THE WITCHER gets trailer and release date

Netflix's adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski's Witcher novels will arrive on Friday 20 December.

The eight-episode first season is a partial adaptation of elements from the first three Witcher books (The Last Wish, Sword of Destiny and Blood of Elves) and will focus on the adventures of Geralt (Henry Cavill), professional monster-hunter, as his path crosses that of Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), a powerful sorceress, and Ciri (Freya Allan), a princess who goes on the run when her kingdom is attacked by an expansionist empire.

The TV series is not based related to or based on CD Projekt's best-selling Witcher video game trilogy, although the studio that provided high-quality CGI cut-scenes for the games is also working on the show in an effects capacity.

Production for the series was based in Budapest and featured extensive location filming in Hungary and Poland, Andrzej Sapkowski's home country where the books have been huge bestsellers for over 25 years.
