The Witcher is one of the most popular video games and books out there and now it is going to get a new television series adaptation as well. Fans around the world and especially in Europe are certainly looking forward to this television series.
Even though the exact release date of the show has not been revealed yet but it is clear that the show will be releasing in the fourth quarter of 2019, meaning in the last few months of 2019. This information was revealed by Ted Sarandos who is the chief content officer for Netflix.
He confirmed that The Witcher series will be releasing in the final quarter of 2019. This television show will be adapting its content from The Witcher books by Andrzej Sapkowski. It is going to be produced by Netflix and created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. The genre of this television series is action, drama, and fantasy. The directors working on this series are Alik Sakharov,
Alex Garcia Lopez and Charlotte Brändström. The cast of the show is headed by the Superman himself Henry Cavill while the rest of the cast is yet to be confirmed. The plot of this series is similar to that of The Witcher video games and thus it is super interesting and cool. The story of The Witcher centers around a character named Geralt of Rivia.
Henry Cavill will be playing the role of Geralt of Rivia. He is a special mutated human being which has been trained to kill monsters. He is one of the last remaining Witchers. Thus, he has to try to fit into a world where he is the odd one out and the people around him are more wicked than the monsters.
He gets tangled in the story with a young princess named Ciri and a sorceress. The paths of these three characters cross and now they have to survive on a volatile continent together.
Ciri wants to become a Witcher like Geralt under his guidance and thus Ciri will be shown being protected by Geralt time and again. The video games of The Witcher are certainly more popular than books so Netflix may have identified a great source of wealth by adapting these books as not a lot of people know about them as they only play games.
It certainly is a very interesting story and I’m certain that the visual experience of this fantasy drama is going to be fantastic for sure. So, let us see how things turn out to be and do share with us your thoughts on The Witcher series.
