The Witcher is Netflix’s next big gamble, with a budget higher than usual and rumors of a long-term commitment (three seasons in advance, according to Geeks WorldWide’s KC Walsh). During the fantasy series’ much anticipated Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con, the first trailer was released.
Attending the panel was creator and showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich and leads Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra, and Freya Allan.
The Witcher releases in December 2019 on Netflix and stars Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg, and Allan as Ciri.
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.
