During the San Diego International Comic-Con 2019, Netflix released the trailer for their new series The Witcher. The series is based off a popoular fantasy book series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, which also inspired a video game and a graphic novel of the same name.
The show centers around a mutated witcher (monster hunter) named Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) who finds that the humans in his world can be far more threatening than the terrifyingly dangerous creatures he hunts, as people have offensive intent, rather than defensive nature on guiding their decisions. Along the way, he encounters a powerful sorceress and a young princess who join him on his increasingly dangerous path.
The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
The series premiere date is still unknown as of this date.
