“Geralt and Jaskier should just be a couple on the show. I’d be far more interested in watching it,” tweeted one fan, while another wrote: “Is it just me or are Geralt and Jaskier like really fucking gay for each other? Like wow.”
When Digital Spy asked series creator Lauren S Hissrich about this, she denied any homoerotic undertones and said Jaskier and Geralt’s relationship is “just an example of male friendship”.
“These are men who… one of them is very passionate, and very creative, and is able to express his feelings; and one is not at all,” she explained. “But they both ultimately love each other very much.”
