Netflix and Platige Image have announced a new series based on The Witcher.

If this sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because of the Witcher movie announced in 2015. Back then, Platige described a movie based on “The Witcher” and “The Lesser Evil,” which would lead into a TV series.

I haven’t seen anything else about the movie, but this seems to be the series they had in mind.

It will be produced by Sean Daniel and Jason Brown, along with Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko from Platige. Among other things, Baginski directed the intros for the three Witcher games, as well as the trailer for Cyberpunk 2077.

They haven’t said what parts of the story the show will follow, but Andrezej Sapkowski is on board as a creative consultant and sounds enthusiastic about the series staying true to his books.

I’ve never watched a Netflix series before… or anything else on Netflix, for that matter. However, if this is well-received, I might give it a try.

On a similar note, I finally picked up copies of The Tower of Swallows and The Lady of the Lake, so stay tuned for more Witcher reviews!
