The Witcher Netflix Series Set For Late 2019 Launch - Prima Games

The Witcher Netflix Series Set For Late 2019 Launch

by Liana Ruppert

Now that the Netflix The Witcher team is on its third location for filming, fans anticipating the latest adapation of the beloved novels that gave us an incredible video game series are wondering when they can binge the new show. While we still don’t have an official release date at this time, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer confirmed during a recent investor call that the show is on track for a late 2019 launch. 

Showrunner Lauren Hissrich has been gleefully transparent throughout the whole production process. She has been very quick to address concerns in the past, very honest with where she is at progression-wise. She’s definitely no stranger to working within the realm of Netflix with her previous talents put forth for both Daredevil and The Defenders.

With a tagline of “The Witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts,” we can’t help but to be completely excited for the upcoming 8 episode-long series! Fans are even warming up to the idea of Cavill as Geralt himself following numerous photos leaked of him on set and during his grueling training regime when getting in tip-top witcher shape. 

The upcoming show stars Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill as the main protagonist himself, alongside Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, and Anna Shaffer as Triss Merigold. The author of the books himself is also on board with the project, working as the creative consultant for Hissrich’s vision. 

Hopefully as filming in Poland progresses, we’ll be able to get a more cemented debut date for the new series.
