People often get annoyed when movies or TV shows don’t adapt the books their based on word for word.

However, the truth of the matter is adapting something for the big or small screen isn’t easy.

Storytelling is very different for each medium.

It is true that TV shows give you more time, so you can be more faithful to the source material.

However, when it comes to The Witcher, they’ve got so much source material to be inspired by.

So, The Witcher’s showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich revealed how Season 2 will differ from the books.

Here’s what The Witcher’s showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich told TV Guide about Season 2:

Well, we found in writing the show that we didn’t actually want to skip over those first months of them getting to know each other.

That’s part of the fun, is to take these characters, as you say, who understand that they’re each other’s destiny – not really embracing it, but accepting that this is what they need to do to continue walking through The Continent.

And then see like, what would that really be like? What would it be like for two strangers to come together and feel like that’s what they’ve been driving for for the entire season?

They finally got together and then they’re like, ‘Oh, I don’t know you at all. You are a stranger.’
