The Witcher is coming to Netflix

Posted on May 17, 2017

The Witcher Saga, famous video game series by CD Projekt Red and book series by Andrzej Sapkowski is coming to Netflix as a series.

Netflix has reported that they will work with Polish production and visual effect studio Platige Image to bring the characters to a new life. Unlike the games, author Andrezej Sapkowski will be on board as a creative consultant.

“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.”

“I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories, staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing.” Says Polish author Sapkowski in the official press release

Platige themselves were the ones to reveal the news, not Netflix, posting an announcement on their website describing the series as a drama. The series will thankfully be in English. Some big names from Netflix are also assisting in the production;,with The Expanse’s Sean Daniel and Jason Brown as executive producers, along with Oscar nominated director Tomeki Baginski.
