“The Witcher” Season 2 may have only been on Netflix for a few weeks, but Season 3 is already in the works.
In an interview with Digital Spy, the show’s producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich spoke about whether the show would feature any more queer characters saying, “Absolutely. What I think is really great is season three, which is taken from the book Time of Contempt, which we’re in the process of writing. So I will not spoil that much for you. But I do think it’s a season that starts to delve more into relations, and just sort of talking about how relationships can be different. We have Phillipa, who’s best known… I would say she’s a queer icon for book readers. We delve into her character. It’s not something we shy away from. I also think with Ciri, that’s something that I would say is hinted at in the books, but you never really get into what is her sexuality, and we start to delve into that more as well.”
Ciri is the adopted daughter figure of the show’s lead character, Geralt, and Philippa is a rogue sorceress who is advisor to the king of Redania.
