Netflx have also dropped a feature on Tudum which offers insight into the show’s direction for Season 4:

After the shocking, Continent-altering events that close out Season 3, the new season follows Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri, who are separated and traversing the war-ravaged Continent and its many demons. If they can embrace and lead the groups of misfits they find themselves in, they have a chance of surviving the baptism of fire — and finding one another again.

Tudum also confirms a guest cast members including Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix), Sharlto Copley (District 9), James Purefoy (The Following) and Danny Woodburn (Watchmen).

Seasons 4 and 5 are adapting the remaining three books in saga by Andrzej Sapkowski – Baptism of Fire, The Tower of the Swallow and Lady of the Lake.

Writer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said:

“It is with huge pride that we begin shooting our penultimate Season of The Witcher with a stellar cast, including some exciting new additions, led by Liam Hemsworth as Geralt of Rivia. We’re thrilled to be able to bring Andrzej Sapkowski’s books to an epic and satisfying conclusion. It wouldn’t be our show if we didn’t push our family of characters to their absolute limit — stay tuned to see how the story ends.”

The Witcher is currently in production in the UK. We’ll keep you posted.
