Two small script excerpts linked to the in-development Witcher Netflix show have leaked, and have been verified as authentic. The scenes were posted on . One is between Yennefer and Geralt, as they prepare for a sorceress ball Geralt really doesn't want to go to, and the other is between Yennefer and a nameless King whose reign she's propping up but who repulses her. The scenes were verified authentic by the series showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich, who told fans not to worry, she'd seen the leaks coming, which is why the excerpts were written for casting purposes only and will not be in the final show. "It happened. As we knew it would. Don't worry. All is okay in the Witcher world," .
Two casting scripts for the upcoming Netflix adaptation of The Witcher have been leaked. The two brief excerpts, which were leaked via the franchise’s subreddit, focus primarily on Yennefer of Vengerberg, a sorceress who’s one of main character Geralt’s major love interests in both the Witcher games and novels.
It’s important to note from the outset that these scripts are solely for casting purposes, and, as showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich pointed out on Twitter, “they are not real scenes or scenarios or even storylines from the show.” Hissrich also stated that the production team had been expecting the scripts to leak.
Despite Hissrich’s statement, however, it’s likely that we’ll see some similarities between what we can see in the scripts, and what will eventually air. One scene sees Geralt and Yennefer bicker as the latter attempts to prepare the Witcher for a ball, which is a concept I definitely recognise from the games. The second sees Yennefer in an argument with an unnamed king, which also doesn’t stray all that far from the source material.

This may be the first time Emma Stone and Jonah Hill are teaming up since their breakout in 2007's Superbad, but Maniac could not be more different as this series from Netflix and True Detective director Cary Fukunaga looks like one hell of a trip into the human mind.
Henry Cavill is the modern-day Superman and a jerkish American in the latest Mission Impossible, but he has a new role on the mind: Geralt of Rivia. The topic of The Witcher came up in a recent promotional interview with the actor, and he’s got a great appreciation for the franchise - one that means he’d love the titular role of the Witcher in the new Netflix series.
Cavill says “I just replayed [The Witcher 3] all the way through. Love that game. Really good game.” That leads to a question about whether the actor would like to play Geralt in the Netflix series, and Cavill says “Absolutely, yeah, that’d be an amazing role.”
If you're going to spend the hours, spend them in the.
You might be able to dismiss that as just interview small talk, but Cavill turns things around, asking the interviewer if he’s read the books. “The books are amazing. The books are really, really good.” As Cavill notes, the Netflix series will be a “little bit of both. They’re picking a bit from the game and a bit from the book - a lot from the books. But the books, I started reading and they are well worth the read.”
So clearly Cavill’s been keeping up with the development of , which we know back in June - maybe it’s all research for a potential new role. You can hear Cavill’s full comments in the interview below.
