The Witcher is a fantasy drama TV series created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich for Netflix. It is based on the book series of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski.
The Witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
Writer Sapkowski has already confirmed he’ll be acting as a creative consultant on the show. “I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories, staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over 30 years writing,” he said when the show was announced last year.
