Showrunner teases that Netflix’s The Witcher won’t have an absolute villain. Meanwhile, a new trailer will be released this Halloween.
Showrunner, Lauren Hissrich, said that the upcoming fantasy TV series won’t really have a villain. According to Showbiz Cheat Sheet, the show has characters with lots of grey areas that the audience will find it hard to determine which of them will they support.
Hissrich shared that they actually enjoyed exploring the grey areas in the story. She added that fan’s allegiance might shift a lot and will find themselves having empathy for the characters they did not expect to have.
These multidimensional personas might remind fans of Game of Thrones which also featured complex stories and plots surrounding every character. Although both series are fantasy, it would not be right to compare them with one another since each of them has unique characteristics that make them memorable to their fans.
Netflix’s The Witcher will feature Henry Cavil who portrays the lead character, Geralt of Rivia who is always on the run to chase and hunt monsters. Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan join him as Yennefer of Vengerburg and Ciri who are both integral characters in the series.
The show is based on the book written by the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski and will have eight episodes for the first season. This is not unusual since there are other series in history that started off with few episodes in the first season and expanded in the following installments.
On another note, fans who are waiting for the release of the series are still kept in the dark as of this day. However, it seemed like the wait is almost over since there is a rumor that the series will be released by the streaming giant on December 17th. This is based on something that Netflix posted and then deleted sometime in September.
Meanwhile, the official Instagram and Twitter account of the show shared a teaser video that an upcoming trailer will be released this Halloween. The video which was posted on Instagram was paired up with a caption written in an old-fashion style which says: Oh follower, oh followers/ We have returned to warn: Don’t let the darkness swallow you, for a trailer comes at morn.
Netflix’s The Witcher seemed to be telling fans that more of the story will be revealed after watching the upcoming trailer. Well, sit tight folks and wait for the morrow to come.
