One more month to go before we get to feast our eyes on The Witcher Netflix series and to celebrate, the Lauren Hissrich and co. have just shared a brand new poster showing off our three major characters in the upcoming novel adaptation.
The official Witcher Twitter account shared our latest look with a very serious trio of characters looking off into the distance. With the much younger Ciri on the right and Yennefer harnessing her inner power on the left, the three very beloved characters are ready to take on any fight.

In other The Witcher news, showrunner Lauren Hissrich confirmed that while the series itself has season 2 already confirmed, she actually has 7 seasons mapped out already, "I've [mapped out stories] for seven seasons. Right now it's just about, 'How do you set up stories that really capture audiences for years at a time?' The worst thing we could do is put all of our energies just into season one, and not be thinking about where these characters can grow to," said showrunner Lauren Hissrich in a recent interview with SFX magazine.
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," it's hard not to be totally amped for the upcoming 8-episode long series!
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.
The Witcher Netflix series officially debuts on December 20th!
