Lauren Hissrich Reveals In A Reddit Chat Plans For LGBTQ Representation In The Witcher


Our newest TV obsession, The Witcher will in all probability get more interesting in its second season. In 2020 a TV series cannot stand only on Henry Cavill’s six pack abs and deep voice, no matter how amazing they are, it needs substance, matter and connectivity. The Witcher seems to have all three in abundance. The first two the series already had in abundance as witnessed by the smashing response it has received due to being backed by the amazing series written by Andrzej Sapkowski. But it will take huge strides in the third department of connectivity even after being set in a completely different universe at least according to EP Lauren S. Hissrich.

Hissrich recently hopped on Reddit, yes Reddit!! To chat with fans. She talked about everything regarding the riveting series – from the fate of the Northern Kingdoms to what lies ahead for Henry Cavill’s Geralt. But the most important piece of information in this whole conversation came when on the query of a fan Hissrich responded affirmatively that there will be more representation in the second season. Considering the social and political environment of the world at this moment it is of paramount importance that artists and creators do their best to promote and discuss important issues like diversity and representation. A huge example was set by Hank Azaria recently when he left his voice role of many years as Apu because of issues from Asian communities, even though it made all of the fandom sad. I mean can anyone imagine Apu without Hank’s voice.

The fact that the show will expand its array of representation and introduce more LGBTQ characters in the mix makes an already amazing series more captivating. Netflix also seems to be confident about the series as it has already renewed it for a second season and speculations are rife that a third season has already been greenlit. It is a good news for everyone especially Hissrich who announced previously that she already has a seven season arc.

The Witcher is an American fantasy drama series produced by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. The first season, consisting of eight episodes, was released on Netflix in its entirety on December 20, 2019.
