A new TV adaptation of Polish fantasy series The Witcher is launching on Netflix in December.
In a trailer released yesterday (below), the platform confirmed that the show is set to roll out on December 20th. This is our second look at The Witcher TV series, following a trailer that was released in July of this year.
Showrunner Lauren Hissrich has said that the TV show is intended for a mature audience, much like the games that helped bring the fantasy novel series to a global audience. Henry Cavill, best known as Superman, has taken on the lead role of Geralt of Rivia.
This news comes about a year after author Andrej Sapowski demanded $16m in royalties from game developer CD Projekt due to the fact he sold the rights to The Witcher to the Polish studio for a small amount with the franchise going on to generate huge amounts of cash. This initially was dismissed as "groundless" by CD Projekt, but the matter appears to have been resolved.
