The Witcher TV show

A movie adaptation of the popular fantasy video game The Witcher has been in the works for years, but last year, Netflix announced the streaming service was developing a TV adaptation. Now the writer of the planned series, Lauren S. Hissrich, has confirmed on Twitter that she’s finished her first draft of the pilot script. Plus, she’s revealed detailed breakdowns for characters who could appear in the show, so fans of the games (and the Andrzej Sapkowski-penned books on which the games are based) will almost certainly want to check this out.

The Witcher Netflix Series

Netflix has announced that they’re adapting The Witcher into a new series and gamers around the world rejoiced.

But The Witcher was a series of fantasy books written by Andrzej Sapkowskit long before it was a game! With five novels and two short story collections (none of which, humorously, are called The Witcher) set in this world of monsters and monster hunters, there is a ton of material to mine for a TV series.

Film adaptations of popular video games are often ill-advised, with nary a successful video game movie to date. It’s a good thing then, that the fantasy video game trilogy The Witcher is actually based on a series of best-selling novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, and that it will be turned into a television series rather than a film.

‘The Witcher’ Movie in the Works For 2017

the witcher movie

A movie adaptation of The Witcher is on the way and it’s easy to see why. Originally a well-regarded series of novels and stories by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, which were then adapted into a trilogy of critically acclaimed video games, this series has a huge scope, complex characters, and the kind of lore so fascinating you want to explore every nook and cranny to learn more. The world of The Witcher is full of monsters and action and violence and intrigue and sex and grizzled warriors trudging through harsh landscapes. There’s a movie here.

However, a proper adaptation of the game series would be several hours of the main character, Geralt of Rivia, avoiding the main plot so he can assist random people with their problems and aimlessly wander the landscape. It wouldn’t be a Witcher movie unless there’s about 30 minutes of herb collecting, followed by 45 minutes of potion-making. The fans demand it.

More information about the Witcher movie can be found after the jump.
