The Witcher has taken refuge on Netflix

Image In the fall of 2015, the Polish studio Platige Image announced its desire to make a full-length film based on the series of books The Witcher Saga by Andrzej Sapkowski , however there have been no news about the project since then. It seems that the producers have decided to change the format of the film adaptation - now they are planning, together with the online service Netflix , to create a series about Geralt from Rivia. The information portal IGN informs about it.

The author of the original himself will act as a consultant for the project.“I am incredibly happy that Netflix will undertake the adaptation of my works and transfer to the screens the material on which I have been working for over 30 years”, Sapkowski admitted .

The Witcher Saga tells the story of Geralt of Rivia - a hunter for monsters that pose a threat to ordinary people. It is not yet clear which books from the original series will form the basis of the series. However, according to representatives of Platige , the film adaptation is intended to convey not only the plot of the original source, but also the subtext embedded in it.


“These books have a moral and intellectual depth that goes far beyond the genre. This is a story about the modern world and its problems, hidden under the cover of fantasy, a story about all of us - about a monster and a hero that is in every person ", - said in an official statement of the company.

The new show will be executive produced by Sean Daniel (The Mummy) and Jason F. Brown (Expansion). At least one episode will be led by Tomek Baginski, who is well acquainted with the The Witcher universe, who has created introductory videos for all three video games about Geralt .
