The new Netflix series, based on the literary saga of Andrzej Sapkowski and starring Henry Cavill, is available from December 20
Netflix launched “The Witcher” on December 20, starring Henry Cavill. The series, consisting of ten episodes, is taken from the literary saga “The Witcher” (or “Geralt of Rivia saga”, also known as the witcher saga) of the Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, from which a film was also made (Polish ) in 2001 and, above all, a series of video games that made it famous all over the world.
“The Witcher” is an epic fairy tale. Geralt of Rivia, a lone monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove themselves more evil than beasts. But when fate pushes him towards a powerful witch and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to live together to face a journey together.
Four episodes, including the first, will be directed by Alik Sakharov (House of Cards, Game of Thrones), while Alex Garcia Lopez (Marvel – Luke Cage, Utopia), Charlotte Brändström (Outlander – The last Viking, Counterpart and Disparue ) and Marc Jobst (Tin Star, Marvel’s The Punisher) will direct two episodes each.
And if you like “The Witcher”, rest assured, Netflix has already announced the second season for the first months of 2021, with filming starting in January 2020.
