A post shared by Henry Cavill (@henrycavill)

Cavill, who announced earlier this week that he would reprise his role as Superman, starred in the first three seasons of the drama series as the grim Geralt of Rivia, the bane of supernatural beasties. According to sources, Cavill signed a short-term contract with The Witcher and felt it was time to move on after three seasons on the show, which films in Europe and has a demanding production schedule. In addition to the Superman reboot, he already has film and television projects in the works, including the recently announced The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare. According to sources, Cavill’s Witcher co-stars renegotiated their contracts ahead of Season 4.

“My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures, and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for Season 4,” said Cavill in a statement. “In my stead, the fantastic Mr. Liam Hemsworth will be taking up the mantle of the White Wolf. As with the greatest of literary characters, I pass the torch with reverence for the time spent embodying Geralt and enthusiasm to see Liam’s take on this most fascinating and nuanced of men. Liam, good sir, this character has such a wonderful depth to him, enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find.”
