In addition to Cavill, The Witcher will also star 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.

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. Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s The Defenders, Umbrella Academy) is the showrunner and will also executive produce along with Sakharov.

The cast of The Witcher will be taking the stage at San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H later on this month. The series will be part of the Netflix presentations on Friday, July 19.

The logline for the upcoming series is as follows:

[row]“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.”[/row]
