According to Chalotra, it’s not a Ciri reunion scene she’s most looking forward to seeing in season 4, but the intense plotline that comes beforehand. Speaking to Digital Spy, Chalotra confirmed that “Ciri and the Rats” are at the top of her wishlist for season 4. Though we haven’t gotten a proper introduction to them yet, the ragtag group of people who fight alongside Ciri in the finale are a gang of young people called The Rats. In Andrzej Sapkowski’s novel series, Ciri’s time with the Rats is formative — though not exactly in the best way. The criminal group initially seems to be acting out a sort of Witcher-verse Robin Hood plot with themselves in the part of the poor, but it soon becomes clear that their ransacking can get disturbingly violent.
Still, Ciri’s time with the Rats is a clear inflection point for the young hero, who to this point has been trained by both Geralt and Yen. “I’m excited to see that [plot] for her, for Ciri, for Freya,” Chalotra said. “I know she is, too.” The actress says she’s already met the cast members playing the Rats — Ben Radcliffe, Christelle Elwin, Aggy K. Adams, Fabian McCallum, Juliette Alexandra, and Connor Crawford. “They’re brilliant and what they’re going to bring to ‘The Witcher,’ I can’t wait for the fans to see,” Chalotra said.
