“Witcher” Series At Least Two Years Away

Those keenly anticipating Netflix’s planned event series adaptation of “The Witcher” franchise, you’re in for a long wait.

Polish website NaEkraine (via ComicBookMovie) reports that according to producer Erik Barmack, the series won’t be released on the streaming service until at least 2020 as right now additional script polishing has pushed out the timetable a bit.

Screenwriter and producer Lauren S. Hissrich has finished writing the pilot episode and is visiting Poland to meet Andrzej Sapowski, who wrote the original novels which in turn inspired the popular video game series. She adds on Twitter that further work will be done after visiting the area and talking with Sapowski.
