While Netflix’s ‘The Witcher‘ will inhabit a dark and serious world, don’t expect it to not have moments of humor as well. Anya Chalotra who plays Yennefer in the upcoming series based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s books did a recent interview to explain how the darkness will be balanced out by the light.

Specifically, she was asked if the balance from the trailer shown at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 was a good representation of what we can expect from the series when it debuts:
“I think so. Yeah, absolutely. I think it is a serious show and I think it is dark and I think it’s full of heart, but there are some hilarious characters in it. I mean, Dandelion. Not Dandelion, Jaskier. My God. Jaskier. Yeah, he’s so hilarious and the relationship that he has with Geralt, but also Yennefer. Full of wit and she has some dark times but always manages to not take herself too seriously.”
Many of the darker shows these days have had humor or lighter moments to temper it out and give a better connection to the characters and ‘The Witcher’ seems to be continuing this tradition. Very few people want something which is entirely dark, so this seems to be a wise choice by the writers.
