Though the cameras have yet to kick off rolling on Season 4 of The Witcher (probably most famous… or infamous, depending on your point of view for recasting main role Geralt of Rivia with Liam Hemsworth), we know more about who will be on screen alongside the lead. Sharlto Copley, James Purefoy and Danny Woodburn have all joined the cast.

Here are the pertinent character details… Copley will play the infamous bounty hunter Leo Bonhart from the Witcher novels. Purefoy will play Skellen, a high-ranking spy and court advisor who is also a prominent figure in the novels. Woodburn will play Zoltan, a dwarf character from the novels and games.

The series will still be lead by Hemsworth's Geralt, starring alongside Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, Joey Batey and Laurence Fishburne. And should you need the official synopsis for your reading needs: "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."

With shooting gearing up shortly, we wouldn't expect the show to return before next year, but at least the cast will feature some fun additions.
