Witcher Saga is a series of eight fantasy novels and story collections by Andrzej Sapkowski. The series center on “witchers” – hunters who develop supernatural abilities at a young age to battle deadly monsters. The books have been published in 20 languages and have since spawned a video game franchise. Now the books are being adapted into a television series by Netflix. Sapkowski, who is serving as creative consultant on the series, said of the project:
“I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories, staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing. I’m excited about our efforts together as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life.”
The series is executive produced by Sean Daniel (The Mummy franchise) and Jason Brown (The Expanse) at the Sean Daniel Company with Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko from Polish production and VFX house Platige Image.
Daniel and Brown added:
“The Witcher stories follow an unconventional family that comes together to fight for truth in a dangerous world. The characters are original, funny and constantly surprising and we can’t wait to bring them to life at Netflix.”
Stay tuned, kids…
