Netflix’s live-action adaptation of The Witcher is currently in production (filming), and we’re getting pretty excited.
Series showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich has been one of our best sources of information about series; confirmations of casting, production updates, and personal tidbits about how the process is going.
Today, Hissrich shared this image on Twitter, which teases her possible cameo in the series.
“Sometimes, you get tired of being behind the scenes.
And then — you join the party.”

The series will follow the original book series by Andrzej Sapkowski, Henry Cavill will be playing the lead character Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan will be playing Ciri, and Anya Chalotra as Yennefer.
Other known cast members (so far) include Jodhi May (Game of Thrones) as Queen Calanthe, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson (Fortitude) as her husband the knight Eist, Adam Levy (Knightfall) as the druid Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as the head of the magical academy at Aretuza Tissaia, Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read as novice sorcerers, and Millie Brady as the outcast Princess Renfri.
We’re expecting the series to have a possible 2019 release, but, some reports indicate it could be as late as 2020.
