Fans of The Witcher have been waiting for a long time and soon it's finally time. The hotly anticipated serial adaptation is finally getting started. With a brand new main trailer, Netflix now adds even more excitement. In addition, we now finally know the start date of the new Netflix series. With a new look into the world of The Witcher, Netflix ensures a lot of anticipation. In it we get a taste of the dark and violent fantasy world. The series is not based on the eponymous video games, but on the books of the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. Especially the first season is based specifically on the novel The Last Wish. It is a collection of short stories, which chronologically represents the beginning of the book series.
Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) personifies the witcher Geralt of Riva, who is resting in a temple injured. He always thinks back to the brutal events of his life. Already in the first episodes we can count on some flashbacks. We can be surprised how Netflix will implement that. Among them are the only 18-year-old young actress Freya Allan as Cirilla by Cintra. She is also known as Ciri and already played a major role in the book series. Also, the British actress Anya Chalotra will be seen as Yennefer of Vengerberg. She is just one of the many lovers of the witcher Geralt.
With the hype of video games and original books, even the series could become a mega hit. Some even claim that this could be a potential replacement for Game of Thrones. By the end of the year, we'll know for sure when the start date of the Netflix series is up. In the first season of The Witcher a total of 8 episodes will be broadcast. These you see from 20 December 2019 at the series provider. Watch this video in our video player for the latest trailer for The Witcher.
