Why Is Henry Cavill Exiting The Witcher?

Although Cavill didn’t provide any reason for his exit, fans speculate that it is due to the DCEU’s involvement. His return as Superman was recently confirmed after the release of Black Adam where he also had a small cameo.

Fans don’t have to bid farewell to the star yet. The Geralt of Rivia will be seen fighting the monsters one more time with Season 3 which is slated to release in Summer 2023. However, Netflix hasn’t yet announced any official release date for the forthcoming season.

Although details of Season 3 are scarce, it is believed that the season will predominately adapt events and characters from Sapkowski’s novel, titled Time Of Contempt. It is the second novel in the core Witcher saga and the fourth book in the series overall.
