What The Witcher Fans Would Love To See In A Sitcom Version Of The Show

When it comes to Netflix's hit series "The Witcher," one wouldn't exactly call it a comedy... aside from the musical moments of Jaskier (Joey Batey). However, some fans can't help but wonder what a sitcom version of the dramatic fantasy show would entail.

Over the course of its first two seasons, "The Witcher" features some pretty dark and disturbing events. For example, in one extremely graphic scene, Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) trades her ability to have children for beauty. Of course, this is but one example in a series filled with numerous acts of brutality. Then there's little Ciri (Freya Allan), princess of Cintra, who is forced to flee upon the invasion of the Nilfgaardian Army. During the invasion, soldiers fatally wound her grandmother, Queen Calanthe (Jodhi May).

Of course, leading man Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) has more than his fair share of horrifying encounters with evil beasts. From the kikimora and the striga to the djinn and countless others, it's basically Geralt's job to slay these creatures. This is in addition to some pretty horrible human beings, such as Renfri (Emma Appleton). In the premiere episode, Geralt has no choice but to kill Renfri, who has no problem harming innocent citizens on her path to take down the wizard Stregobor (Lars Mikkelsen).

Despite all of this heartache and darkness, "The Witcher" fans were able to clearly visualize a sitcom edition that would include some hilarious interactions among the trio of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri, as well as Jaskier.

Fans brainstormed hilarious ideas for the sitcom Law of Surprise

On the r/Witcher subreddit, u/FewBoysenberry6792 shared a poster for an imagined spin-off of "The Witcher," and fellow fans loved it, gifting it more than ten thousand upvotes. The poster shows Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri cheesily smiling on the advertisement for a show called "Law of Surprise." It's a fun nod to the dated custom on "The Witcher," which states that when someone saves another's life, they're to be given an unknown reward in the future. Geralt, who rids Duny (Bart Edwards) of a curse, is granted his firstborn child, Ciri.

"He's a career-focused father, she's a studious academic trying to empower herself," u/FewBoysenberry6792 wrote. "And their recently adopted daughter? Well, she's got some s*** going on!"

Other fans helped to flesh out the idea, including u/Bubbli1, who said, "Geralt putting his hands in his sides and saying, 'Oh Yen,' at the end of an episode when she has schemed someone." Many compared this to the Disney+ series "WandaVision" and called for a crossover episode. U/10SB provided another plot focusing on Yen's old college buddy Istredd (Royce Pierreson), a friendship that makes Geralt jealous.

A number of Reddit users also brainstormed comedic scenes involving Jaskier. Since he manages to bring a lightness to "The Witcher," the possibilities would be endless on a sitcom. U/GODDAMNFOOL said, "Jaskier just busts through the front door without knocking, stands in a heroic pose every time, and the crowd starts cheering." 

The majority of fans laughingly agreed that "Law of Surprise" would be a hit and a perfect addition to a television network like NBC. Although that may seem like a stretch, it's certainly an amusing thought.
