Fans are still mourning Henry Cavill and his Geralt of Rivia

The writers mocked the source material and deviated widely from the original plot, and The Tudors actor didn’t like it at all, which is allegedly the reason for Cavill’s exit. Meanwhile, the showrunner hasn’t revealed the reason for the departure of the Man of Steel actor. But fans have their ways of speculating and connecting the dots. Now that The Witcher: Blood Origins released, they are now not happy to see it. Some of them even don’t want to watch the series as a revolt against the show makers.

Others are just sad for their Geralt as they will not see the same face from the fourth season of The Witcher. Fans even say that when you don’t follow the books/games and follow whatever is important for the series, it ruins the franchise.

Fans are insisting on following the original books and source materials to keep the authenticity of the plot. Because they haven’t followed it in the prequel, they didn’t like it.

This one didn’t like the writing nor did he like the characters. All over, he didn’t like the show and remembered the Witcher who had left the show.
