In case you missed it, Netflix sometimes adds various profile icons for its shows and the like that users can then select as the image for, well, their profile. Prior to today, Netflix had several different options for The Witcher series available, including the main cast of Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer in addition to other, more minor icons. But there was one particularly noteworthy person missing: everyone's favorite bard Jaskier. Today, however, that omission has been resolved.
You can check out the back and forth that ultimately ended up with Jaskier being added, and the new profile icon itself, below:
It has been brought to my attention that not only do a horse and a hideous kikimora have a @Netflix icon before a certain someone, but there are TWO varieties of swords... Care to comment @NXonNetflix?— The Witcher (@witchernetflix) August 28, 2020
