After a story claimed Henry Cavill’s salary for The Witcher season 2 was $400k per episode, sources now claim the actor is paid significantly more.
Cavill plays Geralt of Rivia, the main monster hunter in the epic drama, as he travels across the medieval region known as the Continent.
Geralt will discover his destiny is related to that of Cintran princess Cirilla during his trip, with season 2 focusing on their meeting and his efforts to protect her from the evil forces pursuing her and her growing magical powers.
Salary has been revealed by Henry Cavill
Freya Allen as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Geralt’s love interest and quarter-elf sorceress Yennefer, Eamon Farren as Nilfgaardian commander Cahir, Joey Batey as bard Jaskier, Mimi Ndiweni as Nilfgaard’s sorceress ally Fringilla, and Anna Shaffer as sorceress Triss Merigold round out the cast for The Witcher Kim Bodnia will join the cast as Vesemir, the oldest living witcher and Geralt’s mentor and father figure, in Season 2 of the series. With the return of The Witcher on the brink, new facts about the production of season 2 are surfacing.
Cavill’s current demanding schedule, which includes the highly anticipated The Witcher season 2, was recently featured by The Hollywood Reporter. Cavill’s salary for the upcoming chapter of the Netflix series, according to sources, is $1 million per episode. Cavill reportedly signed a new deal to enhance his income for The Witcher Season 2, though there was no indication of when this arrangement was reached other than the fact that the star “just signed” it.
The latest figures for Cavill’s Witcher season 2 salary are a significant improvement above the previous claim, which stated that he was paid $400k each episode.
With no indication of when he signed the $1 million per episode deal, it’s unclear whether the previous claim was inaccurate or if he and Netflix collaborated to secure him a bigger payment for the next new chapter.
Whatever the situation may be, Cavill earning extra money is almost certainly a sign of the streaming service’s positive faith in his work on the program and its future.
