After becoming famous as Superman, Henry Cavill will bring Geralt of Rivia to life in The Witcher series. Netflix has already released two trailers for the anticipated show, and many fans are looking forward to the release, which is scheduled to take place in December 2019.
According to a reliable source, Netflix is so pleased by the fan feedback that it could approve the production of several seasons after the first one will be available. Select reports argue that season two is already in the making since Henry Cavill has some spare time to due to a dispute between DC and Warner Bros.
From Superman to Witcher
Henry Cavill has stated that he is a die-hard fan of the Witcher franchise, as he read all the books and played all the games that were released. When Netflix announced that it would produce a show based on the iconic series Cavill started a campaign to play Geralt of Rivia.
The actor enjoyed a large amount of praise for his previous works, with many critics arguing that his potential as a fresh take on Superman was wasted in Batman VS Superman. It is clear that he thrives as Geralt and loves the role.
There are other rumors which claim that several seasons could be recorded. The showrunner for the series has stated during a recent interview that there is enough material for seven seasons.
Those who are familiar with the books or the games will know that moral ambiguity plays a major role in the Witcher universe. Geralt will not be a lovable hero at first since the series will show him as a young Witcher who cares more about money instead of helping those in need.
It is important to note that the series is based on the novel written by Andrzej Sapkowski, and the action takes place before the video games trilogy.
