"The Witcher" series will hit Netflix as a American-Polish co-production

Recommended Posts

firstwitcher011280jpg-7667b21280w-149502Netflix will develop and produce a new show based on The Witcher Saga, the series of eight novels by Andrzej Sapkowski that inspired the hugely popular CD Projekt Red RPG games.

 

Sapkowski - who does not profit from the game series  - will serve as a creative consultant on the series. “I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories," he explained in a press release, "staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing."

 

Tomas Baginski - who directed the intro videos for all three Witcher games, as well as the Cyberpunk 2077 teaser trailer - will direct at least one episode per season.

 

It's not clear as yet what specific stories the series will follow. Executive producers Sean Daniel and Jason Brown (The Expanse), said: “The Witcher stories follow an unconventional family that comes together to fight for truth in a dangerous world. The characters are original, funny and constantly surprising and we can’t wait to bring them to life at Netflix, the perfect home for innovative storytelling.”

 

Platige Image, a Polish production and visual effects house will co-produce. Executive producers Baginski and Jarek Sawko emphasised that the books' subtexts will not be lost in the adaptation: "There is a moral and intellectual depth in these books which goes beyond genre. It is a story about today and today’s challenges, hidden under a fantasy cover. It is a story about us, about the monster and the hero inside all of our hearts.”

 

No release date, casting, or further directorial choices have been revealed at time of writing.

 

It will be a second adaptation of the book after disappointing series from 2002.

Wow, this is unexpected. I hope they don't screw it up.  This series has the potential to become my all time favorite.

I feel like Netflix has done such a good job on the vast majority of their self-produced stuff but idk how to feel about this one. I effing love the games but it just feels like a flop for some reason.

Probably because of all the stigmata of bad game to anime/movie/cartoon productions that epicly failed. I was afraid Castlevania would suck, but it was awesome. Maybe Netflix will do just as good this time, if not better. :)

Looks and feels good so far! xD

Only issue is that was an entirely fan-made trailer. xD

It says so in the description.
