There’s more monster hunting on the horizon.

The Witcher–the Netflix horror-fantasy series that’s heading into ts third season in a month–has a lot more life left in it, according to a report on Deadline.

Casting director Sophie Holland this week said the show has been renewed for a fifth season, with Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games franchise) taking over for star Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia starting with Season 4.

Holland added that Season 5 will be filmed back-to-back with the fourth season. “We’re just about to start filming Season 4 with Liam,” she said, “and then there will be a short gap–then we go straight into Season 5.”

But, before all that happens, the show’s third season–the last with Cavill–will air on Netflix in two parts–starting with a five-episode Volume 1 June 29, and continuing with a three-episode Volume 2 on July 27.

The first two seasons of the show–created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich–relate the story of the intertwined destinies of Geralt, Ciri (Freya Allan) and Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) in the world of The Continent–where elves, gnomes, monsters and Witchers battle to survive.
