+ The Witcher boss teases a major character will be queer in season 3.
“We have Phillipa, who’s best known… I would say she’s a queer icon for book readers. We delve into her character. It’s not something we shy away from… I also think with Ciri, that’s something that I would say is hinted at in the books, but you never really get into what is her sexuality, and we start to delve into that more as well. All of that is coming down the horizon, and it is fun. I’m glad that you brought it up, because one of the things that I think that we try very hard to do with The Witcher is show that fantasy is for everyone, and represents everyone.”
