Netflix is always looking to bring more and more interesting shows to the small screen and everyone is also looking to be the next Game of Thrones. When it comes to adult fantasy the next entry to try and snatch the crown from Game of Thrones will be The Witcher on Netflix.
Netflix hosted a huge panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con today and showed off a ton of footage to attendees. We will have a detailed write-up of what we saw soon but Netflix dropped a teaser trailer for all of us to see. This is the same teaser that dropped at the end of the Hall H panel.
We still don’t have a release date but Netflix likes to tell us those things like a month before it happens. Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich mentioned during the panel that they are still in post-production so late fall to early winter is our best guess for a release date.
Summary: Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
The Witcher, created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, stars Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, Jodhi May, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Adam Levy, MyAnna Buring Mimi, Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, and Emma Appleton. It will premiere in late 2019.
