The author of The Witcher gives his opinion on the Netflix series, although it does not seem to exude enthusiasm

In recent months, much has been said about the The Witcher series of Netflix. The production works quite well for the platform and in general it has not received very negative criticism, but there is a controversy surrounding how the writers adapt the events of the books that has been accentuated with the announcement of the departure of Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia.

The British actor has ended his relationship with the series and everything seems to indicate that it is due to creative disagreements for not being too faithful to the original story, something that makes us think about what he will think Andrzej Sapkowski, the original author of the work. This is precisely why he was asked at the 2023 Taipei International Book Exhibition.

“I’ve seen them better and I’ve seen them worse,” he says

In very concise statements collected by Espinofthe Polish writer does not seem to be very enthusiastic, but he does not want to get too wet either. “I’ve seen better and I’ve seen worse”, Sapkowski has commented, who has not wanted to say much more about it. Let’s remember that he has an agreement with Netflix for the adaptation of his work, which not only has the main series in its catalogue, but has also produced an animated film called The Witcher: The Wolf’s Nightmare and a spin-off called The Witcher: Origin of Blood.

The third season is coming this year.

Beyond all the controversy or debate around the series, fans of The Witcher can expect the third season this year. As confirmed by those responsible, the new episodes will be available during the summerAlthough we have to wait to find out a more specific release date for the platform.


In this third season we will attend Henry Cavill’s heroic farewell in the lead role, because you have to remember that from the fourth season will be Liam Hemsworth the new Geralt. Those responsible for the series themselves do not stop insisting that the story will be more faithful to the books in the new chapters, so we have to wait to see how the events already exposed in the first two seasons continue.
