Finishing the novel adapted game The Witcher 3 by CD Projekt Red felt like the end of a life you’ve come to love. Well, apparently, Netflix is going to take us back to the beautiful world of the Witcher in series form. A Witcher tv series is being developed by Netflix and Tomas Baginski who directed the intro videos for all three Witcher games. Tomas is going to direct at least one episode per season of the upcoming tv series.
Andrzej Sapkowski who wrote the eight Witcher novels will be the creative consultant of the tv show. He is actually really happy that this is happening as he had this to say in a post by Platige Image “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 30 years writing. I’m excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life”.
Executive producers for the show Sean Daniel and Jason brown said “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.”
Baginski and Jarek Sawko from Platige Image who will also be contributing to the series said ” There is a moral and intellectual depth in these books which goes beyond genre. It is a story about today and today’s challenges, hidden under a fantasy cover. It is a story about us, about the monster and the hero inside all of our hearts.”
So far there’s no release date or even cast details yet but we’ll be sure to let you know when there’s any update. The Witcher series will definitely be mind-blowing when It comes out.
