We still don’t know what Liam Hemsworth will look (or sound) like when he takes up the role of Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher. But we do know how long he’ll be wearing the white wig: Netflix has confirmed that the show’s fifth season will be its last.

The news comes as Netflix has confirmed that it has started production on season 4 of The Witcher — the first that won’t feature Henry Cavill in the lead role — and that it and season 5 will be filmed back to back. The two upcoming seasons will “complete the adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s books,” according to Netflix. That means they will cover a trio of Witcher books: Baptism of Fire, The Tower of the Swallow, and Lady of the Lake.

Netflix first announced that Hemsworth would be taking over the role in 2022, and a fifth season was confirmed last year. Last summer’s season 3 of The Witcher thus ended up being a send-off for Cavill’s take on the character, which began in 2019. In addition to Hemsworth, season 4 will introduce new cast members including Laurence Fishburne.

Now, we wait to see what the new Geralt looks like in a wig.
