The Witcher Season 3 gives Henry Cavill’s Geralt a “heroic farewell,” says showrunner

Though not intentionally written that way, The Witcher season 3 gives Henry Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia a “heroic farewell.”

So says series creator and showrunner Lauren Hissrich. In conversation with EWReflecting on Cavill’s time on the show, Hissrich said the team wanted to “honor that properly.”

According to Hissrich, The Witcher season 3 was inspired by Andrzej Sapkowski’s fourth book, Time of Contempt.

“What’s so interesting is that I think season 3 is the closest thing to a one-to-one adaptation of the books,” Hissrich revealed.

“Obviously we can’t do every side, but Time of Contempt has given us so many big action events, plot points, defining character moments, and huge reveals of a great bad. There’s so much to do that we’ve been able to stay really, really close with the books.”

There’s all sorts of speculation surrounding Cavill’s exit from The Witcher. Earlier this month, Hissrich denied claims that the show’s writers “mocked the books,” which allegedly angered Cavill. The uproar began when writer Beau DeMayo – who is now working on X-Men ’97 – said Some of his colleagues in The Witcher’s writing room actively “mocked” the source material written by Andrzej Sapkowski.

Hissrich continued to EW, “Geralt’s big turn is to give up neutrality and do whatever it takes to get to Ciri that. Geralt has a new mission in mind when we return to him in season four . He’s a slightly different Geralt than we expected.”

Acknowledging the irony of her words, since season four is set to see a new Geralt starring Liam Hemsworth, Hissrich concluded by stating, “That’s an understatement, by the way.”

Now many are wondering how this heroic farewell will go. Will there be death? Will there be destruction? Will Geralt change in the style of Dr. Regenerate Who? I think we’ll have to wait until summer to find out.

Meanwhile, The Witcher spin-off Blood Origin, which explores the making of the first Witcher prototype, launches on Netflix on December 25th.

Cavill is on his way from Netflix to Amazon after ending his stint on The Witcher, where the actor has signed a deal to bring Warhammer 40,000 to our television screens.
