Anyway, I love the show, I like Henry Cavill as Geralt, I also like the other actors, the setting and how gritty everything feels. I hope Netflix and the Actors keep on with it and make as much of it as possible.
Sorry, I can’t read many of the comments due to some weird glitch, but I saw some of the written texts it in the Notifications. I know that Cavill wanted the Role. But don’t assume he just wanted it because he is a fan. He is a fan, but he and his agent most likely also guessed the show would skyrocket (…like it did). With rising popularity also comes more money. Don’t assume he will take hefty cuts in his pay just to keep the show alive forever. At some point Netflix will have to make money out of this while being able to pay all the actors with their growing popularity. And for now I don’t see how they will make that much money off the show.
Look, I really hope they make the seven seasons, at least. And I also hope they make 10–12 episode seasons with better pacing, deeper plot and all the bells and whistles. I just don’t see where the money for that comes from. GoT was a whole different story in terms of monetization, Netflix can’t do the same.
Also, think about the other actors: Hell, do you think someone as loved as Joey Batey, the perfect sidekick for our grumpy Geralt, won’t negotiate a higher salary? They can’t get rid of him, the duo Geralt-Jaskier is already perfect for the show. I like Henry Cavill, and he appears like a genuine and nice guy. But he is in his prime now and top priority is most probably to make as much $$$ as possible during this period of his life. So, if Netflix won’t pay him the bare minimum he wants and he gets the offer to play the next Superhero for a gazillion Dollars more he will most likely quit playing Geralt. Also, quitting the show wouldn’t fall back on Cavill. Netflix already built a negative reputation for cancelling popular shows. He could just quit and let Netflix receive the blame.

Overall, for all the fanfare, The Witcher has been a disappointment. The writing staff have somewhat inexplicably modified many of the best moments in the short stories and added their own side stories that go nowhere.
A shining light in this series has been the majority of the main cast with a special nod to Anya Chalotra’s Yennefer and honorable mentions to Henry Cavill, Joey Batey, Freya Allan, Royce Pierreson and Jodhi May.
