We finally have our hands on the trailer for the highly anticipated Polish-American fantasy drama series, based on the series of novels of the same name, which also spawned a hugely popular series of games. The show has been promised for a couple of years now, and there’s already a Polish TV series based on the books.
If you’re new to the Witcher franchise, all you really need to know is that it’s about a mutated monster hunter called Geralt of Rivia. He’s being played in this series by Henry Cavill – yes, that’s Clark Kent/Superman from the Justice League movie – and if the trailer is anything to go by, we’re in for a tonne of nail-biting action, lashings of violence, brilliant special effects and a rich, immersive backdrop for the fight between Geralt and his foes.
Geralt knows that the worst monsters are humans – but that doesn’t mean that the final shot of the trailer doesn’t give us chills.
