In the fantasy series on Netflix, Cavill plays Geralt of Rivia, the titular witcher and a magically augmented monster hunter whose fate is linked to that of Princess Cirilla.
Although the precise reason for Cavill’s departure is unclear, many think it has something to do with his comeback as Superman in the DC Extended Universe.
