Witcher TV Show from Netflix?

Months ago it was announced that Netflix would be producing a live-action series based on the novels and video game franchise The Witcher.

Producer Tomek Baginski (Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac) was previously said to be directing some episodes. The new addition is seasoned TV writer Thania St. John (Grimm, Eureka, Roswell), who is expected be adapting it with creative consultant Andrzej Sapkowski.

Baginski earned an Oscar nomination for his 2002 animated short film The Cathedral, he’s also been working on the video game cinematics and was announced officially as a producer on the series in the initial press release.

There isn’t any word concerning casting or when this could begin shooting. However, Netflix has posted the official synopsis for the series.

The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.


Wow! I had never heard that this was in the works!

Hope they make a good job of it!!

the voice actor of the English speaking games is fantastic, alas I don't know if he'd be good as visual actor, but I can't imagine Geralt without his voice :P

For some reason I saw this and my mind read Witchblade, which I have seen the live-action series and I love it. Haven't seen the anime though.

Never read any of The Witcher works, but this sounds interesting. I look forward to seeing what becomes of this.

The Witcher is a series of fantasy novels and short stories by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. They became very popular internationally with the release of the video games. Here's a taste for those curious to what such a TV show might be like. (Warning: Some graphic violence)
