The Witcher is chock-full of fantasy action, but we are sure a lot of you enjoy the chemistry between Geralt and Yennefer just as much.
While you think that the show could be fixing a ‘will they, won’t they?’ dynamic which will be resolved in season 3 before it shifts to that specialize in their life as a few , showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich is adamant that the pair will never calm down.
Speaking to 3rd & Fairfax: Writers Guild of America West podcast, Hissrich stated that Geralt and Yennefer’s unnaturally long lives would prevent them from having a normal life together.
“Time is a very different thing for [them], so [they’re] not going to go get married and settle down and have kids. They have short bursts of either sexual relationships or… flirtations that they may sort of come back and visit that person, but by the time they come back, that person could be dead.
“What i prefer to imagine is that Yennefer and Geralt are both wont to doing it one way; they’re both kind of perpetual bachelors.
“Geralt and Yennefer are adore pinballs off of every other during a way… Even within the books, i do not know that there is really a happily ever after for them. It’s such a sweet dream, but it is so unrealistic.
“These people are never getting to be sheep farmers and basket weavers. They both have this type of desire to measure on this fringe of life and death.”
Hissrich has also stated that she wasn’t sure about taking on the show, but changed her mind after reading the novels and realising the series was really about family.
