There’s no official premiere date yet, but The Witcher is set to launch in the fourth quarter of the year!
VARIETY – Netflix new live-action series based on “The Witcher” will launch in the company’s fourth quarter, which runs from October to December, the company’s chief content officer noted in an earnings call this week.
Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos was responding to a question about Neflix 2019 line-up when he brought up the timing for the show, which is based on a series of books made internationally popular through successful video game adaptations.
“Well, definitely in the third quarter, we’ve got new episodes and new seasons of some of our most loved and most watched shows on Netflix, ‘Stranger Things,’ ‘Casa de Papel,’ ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ ’13 Reasons Why,’ ‘Elite,’ which was a big hit for us right out of Spain, a new season from Ryan Murphy of ‘The Politician,’ a brand new show on Netflix that we think our audiences are going to love,” he said. “And then you start seeing later in the fourth quarter some of our bigger film investments coming through like ‘Irishman,’ like ‘6 Underground’ and also a big new original series that we’re currently shooting in Hungary called ‘The Witcher,’ that is an enormous European IP, very popular game and Book IP, that we think is going to make a really fun global series.”
Henry will be toplining Netflix’s adaptation of The Witcher book series. During the recent press tour, he was asked if he would be interested in playing Geralt and as a gamer and a fan, Henry said yes. Last month, digital artist Bosslogic posted a fan-art of how Henry could possibly look like as Geralt, and it looked amazing. Fast-forward to today, it’s official! Henry also posted about it on his Instagram, and we could feel his excitement from here. Looking forward to this project already.
