Netflix is turning the Witcher books into a series. The Witcher series created by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski will be involved in the production. Unlike the video game series which he currently doesn’t earn anything from, this time time around Andrzej will be heavily invested and make sure the series follow his vision.
“Andrzej Sapkowski has created a rich and memorable world, at once magical and familiar,” said Erik Barmack, Netflix Vice President, international series. “We couldn’t be more excited about bringing Netflix members around the world.” “I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories, staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing,” said Sapkowski. “I’m excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life.” Andrzej Sapkowski will serve as a creative consultant on the series.
There’s no current ETA on when the series is coming but it’s definitely happening at least. Though don’t be surprised if it takes a different approach to the game series.
