Henry Cavill Has Been Cast as Geralt in The Witcher Netflix Show

No funny tache this time, please.

There's been speculation about it for quite some time, but now it's finally been confirmed: Henry Cavill has been cast as Geralt in Netflix's Witcher series.

The announcement comes from Lauren S. Hissrich on Twitter, the lead writer for the project. Previously, Hissrich revealed that the script for the final episode of the show was underway, late last month in August.

This should ultimately come as no surprise, given that Cavill is actually a pretty massive fan of The Witcher 3. "Absolutely. Yeah, that would be an amazing role," Cavill stated earlier this year, when asked by IGN if he would like to be a part of the Netflix series.

As of right now, The Witcher series on Netflix has no release date, or even a release window. We'll keep an ear out for all additional news about the show, and report back as soon as we hear anything.

If you're in the same boat as Cavill, and still playing The Witcher 3 years after release, then we've got some handy guides for you. Check out our Witcher 3 secrets guide, where we've compiled all the biggest mysteries from within the game.

Staff Writer

Hirun Cryer is by far the most juvenile member of USgamer. He's so juvenile, that this is his first full-time job in the industry, unlike literally every other person featured on this page. He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
