The Witcher's showrunner doesn't mind Game of Thrones comparisons, but thinks The Witcher is a very different show

The king is dead, long live the king

There's no doubt Netflix is trying to swoop in and give disposed Game of Thrones viewers another high fantasy experience with The Witcher. Comparisons between the two shows started as soon as first word spread on the adaptation, and have only grown since then. Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich was asked about the comparisons, and she doesn't seem to mind one bit.

"I'm a huge fan of Game of Thrones, and I think the comparisons come from people asking if we're going to be as successful, and like, god, I hope so, but no, I think that they're one series and they did a great job, and I think that our show is very different, but I can only hope that we're as successful as them."
