What can be said about this new series, prior to its release, that we haven’t already said on this site. Based on the novel series of the same name and the video game series of the same name, “The Witcher” is full of high profile fantasy action and violence. Host to horrible nightmarish monsters and even worse human beings, this is one world you will feel satisfied watching rather than actually living in.
The show looks to have a very high production budget granting it a similar look to the middle seasons of “Game of Thrones“, yet only time will tell if this show will even come close to the series it is doomed to have comparisons with.
Personally, I can not wait for this series, having read a couple of the novels and played the second and third games, as well as being a master at Gwent. Hopefully this will be a Netflix original series the likes of popularity similar to “Stranger Things“.
Set to debut later this year, “The Witcher” will hopefully be one of Netflix’s biggest successes and not one of their many shows that no one has ever heard of.
