The Witcher

Netflix has released a short, quick-cut teaser for its upcoming series ‘The Witcher’.  This isn’t a full trailer, but with this release, it is expected that that is coming within the next four days.  It is believed that Netflix will announce when the show will finally arrive at that time.

‘The Witcher’ TV series was created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, based on the books by Andrzej Sapkowski.  Schmidt serves as writer, executive producer, and showrunner.  Although he initially reported that he would have no involvement, Sapkowski met with Hissrich last year and then announced that he would serve as a creative consultant.

Here is Netflix’s synopsis for the series:

Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
