The Witcher is getting a Netflix series

The Witcher 3 was an absolutely incredible game. Great story, beautiful graphics and cool characters. However, the video games were based on a series of books by Andrzej Sapkowski. Known collectively as the Witcher Saga, the books focus on Witchers – hunters who develop supernatural abilities at a young age to battle deadly monsters.

It appears we will be getting a TV show based on the books as Netflix are working with Polish production and visual effects studio Platige Image on the show, and original author Sapkowski will serve as a creative consultant. As he had no involvement with the video games from CD Projekt Red it is great to hear he is working on the show.

“Andrzej Sapkowski has created a rich and memorable world, at once magical and familiar,” says Erik Barmack, Netflix’s VP for international series. “We couldn’t be more excited about bringing [it to] Netflix members around the world.”

Sapkowski said, “I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories, staying true to the source material and 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.”

Platige, the Polish animation and film studio behind the project, will work with producers Sean Daniel (The Mummy, Ben-Hur, The Expanse) and Jason Brown (The Expanse) on the project. Platige’s Tomek Baginski, who directed all three Witcher video game intro cinematics, will be involved as one of the directors.
