According to recent rumors, Netflix is apparently very happy with The Witcher series and just might greenlight multiple seasons.
The report came from Geeks Worldwide editor in chief KC Walsh who has had a history of providing reliable inside information, particularly with the DC Extended Universe. According to Walsh, Netflix is very happy with how the first season is turning out and speculates that the show could see a multiple season renewal before the first even airs or right after it. Furthermore, this could be an additional sight of Henry Cavill leaving the Superman role as such a commitment would take up a great deal of the actors time.
Walsh’s full Tweet where he reported the information can be seen below as can an amusing gif from the video game, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt:
Sounds like @Netflix is very happy with #TheWitcher and we could see multiple seasons greenlit before season one airs or shortly after. Meaning Cavill’s schedule could be full for a while and more evidence Superman is behind him pic.twitter.com/DSnFjhAjrF

If this report is to be believed, it seems like Henry Cavill will be taking the mantle of The White Wolf for several years to come.
Earlier this year, Henry Cavill was rumored to be in the running for Geralt of Rivia for the Netflix Witcher series. These rumors turned out to be true but not long after it was reported that Cavill was out as Superman. No one at Warner Bros. has confirmed this but the number of stories that the actor is out as the character has only increased as no movement seems to have been made towards green-lighting another Superman film. And if Netflix were to renew the show for multiple seasons, this will make his return to the role all the more unlikely.
