That was a new tactic used by Netflix to announce indirectly in October 2022 that season 4 has definitely been renewed. 

What Is The Speculated Cast of Witcher Season 4?

We are already aware that Henry Cavill will not be there in season 4 as Liam Hemsworth will be taking over his role of Geralt.

However, the remaining season 3 cast will not be disturbed, including  Anya Chalotra and Freya Allen, who play Yennifer and Ciri. 

Plus, other cast members, such as Mecia Simpson and Bart Edwards, who play Francesca and Emhyr, are more likely to be there in season 4.

You never know when you will meet a new character in the show, as the show also surprised us with a few new faces in the past.

What can we expect in The Witcher Season 4?

The first season of The Witcher was highly adapted from the prequels of the original book, The Witcher Series. Moreover, you will barely see anything from the first three books of the many The Witcher Series books.

So, long story, we cannot speculate any particular plot from the books.

Also, season 3 didn’t give any hints or cliffhangers about what might happen in season 4 to the plot or the characters.

However, we know you might see Ciri hanging with young adventurers, The Rats, as seen at the end of season 3. 

Additionally, if you really feel like spoiling season 4 for yourself, you can check out the Baptism of Fire book from Andrzej Sapkowski’s ‘The Witcher Series books,’ as season 4 is more likely to be based on it.

When Will The Witcher Season 4 Release On Netflix?

Unfortunately, the release date of both the trailer and the premier of season 4 has not been announced by The Witcher team.

However, The duration between seasons 1 to 2 and seasons 2 to 3 has been two years now as it takes shows like The Witcher a little more time with special effects.

Plus, the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike as of July 2023 has slowed down the process too. So, until streaming Networks and producers fulfill the people’s demands on strike, things can’t go any further.

If the script of The Witcher Season 4 had been completed before the WGA strike, Netflix might shorten some parts of Season 4 if the actors were not involved. However, these are just ifs and Buts are reliable in this matter.

The safest option would be to assume that the next season won’t be premiered for at least two years.
