Netflix To Produce 'The Witcher' TV Series
Most gamers recognize "The Witcher" as a top-selling action-RPG franchise. However, the games are actually adapted from Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski's fantasy novel series. The author has written and expanded the story and lore of the novels since 1986. "The Witcher" started to gain international fame when it was adapted into a series of video games developed by CD Projekt Red. Now, it appears that the "The Witcher" is getting a TV series produced by Netflix.
According to reports, Netflix will produce "The Witcher" TV series in English instead of Polish. It is understandable since the streaming giant wants it to appeal to globally. Netflix has also gotten an Oscar-nominated director Tomek Baginski to helm the project, which just shows how committed it is to make the show successful. Moreover, Game Rant confirms that the author of the novels himself, Andrzej Sapkowski, is on board as a creative consultant for the series.
"I'm thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories," says Andrzej Sapkowski. He apparently expressed his excitement that "The Witcher" TV series is "staying true to the source material and the themes," which he has passionately worked on for over thirty years. According to the author, he believes that his novels made the game very popular and not the other way around. Sapkowski also stated that his books were already published in the West before the video games came out.
Additionally, the author also expressed his concern that the existing adaptations of "The Witcher" novels seem to have strayed from the source material too much to his liking. Meanwhile, Forbes has claimed that Netflix and Andrzej Sapkowski appear to look forward to the new project. The author was reportedly thrilled about the upcoming TV series. Netflix vice president, Eric Barmack, thinks that Sapkowski "has created a rich and memorable world, at once magical and familiar.
"The Witcher" fans already hold the book and the video games with high regard. Therefore, it is understandable for most people to get excited about a Netflix series. The expanse of Geralt's adventures would hardly all fit into a single film, so fans believe that a TV series might do the novel some justice.
