The Witcher is a series of dark fantasy novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, that follows the exploits of Geralt of Rivia. Witchers use swords and supernatural abilities to kill wild beasts and monsters.
The Witcher is most known in the west for its popular video game adaptations. However, Netflix’s TV series will be pulling from the original books and not from the game. Man of Steel actor Henry Cavil will be staring as Geralt. From the trailer audiences can expect a badass epic fantasy this coming year.
