Lauren S Hissrich The Witcher

We all unfortunately know that fandom can be far too vocal with negative comments when they don’t feel that what they love is being treated right and showrunner of ‘The WitcherLauren S. Hissrich is sharing how she deals with the problem. The upcoming Netflix series has already felt its fair share of annoyed fans when it has come to casting, such as Anya Chalotra recently getting the role of Yennefer to even Henry Cavill in the leading role of Geralt of Rivia.

The line of conversation all started when a fan asked about negative feedback:

Hissrich gave a fantastic response when she has shared what things are actually like on the receiving end of these and more positive tweets:


With how much hate can be out there and how visible it is, I’m thrilled that when it comes to ‘The Witcher’ that there is just as much positive feedback coming in as the negative. While I’m looking forward to seeing what Hissrich puts together, we all know that not every film or franchise will be universally liked and these days that means online trolls. On the flip side, those who don’t enjoy new takes on pre-existing works also don’t need to spend all of their time writing hate-filled messages about it. It is one thing to not like something and entirely something else to spread non-stop vile about it.
