A few months ago, the showrunner from “The Witcher” signed a long-term contract with the Netflix platform, which indicates a successful cooperation and satisfaction with the results of her work on the world of Andrzej Sapkowski. However, the universe enthusiasts who prepared a petition calling for the release of Lauren S. Hissrich are of a completely different opinion.
Last week, the second season of “The Witcher” debuted on Netflix, which is a clear confirmation of the direction in which the creators of the series are heading. The scriptwriters use the key elements of Andrzej Sapkowski’s universe and create their own stories based on them.
Once again, some plot solutions did not appeal to Geralt’s fans, which is why the petition according to which Lauren S. Hissrich should be fired is gaining more and more popularity.
“We admirers and fans of the Witcher universe are asking Netflix executives to release Lauren Schmidt Hissrich from the showrunner for The Witcher.”
The community emphasizes that the series completely disregards the rich universe created by the Polish writer and CD Projekt RED, and Hissrich uses the production to “promote his ideas”:
“We love the world of The Witcher. We love Andrzej Sapkowski’s books, which have beautiful dialogues, a well-developed universe, a strong story and heroes. We love CD Projekt games, which made The Witcher famous all over the world – for a good story, respect for the source, amazing direction and quality.
Lauren Schmidt completely disregards and disregards the universe and the lore of The Witcher, as well as the fans of this universe. It completely ignores the opinion of the community and the rules of this universe, turning it into a platform to promote your ideas. It completely hits the lore of this world and spits on the huge community of The Witcher fans. Leaving her as a showrunner (especially after Season 1) would mean that Netflix is also spitting on all fans of the universe. “
Reading the text of the petition , we have no doubt that it was created two years ago and was a reaction to the first episodes of production. The debut of the latest season significantly increased interest in the idea to fire Lauren S. Hissrich.
Fans emphasize that it is necessary to change … Literally everything:
“The characters are not completely depicted. The world is not described at all, making it unclear to a person who has not read books or played games. The plot breaks down in every episode. The costumes are terrible. Graphics at the level of 2007 games. Fights with monsters are comical. Honestly, the dialogues are stupid. The battle scenes are funny and poorly staged. The make-up is lame. The actors were almost always poorly cast. “
According to the authors of the petitioners “Netflix can do more”, the website has the resources and capabilities to develop a high-quality series that will be able to match “Game of Thrones” – the key issue, however, is the showrunner:
“And once again – we admirers and fans of the Witcher universe are demanding the Netflix management to dismiss Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (Lauren Schmidt Hissrich) from the showrunner function of The Witcher series.”
