The Show is Expected to Come to Netflix in Last Three Months of 2019
Geralt of Rivia will soon hit the massive streaming service as the production of Netflix’s ‘The Witcher’ comes to a close. The highly anticipated show stars Henry Cavill as Geralt, although I still am of the opinion Mads Mikkelsen would have been perfect casting. Set in the fantasy world of Continent, The Witcher follows a mutated, for-hire monster hunter who travels the world, engaging in matters of state and journeying on various heroic quests. Along the way, Geralt finds friends and romance as he struggles to get by in a prejudice world.
The news comes to us via Henry Cavill’s personal Instagram account. In his post, Cavill writes “it has been an incredible journey! The cast and crew worked tirelessly throughout, everyone pitched in and brought their A game…”. His post also depicts the former Superman actor with a bald cap on, presumably for his white wig to go over.
The Witcher will run for 8 episodes and is based on the fantasy novel series written by Andrzej Sapkowski. In addition, the three Witcher video games are also based on the novels. Lauren Hissrich, The Witcher showrunner, also confirms the wrap of season one via a Twitter post. In that same tweet, Hissrich ends it with a teaser by writing a very cryptic two words: “Now, onto…”. Now onto what? A trailer? Season two? An entirely new project?
Unfortunately, any details regarding Netflix’s The Witcher remains scarce. Recently footage was leaked that shows how the Nilfgaardian will look (before digital improvement). A recent investor call confirms that the show will release in the fourth quarter of 2019, which means anytime in October through December.
