Netflix has been hard at work (hopefully) on its interpretation of the beloved The Witcher series.
The books-turned-games have now been transformed for the small screen, and it’s been reported that filming wrapped up earlier this month.
We already know that Netflix is planning on releasing the television series later this year, with the company confirming a late-2019 release for the show during an investor call.
During the call, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandso gave a release window of Q4 2019, meaning it’ll be hitting our screens anytime from October 2019.
It looks like things might have just gotten a lot more specific though, as a reported leak has offered up the release date as Friday 20th December 2019.
Recapped seems to be pretty in the know about the Netflix series, having been the site to break the news of the castings of Henry Cavill as the one and only Geralt, and Anya Chalotra as Yennefer.
Of course, we can’t know whether or not this is the correct date for The Witcher until Netflix confirms it, but it seems to make sense.
Either way, it’s coming soon and we’re excited.
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.”
Although hardcore Witcher fans are reluctant about the show, here’s hoping it’s going to be another success like Stranger Things, and not a burning heap of trash-fire like Netflix’s Death Note.
