He joins the cast following Henry Cavill’s departure from the series.

Netflix’s ‘The Witcher’ is set to expand with a new addition to its cast. As reported by Collider, Laurence Fishburne of ‘The Matrix’ and ‘John Wick’ was announced as the latest star to join the series.

Fishburne will be portraying the character Regis in the show’s upcoming fourth season. Regarding his new role, he expressed his enthusiasm, stating:

“I’m very excited to be joining the cast and look forward to exploring the wondrous world of ‘The Witcher.'”

Regis is a knowledgeable barber-surgeon with a complex background and is a beloved character from ‘The Witcher’ books and games. Apparently, he will be included in Season 4 with his storyline.

Latest Updates About The Witcher Season 4

Fishburne’s casting news comes in the wake of Henry Cavill’s departure from the series, where he played the lead role of Geralt of Rivia. Cavill’s exit, which stirred up discussion among the fanbase, makes way for Liam Hemsworth to star as Geralt starting in the fourth season.

Speculation about creative differences from the source material surrounded the series, especially following Cavill’s departure. These developments have led to mixed reactions from fans and critics, who have been vocal about the show’s adherence to Sapkowski’s original work.

Alongside Hemsworth, the season will feature returning actors Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, and Joey Batey. The fourth season is anticipated to pick up after the events of the third season, and the official description is as follows:

“After the shocking, Continent-altering events that close out season three, the new season follows Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri, who are 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.”

Speculation about the release date of Season 4 continues, with predictions pointing towards 2025. Besides, it’s known the new season’s production will begin this spring.

In addition to ‘The Witcher,’ Fishburne is involved in several upcoming projects, including ‘Slingshot,’ ‘Transformers One,’ ‘Amateur,’ ‘Megalopolis,’ ‘Cellar Door,’ ‘The Astronaut,’ ‘Frank & Louis,’ ‘The Little Bedroom,’ ‘Blacksmith,’ ‘Rendlesham,’ and ‘Sneaks.’
