'The Witcher' Netflix Series

Netflix is developing and producing an English-language TV show based on The Witcher. The franchise started life as a series of fantasy novels by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, before being turned into a number of critically acclaimed video games. Now itís coming to the small screen, although there are no details on when the show might arrive.

As long as they don't rape the lore and change the narrative. Fine.

Though I will lol if people complain about no black characters like they did with The Witcher 3 like mongs

Re: The Witcher is being made into a TV show by Netflix

Seems like a great idea.

But I thought the exact same thing Makoto did. It'd be really dumb to change what has worked so well for starters. That's the practical money making aspect. The other reason is artistic. Why would you change this thing to something it's not just because what it is might be offensive? Do the right thing Netflix and let this be what it is.

MrMister and Shala with some ridiculous unnecessary pessimism. So sick and tired of the negativity on this forum.

This is fantastic news! If Netflix play their cards right they could have a rival to Game of Thrones.

HBO would have been better until netflix can do all the nudity that HBO does

Nudity isn't the key to making a great Witcher series. It's all about production quality and the type of talent you can attract. Netflix more than rivals HBO in those departments.

And besides, as far as I know Netflix has the same freedom when it comes to nudity. They're just not as gratuitous with it as HBO is.

I said seems like a great idea lol. Then I said keep The Witcher the same. Don't change stuff even if it's offensive. This would make for some great dark fantasy.

It was unnecessary though. Why sully the good news with cynicism? A great fantasy series is being made by a platform that has the means and resources to do it justice, lets at least enjoy the moment before we start the inconsequential bickering about how faithful or PC the adaptation is going to be.

Its not the key but its key to the series. There is a ton of TNA in Witcher. But I agree the key will be the production.

Who do want to see as Geralt?

I would try to get Stephen Lang, he would be perfect
