Netflix has announced when its highly-anticipated The Witcher series is set to be released on their service along with a new trailer.
Here’s the company’s description of The Witcher series:
Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
Henry Cavill (Mission Impossible – Fallout, Justice League) plays Geralt of Rivia, with Anya Cholatra (The ABC Murders, Wanderlust) as Yennefer and Freya Allan (The War of the Worlds, Into The Badlands) as Ciri. The series will consist of eight episodes and the show has already been renewed for a second season.
The Witcher is set to release on Netflix on December 20th (the same day as The Rise of Skywalker).
