Netflix has unveiled the first poster and photos from their upcoming series “The Witcher” along with the show’s tagline which is ‘The Worst Monsters are the Ones We Create’. Henry Cavill, Anya Cholatra and Freya Allan can be seen as their respective characters in the shots.
Based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s best-selling fantasy novel and video game series “The Witcher”, Cavill plays Geralt of Rivia – a solitary monster hunter, struggling to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. 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.
Jodhi May, Mimi Ndiweni, Millie Brady, Adam Levy and MyAnna Buring co-star. Lauren Schmidt Hissrich serves as executive producer and showrunner on the series while Sean Daniel, Jason Brown, Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko also executive produce.
The eight-episode first season will launch sometime in 2020 and Netflix is set to offer a big promotional push for both this show and “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” at San Diego Comic Con with a panel for both series on July 19th. We may potentially see the first trailer online at that time as well.
