We have known for a long time that Henry Cavill is an enthusiast of Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels and CD Projekt RED games. In the last interview, the actor revealed his expectations regarding the new season of “The Witcher” and compliance with the content of the original stories.
The premiere of the second season of “The Witcher” clearly confirmed the plans of the SVOD platform, whose creators are not afraid of introducing many changes and refreshing the events originally developed by Andrzej Sapkowski. The screenwriters are based on the world created by a Polish writer.
The strategy adopted by the team led by Lauren S. Hissrich does not necessarily suit a certain group of viewers who sign the petition to fire the showrunner . Henry Cavill also referred to the subject of drawing from the original. The actor who plays Geralt talked about the production in the Netflix Geeked Christmas program and emphasized that in his opinion the upcoming story should explore the witcher’s relationship with Nenneke.
Cavill admitted that he wanted to remain faithful to the books, so he would not like to introduce too many changes or interfering with the prototype in the following episodes.
“To be true to the books, I think there’s a chance to explore the Nenneke relationship a little further,” Cavill says. “Of course, I would love to work with the Witchers some more, but it all depends on how much the story allows. I’m a huge fan of the books and staying loyal to them, and it’s about making sure that story happens without too much in the way of diversions or side things going on to muddy the waters.”
The actor also mentioned the Butcher’s relationship with Blaviken with Yennefer and stated that her actions in the new series were “quite extreme”, so improving the relationship between his character and the sorceress will require “real work”. It’s a complex process.
