The Witcher will end after Season 5, Netflix announced today.

The streamer revealed a sneak peek of a cast get-together from a recent table read, sharing that Season 4 is officially in production with actor Liam Hemsworth taking over as Geralt of Rivia for the remaining 2 seasons.

Seasons 4 and 5 will film back-to-back, marking the final chapter in Geralt’s story, with storylines adapted from the remaining of Sapkowski’s books, Baptism of Fire, The Tower of the Swallow and Lady of the Lake, with Netflix promising an epic and satisfying conclusion to the fantasy drama.

Season 4 picks up after the shocking, continent-altering events that closed out season three, and sees Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri faced with traversing the war-ravaged Continent and its many demons apart from each other. 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.

Creator/Showrunner/Executive Producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said in a statement “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.”
