Season Four Description

Fishburne will join the returning cast of Anya ChalotraFreya Allan, and Joey Batey in season four. The official description paints a bleak but entertaining next season: 

“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.
