Netflix has revealed that they are developing and producing a new show based on the Witcher series of novels by Andrzej Sapowski. The TV show will be based on the books soley and not on the games with Sapkowski serving as creative consultant on the show.
There is not clarification on which specific stories the series will follow but the show’s executive producers are Sean Daniel and Jason Brown from the acclaimed sci-fi show The Expanse. Tomas Baginski, who directed the intro videos for the Witcher games and the Cyberpunk 2077 teaser will direct at least one episode per season.
The show will be co-produced by Platige Image, a Polish producation and visual effects studio. There is no release date or info on the cast and director roles just yet. We’ll certainly hear more in the future.
The Witcher series of books are a beloved set of stories for readers and hearing that they will make the journey to the screen is certainly encouraging. There are some rich stories to tell, and the way the books are written, they lend well to the episodic format of TV. We are very excited to give this a watch.
