“I hate Netflix for this”: The Witcher Writer Reveals Upsetting Details On The Netflix Show After Henry Cavill’s Exit


Henry Cavill’s role of Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s The Witcher is now one of the most famous characters that he has ever portrayed. However, the actor left the show allegedly due to creative differences after season 3. While the actor never revealed the real reason for his exit, it was rumored that the show not being real to the original source material was his last straw.

And now after these rumors, even the author of the novels, Andrzej Sapkowski has revealed upsetting details regarding the Netflix show, claiming the studio completely ignores his suggestions even though he is the creator. This revelation was enough for fans to bash Netflix brutally on social media.

Henry Cavill is a big fan of the fantasy genre and video games and was already aware of The Witcher universe when he starred as Geralt of Rivia. However, he soon walked away which many claimed was because of the show not been faithful to the original source material.

And now The Witcher creator’s recent comments about the show only seem to have confirmed these rumors. Recently at the Vienna Comic Con, Andrzej Sapkowski while speaking to the Cerealkillerz was asked whether he had any suggestions for the Netflix series when he visited them. The author remarked,

“Well the set was tremendous, it was so wow, everything. But no, maybe I gave them some ideas, but they never listen to me. They never listen to me, but it’s normal, ‘Who’s this? It’s the writer, it’s nobody.’”

Even earlier this when the author was asked how he felt about the show at the Taipei International Book Exhibition in Taiwan, he had commented (via CBR),

 “I’ve seen better. I’ve seen worse.” 

His comments have angered many fans of the franchise, who took no time to start bashing Netflix online.

While it is not the first time that on-screen adaptions have walked away from the original source material, it remains just as shocking as the first time seeing the immense hatred some of these projects receive from the fans. Similarly, with The Witcher series, the faithful fans of the franchise were deeply distressed when the show decided to present its own take on the mythos instead of staying true to the novels like fans wanted.

Many even declared it unwatchable after Cavill’s exit for they alleged he was the only best part of the show. And now after Andrzej Sapkowski’s disclosure of Netflix’s ignoring his suggestions has further led fans to criticize the studio for being inconsiderate.

Well, seems like fans are apparently done with the show, and with Cavill no longer in the picture, only time will tell how things fare for the show in the future.

The Witcher can be streamed on Netflix.
