When Netflix started filming The Witcher, Andrzej Sapkowski was on the payroll as a consultant. Formally, he had access to the scripts, could follow the progress of the work, even went to a foreign set. But from the beginning, he gave the creators of the adaptation a free hand and "did not want to judge the soup by its ingredients" - reminds wp. pl website.
The second season of "The Witcher" was released on Netflix on December 17. What does Andrzej Sapkowski himself think about it?
“I congratulate Lauren and her team on their excellent work. Adapting my books is not an easy task. I watched with great joy, and I hope for an even more epic season 3,” said the author of the bestseller.
Lauren S. Hissrich, the showrunner of the series, wrote about that on her profile on Instagram.
She is the one behind the vision of "The Witcher" brought to the screens and leads the group of screenwriters who do not create a faithful screen adaptation.
“To have his approval on our adaptation – it’s everything. So proud of the work this team has done. The boss is happy; we're all happy,” wrote Hissrich.
