The fantasy video game and novels of The Witcher is coming to Netflix!
The Polish company Platige has officially announced that a TV adaptation of Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher is headed to Netflix and here is what Sapkowski had to say in a press release:
“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,” said the author.“I’m excited about our efforts together as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life.”
The story, in a nutshell, focuses on the adventures of Geralt of Rivia and his quest to become a powerful monster-hunter. We think the vibe will be similar to Game of Thrones and we also expect it to be just as graphic.
Let’s just say, it won’t be for young viewers.
