We still have a little over a month before the first season of The Witcher arrives on Netflix, but apparently the streaming giant is excited about the project.
It was announced today that Netflix has already ordered a season two of the series, which is an adaptation of Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski‘s book series of the same name we’ve previously seen adapted into the hit video game trilogy developed by CD Projekt RED.
Netflix has released the first trailer for The Witcher, a live-action series based on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski‘s popular book series of the same name which was previously adapted into the hit video game series, also of the same name.
The series stars Henry Cavill (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) as Geralt of Rivia, also known as the White Wolf. Geralt is a witcher, someone who is trained mentally, physically, and magically from a young age, and undergoes genetic modification. This gives them immense skills, which they often use to work as monster hunters for hire.
