The Witcher Netflix TV show could be out in 2020

We now have some more details about The Witcher Netflix TV show that was announced last year.

According to writer Lauren S Hissrich on Twitter, the series is likely to air in 2020, with an eight episode run. So far, only the pilot is written with the other seven episodes yet to be penned. 

Furthermore, the show will be shot in Eastern Europe - something of a no-brainer considering the origins of its source material, but it's great that the top brass has realised and acknowledged how much of a big part of the feel of this fiction its real-world history is.




The show was announced in May 2017, and was going to be based on Andrzej Sapkowski's books, as opposed to the video game series they inspired.

The Witcher TV show will no doubt be a hit with fans of the video games. Developer and publisher CD Projekt RED has said that it won't be making another entry in the franchise for some time. Said series turned ten last year
