Witcher on Netflix
The Witcher Netflix series is getting closer, and we can’t wait to see our favorite grumpy demon hunter in the battle-scarred flesh. According to the streaming giant, the series will tell the tale of “Geralt, a mutated monster hunter [who] struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.” 

 

Set for release this December, the show will use the books, rather than the game adaptations, as source material, and Lauren Hissrich (previously of The Defenders, Daredevil and The West Wing) will act as showrunner. She’s been sharing the project’s progress on social media, and the recent release of an action-packed trailer has us salivating all over our silver swords.
