Netflix has unveiled the first look at its upcoming adaptation of book and video game series ‘The Witcher’, and it looks like fans of the game will be happy with how it’s all shaping up.
Sharing teasers of the three lead characters; Geralt (Henry Cavill), Yennefer (Anya Cholatra), and Ciri (Freya Allan), the Netflix series promises to be an epic show and could be just the show to fill the Game of Thrones-shaped void in our lives.
Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, ‘The Witcher’ is described as being an epic tale of fate and family.
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.

On July 19, the series will head to San Diego Comic Con for a panel that will divulge on what we can expect from ‘The Witcher’ when it premieres on Netflix later this year.
Moderated by accomplished actress and host and beloved sci-fi fan Yvette Nicole Brown, the panel will include cast members Cavill, Chalotra, and Allan, alongside showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.
Other cast members to be announced for the series include Jodhi May, Adam Levey, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, and Emma Farren.
