With the excitement of Vol-2 of The Witcher about to stream on Netflix, another fact of the series is out that’ll amaze fans. Since the third installment of the voluminous series is coming to an end, a fact about season 4 is humming in our ears. With the progress of season 4, the series will have delayed production and a delayed release. Let’s dive deep into this matter.
The Witcher Season 4 Delayed by a Year
There has been a slight change in the production in season 4. The original production for season 4 was supposed to be in 2023 September and 2024 mid but looks like that will not be the case. The filming of the series is not started yet. The exact reason for the delay is not known but since many series have been delayed due to the SAG-AFTRA strikes, this could be one of the reasons.
Looking upon all of this, the production might start in September 2024 or in 2025, but nothing is certain. But one fun fact about the villain in season 4 has been finalized. Sharlto Copley, a South African actor, has been chosen to join The Witcher franchise. Although his role has not been officially confirmed, there are indications that he may play the infamous Leo Bonhart, a villain known for his brutality throughout the saga.
Liam Hemsworth In The Witcher Season 4
The production designers Andrew Laws and Lucinda Wright seemed to be excited to confront Liam about the things that will be seen in The Witcher Season 4.
Andrew Laws began: “It’s a very exciting season. Liam’s been down to the studio, we’ve walked him through preliminary concept ideas for things. He’s very excited. He’s super enthusiastic. I think it’s gonna be a really great evolution for the show. I’ve met Liam briefly and he is six foot four and another beautiful specimen for a costume designer to showcase, so I’m very lucky. It’s very exciting as well because he’s going to bring something special.“- according to REDANIAN INTELLIGENCE
Laws teased more about the upcoming fourth season: “The big thing I can share is that in season four our world grows even more. So we begin to explore new parts of the Continent that will be familiar to the fans, but that we haven’t yet seen in our series. We’re exploring different location opportunities, both in the UK and outside the UK for different parts of the stories. We do know what our season is at this point. We do have scripts, so we are still advancing with what we’re doing in terms of pre-conception locations and concepts for sets, etc.“ REDANIAN INTELLIGENCE
