Netflix has released a teaser trailer for The Witcher, an upcoming drama series that’s based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s popular fantasy saga.
The author has served as a creative consultant on the series, which centers on the witcher Geralt of Rivia – a monster hunter who developed supernatural abilities at a young age that he uses to battle deadly monsters.
“I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories, staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing,” enthuses Andrzej Sapkowski.
“I’m excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life.”
Executive producers Sean Daniel and Jason Brown add: “The Witcher stories follow an unconventional family that comes together to fight for truth in a dangerous world. The characters are original, funny and constantly surprising and we can’t wait to bring them to life at Netflix, the perfect home for innovative storytelling.”
The Witcher season one will release on Netflix in 2019.
