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.
He was my first meeting. I didn't have writers or scripts yet – just a greenlight and a lot of passion. That was four months ago, and I've never forgotten the passion he brought. He IS Geralt. He always has been. I'm so thrilled to welcome HENRY CAVILL to the #Witcher family.Lauren S. Hissrich (@LHissrich) September 4, 2018
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.
