Netflix has announced the sad news about the closure of a fan-favorite series following major cast shakeups.

Work on the fourth season of "The Witcher" has already begun as the third season wraps up. Fans started worrying after the starring actor noted that he was leaving in 2022. Liam Hemsworth replaced him, taking on Geralt's role.

Despite finding a new lead, the official announcement of the show's end confirms the rumors. Season five will commence immediately after the fourth, signifying the conclusion of Geralt's journey. We will draw the storyline from the last three books of Andrzej Sapkowski's book series: "Baptism of Fire," "The Tower of the Swallow," and "Lady of the Lake."

Proud of the achievements of showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who is now about to start the penultimate season, she promised an epic end to it all: "It wouldn't be our show if we didn't push our family of characters to their absolute limit." The giant has released a few snippets of behind-the-scenes footage for the cast as they get ready to shoot season four, whose date of release has not yet been announced. In the new season, Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri continue their journeys on the ravaged continent of wars on independent paths. They must ensure the survival of various groups and reunite them.

With the launch of The Witcher in 2019, the show has already grabbed the public's imagination over its world of fantasy. Despite its cancellation, the show has had a rich legacy with spin-offs and prequels, among others.
