The Witcher got so many fan’s attention and has gone to become one of the crown jewels of Netflix.
Bigger and Better
Even though the first season was released back in 2019, the show’s hype hasn’t died down. So, Netflix is aiming for an even more successful second season.
While the lockdown has put some strain on the second season’s shooting, there are chances that Netflix will debut the second season by 2021. Netflix is also leaving no stone unturned in keeping the fans excited about the show.
Recently Netflix conducted six days of Christmas presents by taking polls and revealing some strange unknown things about the second season or the previous season. Even though the series failed in the critical acclaim department, it did score high in the revenue and fans department.
The show was wildly popular among video gamers as the short stories were already adapted into them before Netflix got the idea of making it into a series. Given the show’s popularity and the wide expectations for the second season, we have received reports that the second season is being shot on a budget on par with Marvel shows.
As we know it will take forever to keep up with the quality of Marvel shows, it is good to know Netflix is putting in a lot of effort to make it happen.
How much did Cavill make?
According to some early reports, we saw that Henry Cavill received a payment of $400000 for each episode in the first season. That about sums up to $3.2 million.
Given now that the series is a massive hit and that Netflix is spending so much to make it grand, without a doubt Cavill’s payout for one episode would’ve exceeded the $5 million mark.
Time to Up His Game
Henry Cavill is a worldwide known actor as he played DC’s Superman. But he never sat well with the critics. He is involved with some famous franchises and recently finally had some excellent acting skills displayed with Enola Holmes, but he might need to up his game if he wants to keep the fans satisfied.
Well, without a doubt, he is hot, and there is no complaint in that area. If only he could up his acting game, and the writers could get better at writing, maybe Netflix might hit the jackpot with critical acclaim and fan favorites.
Well, they can’t have it all, can they? But with the way the series has reached everywhere, Henry Cavill must get working, especially with actors like Anya Chalotra winning hearts with her acting skills.
