Netflix will develop and produce a new show based on The Witcher Saga, the series of eight novels by Andrzej Sapkowski that inspired the hugely popular CD Projekt Red RPG games.

Sapkowski - who is famously dismissive of adaptations of his novels - will serve as a creative consultant on the series. “I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories," he explained in a press release, "staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing."

Tomas Baginski - who directed the intro videos for all three Witcher games, as well as the Cyberpunk 2077 teaser trailer - will direct at least one episode per season.

It's not clear as yet what specific stories the series will follow. Executive producers Sean Daniel and Jason Brown (The Expanse), said: “The Witcher stories follow an unconventional family that comes together to fight for truth in a dangerous world. The characters are original, funny and constantly surprising and we can’t wait to bring them to life at Netflix, the perfect home for innovative storytelling.”

Platige Image, a Polish production and visual effects house will co-produce. Executive producers Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko emphasised that the books' subtexts will not be lost in the adaptation: "There is a moral and intellectual depth in these books which goes beyond genre. It is a story about today and today’s challenges, hidden under a fantasy cover. It is a story about us, about the monster and the hero inside all of our hearts.”

No release date, casting, or further directorial choices have been revealed at time of writing.

this would have made a great epic movie, in the style of lord of the rings...
The game is great.

He gets a consultancy fee, probably will for the series too. as well as a "creator" credit and probably; "exec producer" He's not going to be hard up.

This could be the next Game of Thrones if done properly, Ive never read the books, only the last 2 games Witcher 3 was very very good, but not as good as some make out. although I loved Gwent.

More likely the next 'Vikings' though, lets be honest.

Let's hope that 15-20 minutes of every episode consists of Geralt tediously gathering plants, squinting at tiny text and cursing an unresponsive horse

Yeah, he doesn't really look the part for Geralt does he? No reason he couldn't do a fan-service cameo as a bartender or something though
