As a result, this casting in 2022 wasn’t a complete surprise because, at the time, they had also been interested in Hemsworth for the part. In the end, they preferred Henry Cavill more. We’re informed that this indicates there wasn’t a lengthy casting procedure this time.
After re-watching the old Geralt casting footage, the producers chose Liam Hemsworth from the top candidates. All of this was completed around the second half of summer 2022 while The Witcher: Season 3 was still being made.
A side note: There were rumours that Sebastian Stan was the favourite to play Geralt in 2018; however, neither the stories nor any comments on them ever materialized. The Witcher Season 4 won’t begin filming until roughly the second half of 2023. Thus the release date may revert to the customary December time slot in 2024. A new Geralt of Rivia will have about two years to win over fans.
