Praising the Justice League star, Hissrich said, “Henry has given so much to the show, and so we want to honor that appropriately.” She then described how season 3 is highly based on Time of Contempt, the fourth book in The Witcher book series.

“Obviously, we can’t do every page, but Time of Contempt gave us so many big action events, plot points, defining character moments, and huge reveals of a big bad,” Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said.

She explained that Geralt will do anything to save Ciri in the upcoming season. “And it’s the most heroic sendoff that we could have,” Hissrich said.

The television producer also revealed that Geralt in season 4 will be slightly different from the earlier seasons, which could serve as the perfect opportunity to introduce Liam Hemsworth as the new Geralt of Rivia.
