Veteran actor Laurence Fishburne has joined the cast of Netflix’s acclaimed series ‘The Witcher’ for season 4.

Fishburne joins as Regis, a fan favourite from the Witcher books and games. Regis – introduced in Sapkowski’s novel Baptism of Fire – is a world-wise Barber-surgeon with a mysterious past who joins Geralt on his journey in Season 4.

On his casting, Fishburne said, “I’m very excited to be joining the cast and look forward to exploring the wondrous world of The Witcher.”

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.

Fishburne joins Liam Hemsworth, Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan and Joey Batey in the highly anticipated 4th Season of the globally renowned, award-winning show which will return to production this Spring.
