After Henry Cavill announced his departure from The Witcher after Season 3, many fans took to Twitter to say that Jaskier (Joey Batey) is the best reason to continue watching the show. @MichelleDixArt tweeted, “This is so funny your fanbase already doesn’t like where the show is going and now one of the main draws is quieting down… All I’m worried about is if I’ll keep getting Joey Batey content but my god, Man, that’s tough.”
Although fans are disappointed that Cavill is leaving the show, some fans appear to have preferred Batey to Cavill in the first place. @angelkized tweeted, “Joey Batey is trending now because so many people are saying he’s the only reason they’re still watching.” @autistichelaena adding, “The only thing saving Netflix show ‘The Witcher’ at this point is Jaskier/Joey Batey, let’s face it.”
Luckily, Batey hasn’t announced any plans to leave the show, so fans should still get plenty of Jaskier’s character in upcoming seasons of The Witcher.
