The Witcher is one of the series that I always wanted to get into, but I never had the time to invest in it. You can tell that a lot of effort went into making the games and the fanbase who follows the franchise is pretty strong. Also, the game series is a fucking national treasure in Poland, based of the novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, so it has that going for it too.
The franchise is also making the big leap to television with a Netflix series. It has a decent cast, with Henry Cavill playing the witch fucker Geralt. The cast is rounded out by Freya Allan as Princess Ciri and Anya Chalotra as the sorceress Yennefer.
Looking pretty good. I was apprehensive when I first heard the news that Netflix was doing this, but it seems like a high quality production. Maybe inspired a bit by Game of Thrones? With that series ending, there’s a void of hot fantasy based sex on TV.
The Witcher is set to debut on Netflix in 2020.
