Netflix to produce The Witcher TV Series.

Netflix to Produce The Witcher TV Series
Netflix will develop and produce a new show based on The Witcher Saga, the series of eight novels by Andrzej Sapkowski that inspired the hugely popular CD Projekt Red RPG games.

Sapkowski - who does not profit from the game series - will serve as a creative consultant on the series. “I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories," he explained in a press release, "staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing."

Tomas Baginski - who directed the intro videos for all three Witcher games, as well as the Cyberpunk 2077 teaser trailer - will direct at least one episode per season.
Having played the Witcher 3 probably 4 times over, I would absolutely love to see this brought to life. I just hope they don't make it PG-13.

Just noticed this too...I love the Witcher series and I think he could pull it off. He's one of those younger guys (32 or something) that look kind of older than he really is, so he could do the Geralt "old man" look for a solid amount of time.

I liked Cavill in MI: Fallout so I will definitely be watching this.

Speaking of white, apparently Ciri isn't going to be.

Oh well, I was excited for a few days. Good to know the sjw's ruined it before the series even took off.

So they've revealed how it looks:



I really hope this will be...darkened. I read the books and Geralt is nowhere near this "romantic". He's a pretty melancholic character, and his good looks are complemented with scars. Well, this looks like Captain America more than Geralt, what do you think?
