of men. Liam, good sir, this character has such a wonderful depth to him, enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find.” – Source
The Witcher: Liam Hemsworth stuns as Geralt in jaw-dropping image
Since its launch in 2019, The Witcher has emerged as one of Netflix’s most successful franchises due in large part to Henry Cavill’s presence as the series leading man.
Not only does Cavill perfectly embody Geralt of Rivia, but the actor is a professed fan of the source material which has bled into his performance — and also made a difference in key aspects of the show as Cavill has been vocal about the story honoring author Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy world.
So needless to say, when news broke that Cavill would be departing the show in its upcoming fourth season with Liam Hemsworth tapped to replace him, fans were understandably hit with a wave of emotions. – Source
