Netflix’s upcoming fantasy adventure ‘The Witcher’ is all set for a December 20, 2019 release. Based on the best-selling fantasy book series of the same name, created by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, the series is expected to be Netflix’s answer to Game of Thrones.
The story revolves around the popular fantasy character Geralt of Rivia (a witcher) which has already been adapted into a video game series. Henry Cavill plays the character of Geralt, a monster hunter who travels around a mysterious world named Continent.

Official Synopsis – The Witcher
Based on the best-selling fantasy series, 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.
We are not too sure whether ‘The Witcher’ will also cover the origin of the protagonist, like how he became a witcher and how he gained such superhuman skills. However, we will definitely see his struggle for identity, whether he is a human or has become a monster, or simply a mutant created by magic.
Nevertheless, from the series trailer, it looks great with action, visuals, frightening creatures, and fascinating characters. So, get ready for the fights between the witcher and monsters.
