The Witcher fans sign a petition to keep Henry Cavill as Geralt

To ensure that Henry Cavill will remain as Geralt of Rivia in the live-action adaptation of The Witcher series, a fan has gone to great lengths.

Case in point, the said fan has launched a petition for Netflix to replace the showrunners as well as its showrunners instead.

The petition follows the news of Cavill stepping down from his role with Liam Hemsworth as his replacement.

While the petition didn’t gain traction immediately, it pulled in close to 17,000 signatures of its goal of 25,000 and more are signing up by the minute. 

Plenty of fans watch The Witcher because of Cavill. So, it doesn't come as a surprise that some will go to great lengths to make sure that he stays.

Whether the fans’ wishes and threats will force Netflix and make changes in favor of the petition remains to be seen.
