The Witcher Season 3: An Unexpected Show Took The Netflix #1 Spot From Vol 2

This story contains spoilers for "The Witcher" Season 3


"The Witcher" Season 3 was Henry Cavill's final appearance as Geralt. The finale premiered on July 27, 2023, and marked the end of Cavill’s iconic portrayal.

Only a week after the release of Season 3's second volume, "The Witcher" lost its #1 spot on Netflix's Top 10 to "Sweet Magnolias," a smaller and cheaper show.

Notably, this season of "The Witcher" holds the lowest fan ratings in the series, further intensifying concerns for its future success.

Cavill’s portrayal of Geralt was one of the most critically lauded aspects of the show since it premiered. His exit casts doubts over the show’s continued popularity.

Liam Hemsworth will replace Cavill as Geralt, and the show's creative team has hinted that Geralt’s change in appearance will be addressed on-screen.
