We have known for some time now that Netflix are working on a TV adaptation of ‘The Witcher’. The streaming giant have stayed pretty quiet about the details, until today.

Netflix have announced Henry Cavill in the titular role. The fantasy epic will be adaptated from a popular video game series of the same name. 

‘The Witcher’ series began in 2007, the most recent, ‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ was released on current gen consoles in 2015.

The story follows Cavill’s character, Geralt of Rivia, as he campaigns to rid the world of evil. Even with a small budget this adaptation could be fantastic. That world is a great resource for the writers to draw from. I am excited to see what comes from this.
