The Witcher is an upcoming fantasy drama web television series created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich for Netflix. It is based on the book series of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski. The eight-episode series is set to be released on December 20, 2019.
The Witcher follows the story of Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, who 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.
The inspiration for this series being a fantasy show was to mix a range of styles from the high gothic period but also incorporating renaissance, 19th century and 1930s gothic revival as well as contemporary high fashion and historical clothing from around the world.
