The Witcher Crossover Event

The Witcher, the Netflix show based on a series of novels that also inspired a smash hit video game franchise, has become a big hit. People seem to genuinely dig the show, and sure, most of them are probably watching to ogle Henry Cavill, but that counts, too, damn it.

So you better think up a better wish, fast. And no wishing for more wishes, that’s cheating.

the witcher season 2 filming

The Witcher was one of Netflix’s biggest hits when it debuted its first season back in December 2019.

And as The Witcher season 2 finally wraps, overcoming a COVID-restricted production, showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich teases more storylines from Sapkowski’s novels to come.

the witcher bloopers

It turns out one of the most precious treasures on the Continent is Geralt of Rivia’s smile. So it’s a little unnerving to see Henry Cavill flashing those pearly whites so often in the blooper reel for The Witcher, which Netflix released this week. But, having been deprived of Geralt’s smile for so long (do we actually ever see him smile, or do anything more than smirk?) it’s like rain after a drought. Watch The Witcher bloopers below.
