Here Are Some Previews for ‘The Witcher’
Here’s the official final trailer.
And character introductions:
And here’s a video about writing The Witcher.
Netflix’s official description of The Witcher reads: “Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is 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.”
Another synopsis on Google reads: “The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world in which people often prove more wicked than beasts.”
The Witcher is an amazing story based on an in-depth fantasy world built with care. Each character has a complicated background, and races and species bring along their own stories. Much like Game of Thrones, this series has much political intrigue, prophecy, and vying for leadership and power. If you like Game of Thrones, you will definitely find yourself enjoying The Witcher.
In fact, with all the episodes releasing at once, it might be a good idea to put this in the “binge” category and set aside some time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the series before the holidays.
The Witcher is based on the fantasy book series written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. It follows the story of Geralt of Rivia. There are eight episodes in Season 1 and all the episodes are being released on December 20. The show has been renewed for a second season.
