Season 1 of The Witcher on Netflix made an impression, especially with Henry Cavill shirtless in several sequences and ultra hot in his bath scenes (which he had unveiled behind the scenes). And season 2 is finally available since Friday, December 17, 2021 on Netflix. The opportunity to find Henry Cavill, his muscular arms and his abs to play Geralt de Riv! And to turn in the adaptation of the Polish literary saga The Witcher, written by Andrzej Sapkowski (who has also been adapted into a video game), the actor would have a crazy salary!
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Henry Cavill will earn $ 1 million per episode. Yes, you read that right. “Henry Cavill just signed a new contract paying over $ 1 million per episode, sources say” wrote the US media. Since there are 8 episodes in season 2 of The Witcher, he would therefore have received $ 8 million (around € 7 million) for Season 2 alone. A previous report said he earned “only” $ 400,000 (over 350,000 euros) per episode in season 1.
