Witcher TV Series Writer Talks Fan Criticism

Witcher TV Series Writer Talks Fan Criticism

Practically since day one, The Witcher Netflix series has been under fire, as diehard fans want this adaptation to be given proper justice. Just recently, the reveal of the casting call for Ciri was so controversial that it inspired a game mod. Nevertheless, the major cast reveal had a mostly positive reception, with the exception of Yennefer.

Nevertheless, this controversy inspired a question as to how The Witcher showrunner Lauren Hissrich deals with the hateful remarks she has received over the show. In a response spanning several tweets, Hissrich talked about dealing with the criticism, seemingly focusing on the positive aspects of her journey instead of the negative.

In fact, two key remarks are that “it’s not all hate” and “real fans don’t make threats over a piece of news.” She also went on to say that nothing could take the excitement for the show from her or any fan. Check it out below:

It’s worth mentioning that the full cast for the major characters has been revealed and includes Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Ciri, Millie Brady as Princess Renfri, MyAnna Buring as Tissasia, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Mimi Ndiweni as Fringilla, and Therica Wilson-Reed as Sabrina.

Currently, it is unknown when this series will launch, but many speculate it will be around 2019 or 2020. By then, hopefully, the royalties conflict between CD Projekt Red and The Witcher author will be resolved, so many fans can solely focus on the Netflix series.

Regardless, it seems possible it could launch alongside CD Projekt Red’s latest project, Cyberpunk 2077, as there has been plenty of hints that the game could possibly launch as early as 2019. Until an official announcement comes, however, fans should take that information with a grain of salt

The Witcher 3 is now available for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, while the Netflix adaptation is currently in development.
