You might not be zooming into Gerald's behind again anytime soon, but you'll see him on your screens again. Just on Netflix, instead.
Coming as an official announcement on Platige's website, the group has confirmed production on a 'The Witcher' has begun with the original novel creator - and terrible negotiator - Andrzej Sapkowski slotted in as Creative Consultant.
The short announcement confirmed the show as a drama telling the stories of Geralt much like the novels and video games. It isn't some off-shoot side-story brought in to drum up continued interest in the franchise, but another way to tell those stories from the centre of its appeal.
The original novel writer initially sold the rights of the series to Polish video game developer CD Projekt Red thinking it wouldn't pan out in the long term. Seeking an immediate sum rather than continuous royalties is a bad business decision he's still asked about to this day. We can imagine he's gaining a little more out of this silver-screen adventure, but that isn't always the case.
There's no preliminary placeholder release date just yet, but with production having just started there's likely a long road ahead.
