Netflix’s The Witcher will be an 8-episode series. Alik Sakharov (House of Cards, Game of Thrones), Alex Garcia Lopez (Marvel’s Luke Cage, Utopia), and Charlotte Brändström (Outlander, Counterpart, Disparue) will direct. Hissrich (Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s The Defenders, Umbrella Academy) is the showrunner and will also executive produce along with Sakharov.
The logline for the upcoming series is as follows:
“Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.”
The Witcher will star Henry Cavill, Freya Allan (Into the Badlands, The War of The Worlds) in the role of Ciri, and Anya Chalotra (Wanderlust, The ABC Murders) in the role of Yennefer.
