The much anticipated TV series of Netflix has created quite the hype and according to reports, the release date has been leaked.
'The Witcher' is one of the most anticipated shows that Netflix will be coming up with and apparently, the release date of the show has been leaked. It looks like, the viewers will have to wait just over three months, i.e., 97 days in order to see the series on their screen. In other words, 'The Witcher' will be coming in right in time for Christmas and therefore the perfect present you can gift upon yourself.
According to a report by Redanian Intelligence, a site that is primarily dedicated to reporting news on The Witcher, the post was shared on the Netflix Netherlands’ Twitter and Facebook accounts before getting deleted shortly afterward. 'The Witcher' appeared along with a list of other tv-shows that comes under the Netflix Umbrella like El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie and The Crown, alongside a caption which read, "The wait is almost over, *so many* nights sleep for these titles." Since the time of the post, the schedule has been updated and there is no way of knowing that the leaked information is true until and unless it is officially verified by Netflix.
The series is based on a series of stories by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, which follows the story of Geralt of Rivia, who is a monster killer and goes into a series of adventures. The television show is just one adaptation of the novels and the gamers having long been enthralled by the land of The Continent. The official synopsis of the show reads, "Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts."
Superman actor Henry Cavil is going to star in the role of Geralt of Rivia, Anya Chalotra will play sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg, and Freya Allan will star as powerful young princess Ciri. The show has been described suitable for adult viewing so you can expect a lot of R-rated scenes. The showrunner Lauren Hissrich as described the show saying that it has a lot of adult content and be a little careful of the kids when they are watching the show. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Hissrich said that it was very important to her that ‘any violence or sex drives the story and is not there just for shock value’. Going by the looks of it, it seems like there is a lot to look forward to from this series, the main question is, till how long?
