THE WITCHER: First Details On Next Spin-Off Revealed As Petition For Henry Cavill's Return Crosses 250,000

Details about another The Witcher spin-off have been revealed, though the characters it focuses on aren't well-liked among fans! A petition asking for Henry Cavill's return, meanwhile, has crossed 250,000.

We're less than a month away from The Witcher: Blood Origin arriving on Netflix, and we now have news on another planned spin-off courtesy of Redanian Intelligence.

The Witcher is set to return to our screens next summer, marking Henry Cavill's final appearance as Geralt of Rivia before Liam Hemsworth takes over in season 4. The streaming service is clearly intent on expanding the world of the Continent, though, with another live-action project set to revolve around The Rats. 

The infamous group of young Nilfgaardian misfits are heavily featured in Ciri's storyline in the books as she joins them for a time, though the character's small screen counterpart will first meet them in season 3's seventh and eighth episodes. The Rats are expected to feature heavily in season 4 of The Witcher, but their spin-off will arrive before that.  

It's unclear whether Ciri would be involved, though, and the site isn't sure whether it's a prequel, an "inbetweenquel," or both.

What's interesting is that, among fans of the books, The Rats are not particularly well-liked. While that makes this decision somewhat surprising, it's become apparent in recent months that the creative team working on the series don't have a huge amount of respect for the source material, anyway.

In terms of the cast, the site expects the same actors from The Witcher to reprise their roles in the spin-off, meaning it would star Christelle Elwin as Mistle, Fabian McCallum as Kayleigh, Juliette Alexandra as Reef, and Aggy K. Adams as Iskra. It's unknown who will star as Asse and Giselher.

The news comes at a time when goodwill for The Witcher franchise is low. That's due to Cavill's departure, of course, and a Change.org petition asking for his return - and for the show's writers to be fired - recently crossed 250,000 signatures. In fact, as we write this, it sits at over 260,000!

Cavill is said to have left the show due to its many deviations from the source material, and with a Superman return now on the horizon, we'd say he's done with Geralt whatever happens.
