Netflix's The Witcher faced uncertainty when it was announced that Henry Cavill would be leaving his role as Geralt of Rivia. However, the addition of Laurence Fishburne to the cast has brought new hope to the show. Fishburne will play the character of Regis, a powerful higher vampire who forms a strong bond with Geralt. 

While Cavill's departure is disappointing, Fishburne's portrayal of Regis has the potential to breathe new life into the series. In Andrzej Sapkowski's novels, Regis is depicted as highly intelligent and knowledgeable, with a refined demeanor. He is also a recovering addict. Fishburne's acting skills make him a great fit for the role.

 Overall, Fishburne's addition to the cast is a positive development for The Witcher fans and comes at a crucial moment for the series.
