The Netflix Witcher series is set to air sometime near the end of this year.
A report published by Deadline claimed that Season One of the dark fantasy adaptation would be available to viewers on Netflix in the fourth quarter of 2019. Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandso made the announcement during Netflix’s last call to investors.
Considering that the Witcher Netflix series was originally slated for a 2020 release, this is good news. However post-production related delays are still possible. Netflix originally ordered eight episodes for Season One, with Lauren Schmidt Hissrich as the show’s Writer and Executive Producer. The author of the original Witcher books Andrzej Sapkowski was also confirmed as a creative consultant.
Netflix’s Witcher TV series will star Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) as the infamous Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter for hire trying to find his place in a world that fears and despises him. Alongside Cavill are Freya Allan as Geralt’s adopted daughter Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennifer of Vengerburg, and Anna Shaffer as Triss Merigold.
The Witcher Netflix series is currently in production in Hungary.
