Fans of Bathtub Geralt will be happy to hear that a tub will be in the upcoming Netflix show The Witcher. But showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich isn't saying who's in the tub quite yet.
In an interview with io9 at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Hissrich says fans of both the books and the games can expect some nods to little details about the series, an aspect she and the writers wanted to honor. But she's not giving it all away before the show airs.
"There is a bathtub this season. There is a bathtub," Hissrich says. "I won't tell you who's in the bathtub, but there is a bathtub."
The particular "bathtub scene" from the video game caught fire on social media for how ridiculous it was. PC Gamer even used a screenshot of it to promote pretty much any The Witcher 3-related story it published, leading to CD Projekt Red sending the site a statue of Geralt in a bathtub.
A trailer for Netflix's The Witcher premiered at San Diego Comic-Con, showing off what viewers can expect from this take on Geralt of Rivia. The showrunner already confirmed to The Wrap that the series won't be adapting the games, even in the "extreme long vision." This take seems much more centered on the books, which take place well before games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. (To get an idea, just look at how old Ciri is in this trailer versus Ciri in Wild Hunt.)
So with scope and scale out of the way, and both costuming and big monster action looking great, just one question remains: who will be in the tub?
