Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich has just shared some important details on the layout of the first season of Netflix’s ‘The Witcher’! As the show is based upon the novels, there is one change coming, which should be a positive one for fans. Prior to meeting Geralt, we didn’t really get a chance to know Yennefer and Ciri which won’t be the case in the new series. Both of these women are going to have their stories more fleshed out when they meet Henry Cavill’s character as they’ll be just as important to the plot as he is.
According to Hissrich:
“You know, I think we can expect a little bit of everything honestly. The show is obviously based on the books by Andrzej Sapkowski, but what’s really fun is that we actually get to expand upon the books, we get to read between the lines, we get to really dig into the character moments and let them breathe a little bit more in ways that, specifically with both Yennefer and Ciri that weren’t necessarily present before they met Geralt. We dig in, and we get to learn about them and create fully formed characters before they start intersecting with one another and changing.”
This should give audiences a chance to better know both Anya Chalotra’s Yennefer and Freya Allan’s Ciri, so it doesn’t feel that they are secondary characters.

Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family.
