Netflix to produce Witcher series

Share

Sean Daniel (of The Mummy and The Expanse) was previously attached to the movie, but is now onboard to produce the Netflix series, along with fellow producer Jason Brown. "We couldn't be more excited about bringing The Witcher saga to Netflix members around the world".

With CD Projekt Red out of the way for the Netflix series, Sapkowski is the only one who will be receiving royalties off the show - assuming he learned from past mistakes before signing this contract, that is. The series has spawned an incredibly popular video game franchise and has been translated into over twenty languages worldwide.

The Witcher is a collection of right novels and story collections and a major video game franchise about hunters who develop supernatural abilities at a young age in order to battle dead monsters.

"CD Projekt Red is actually not involved in this". We have the early details for you here! "I'm excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life", he added.

That isn't to say that the Netflix series will be completely devoid of influence from the games, as Tomas Baginski will direct at least one episode of the show. Hopefully more information regarding these unanswered questions will follow in the days to come. He apparently expressed his excitement that "The Witcher" TV series is "staying true to the source material and the themes", which he has passionately worked on for over thirty years.

A "The Witcher" TV Series is reportedly in the works over at Netflix. The Witcher games have of course been part of that global popularity, as evidenced by The Wticher 3: Wild Hunt selling six million copies in its first six weeks of release in 2015 and the overall Witcher series having sold more than 25 million copies. Fans of George R.R. Martin's famed book series and David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' HBO adaptation could potentially find themselves in another intriguing story to watch unfold, with all the trimmings.
