The latest reports suggest that Netflix is casting a new Witcher at the place of Henry Cavill for The Witcher Season 2. The question is, will Henry Cavill still be the Witcher or not?
Not to be surprised, but The Witcher Season 2 is currently at halt as the filming of every movie and show is halted right now. Still, in the midst of global crisis, Netflix and the creators are concentrating on the pre-production work, so once everything is back to normal, they can begin the filming with no further delay.
- Netflix to replace Henry Cavill in The Witcher Season 2?
- All the Witchers from the novel are already the part of the show.
- Joel Adrian will portray the new witcher Hemrik.
As a part of the process, Netflix is casting some of the new characters and re-casting some of the old characters. As per the latest reports, Netflix is looking for a new actor to play Witcher in the show. Does it mean Henry Cavill is saying goodbye to Witcher just after one season?
Well, we are not sure if Netflix is having second thoughts regarding Henry Cavill in The Witcher Season 2. But what we know is they have sent casting calls for an actor to play the role of Witcher.
Netflix to replace Henry Cavill in The Witcher Season 2?
Netflix’s The Witcher, which is based on the novel of same name by Andrzej Sapkowski, has received a great amount of love from audience for its first season.
The Game of Thrones like-look and feel, the fantasy world, the intense storyline, and Henry Cavill’s charm, made it a binge worthy show. Following the success of the first season of The Witcher, Netflix is working to bring the second season to the audience.
Though the release date is not yet fixed, and the production is also at halt, Netflix is busy in getting the canvas ready.
As per the recent rumours, Netflix is casting a new actor for the role of Witcher is Witcher Season 2. However, it’s not clear if Netflix is planning to replace Henry Cavill in The Witcher 2 with a new actor, or simply adding another Witcher in the story.
All the Witchers from the novel are already part of the show.
The news of Netflix casting a new actor to play a Witcher is surprising for one main reason. All the witchers, as per the novel, are already part of the show.
In the first season, Henry Cavill as Geralt, Freya Allan as Ciri and afterwards the casting of other witchers i.e. Vesemir (Kim Bodnia), Lambert (Paul Bullion), Coën (Yasen Atour) and Eskel (Thue Ersted Rasmussen). The show has borrowed all the witchers from the book.
Thus, the casting of another new actor to play Witcher in The Witcher Season 2 rasies the suspicion about Henry Cavill’s departure.
Joel Adrian will portray the new witcher Hemrik.
A report from Redanian Intelligence promises that Henry Cavill is staying as the lead of The Witcher.
The report suggests the casting is for a new witcher character. As per the report, the Season 2 will see a new witcher at Geralt’s home. The witcher is reportedly named Hemrik. The new witcher is going to be an original character, not a part of The Witcher novel by Andrzej Sapkowski. The report also suggests that the character will be portrayed by Joel Adrian.
As the first season of The Witcher follows a non-liner storytelling, it’s possible that the new character might be a part of the past timeline if not the present.
Whatever the new Witcher is going to contribute to the show, we are relieved to know that Netflix isn’t having second thoughts about Henry Cavill in The Witcher’s Season 2.
