Comments

The final trailer for The Witcher is here. The hugely-anticipated fantasy adventure show hits Netflix next week, and the new trailer follows this recent promo and these striking posters.

While many of Netflix's recent Witcher videos have focused on Henry Cavill's character of Geralt of Rivia, this trailer gives all the main characters screen time and shows us the epic scale of this fantasy saga. Most notably there's Anya Chalotra as Yennefer and Freya Allan as Ciri, plus Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Adam Levy as Mousesack, and Jaskier Joey Batey. Check it out below:

The Witcher Season 1 is released on December 20. It's already been renewed for Season 2 too, but there's no release yet and don't expect to see it for at least a year.

The show is based on the book series by Andrzej Sapkowski, and in a recent interview with GameSpot, showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich spoke about the complexities of adapting these narratively complex novels. "To me, there are challenges, and there are opportunities. And this, to me, was such a great opportunity," she said. "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."
