Am I being hypnotized?

Netflix's next big original series is none other than The Witcher, which arrives on December 20. Based on the Polish novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, the show will follow the characters Geralt, a witcher who hunts monsters, Yennefer, a powerful sorceress, and Ciri, a child of destiny. The books feature a complex narrative that the show will have to deal with, and while we're still about two weeks away from the release of the show, The Witcher Twitter account released some images from the upcoming series that are mesmerizing. Check them out below.

Henry Cavill stars as Geralt, who was created by fear, Freya Allan plays Ciri, who was created by prophecy, and Anya Chalotra plays Yennefer, who was created by power. All of these captions allude to each character's backstory, which we will see in Season 1 of the show.

Because the upcoming Netflix series is based on Sapkowski's works, there is a lot of ground to cover between the characters and the world they inhabit. However, that didn't sway showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich from tackling this challenge. "To me, there are challenges, and there are opportunities. And this, to me, was such a great opportunity," Hissrich told GameSpot during a recent interview. "You have all of these short stories presented in the first couple of books, in The Last Wish and in Sword of Destiny. There is no narrative thread between them, so Geralt doesn't grow and change that much between the stories, because that's not how they were originally written."
