After MONTHS of speculating, Netflix has seemingly confirmed a release date for one of its most highly-anticipated series of all time: The Witcher. The only slight problem is that the service quickly removed all evidence of it happening.

As reported by Redanian Intelligence [via VG24/7], the ‘mistake’ was spotted on the official Netflix Netherlands Twitter and Facebook channels – before disappearing shortly afterwards.

The announcements shared on the pages suggested the show will be launching on the streaming platform, December 17, 2019.

The post, which hasn’t been confirmed or denied by Netflix, lists a countdown of series and movies dropping on the platform throughout the rest of 2019.


The tweet, posted on September 11, states that there’s “97 sleeps” left until the release of The Witcher, putting the launch date for the adaptation at December 17.

Whether or not there’s any truth to the rumour we’ll have to wait and see, but we do know the show is expected to be available at the end of the year, so the timing does make sense.

The upcoming show’s official premise reads: “Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.

“But 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.”

The show will star Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer and Freya Allan as Ciri. It’s been confirmed that the series will follow the plot of the original book series as opposed to the CD Projekt Red video games.

Whenever it’s landing on our screens, expect the announcement sooner rather than later! Time is ticking, Netflix…!
