The Witcher was always going to be one of Netflix’s biggest shows, and that’s exactly what has happened.
The show is based on a series of books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski and a series of video games by Projekt CD Red, and it’s basically Netflix’s answer to Game of Thrones.
However, I will say it, it’s so much more bonkers than Game of Thrones, and that’s one reason why I love it so much.
Turns out that viewers have really loved it, and one of the reasons people might be liking it so much is because Henry Cavill is the lead in the show.
He plays Geralt Of Rivia in the show, who’s what’s known as a ‘Witcher’. Witchers go around the continent trying to find monsters and kill them.
However, for some reason, people don’t like them, even though they’re ridding the world of scary monsters.
Now, according to Business Insider, The Witcher is one of Netflix’s most-watched TV shows.
The only show being binged more than The Witcher on Netflix is Stranger Things, which isn’t really surprising.

This is pretty mad, and Netflix also revealed via Twitter that The Witcher is the fourth most-watch TV show of 2019 which is mad considering that it was only released eleven days before the end of the year.
