    Is Netflix ‘The Witcher’ Changing Ciri Character After Controversial Henry Cavill Exit?

    Netflix’s ‘Witcher’ started out with a huge fanbase, eye-pleasing cinematography, and the talented Henry Cavill as the Geralt of Rivia. Slowly as the series reached season 3, it witnessed a drop in viewership as the series got diverted from the source material. Along with that Henry Cavill’s portrayal of the warrior also waved a white flag, with Liam Hemsworth taking over the mantle of Geralt of Rivia.

    According to various sources, Henry Cavill left ‘The Witcher’ due to creative differences. The writers of the show were deviating from the source material. While the producer blamed the American audience the reason for making the show the simpler version of its novels. Amidst the controversy of Henry Cavill’s exit, it is believed that Ciri might get a darker story arc.

    Ciri will undergo a Dark Change in Season Four


    Unlike other characters, Ciri played by Freya Allan has always been championing right over wrong and often demonstrated mercy when others choose to be ruthless. However, at the end of season three, Ciri joined a bandit group called The Rats. Although they are not completely bad, but borderline villainous. According to the source material that is Andrzej Sapkowski’s novel The Rats as depicted as murderers who rob not just to survive, but because they revel in the lavishness of their ill-gotten gains.

    Audiences will see the darker side of Ciri henceforth from season four. Taking lessons from ‘Games of Thrones’ infamous Daenerys Targaryen ending twist, ‘The Witcher’ should be careful to deliver Ciri’s new arc as her personality switch will be highlighted. If anything goes south, Ciri’s newly shown personality might become a point of controversy.

    Will Henry Cavill’s exit make Ciri’s change difficult for Season 4?

    With Henry Cavill being replaced by Liam Hemsworth and Freya Allan’s Siri, the only original trio member of ‘The Witcher’ left behind is Yennefer. Without the other two, ‘The Witcher’ is only risking getting caught in controversies. The fans will face a hard time accepting Liam Hemsworth Geralt and Freya Allan’s Falka.

    According to the source material,  Ciri joining the Rats in ‘The Witcher’ season 4 is a storyline that could potentially succeed as the writer might be back on track with the original material. With these immediate and unexpected changes, ‘The Witcher’ is giving the audience a tough time digesting the major character’s chance in just one gulp.
