The show stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, and he’s going to be incredible and going to feature in some very brutal action sequences.
There’s now been some talk about what’s to come in the upcoming series and what’s going to happen in it, and The Witcher’s showrunner, Lauren S. Hissrich, has revealed that fans of the book and the video games will get to see new monster in this series.
Here’s what Hissrich had to say about the new monsters in The Witcher Season 1 in a new video posted onto Netflix’s YouTube channel.
It’s funny, ’cause monsters are huge in The Witcher, but it’s actually one of the things that we’re trying to hold out of the teasers and trailers as much as possible, because we think there’s a great element of surprise for existing fans who don’t know what stories we’re playing with and what monsters we’re playing with. And also, there’s a couple of new monsters that we’ve come up with based on a lot of sort of Polish folklore.
The Witcher Season 1 is going to feature some cool new monsters
The show’s executive producer, Tomek Bagiński was also in the video and he agreed with Hissrich and echoed her sentiments on the new monsters and teased that fans of the books and the video games will be very pleased with and surprised by these new monsters.
I’m really hoping that people will be very surprised with some of our choices.
The Witcher Season 1 will hit Netflix on December 20th, 2019, so it’s literally only days away from release, and it’s all getting very exciting.
I remember when Netflix announced they were doing this and I just could not believe that they were going to try and bring Andrzej Sapkowski’s books to life in live-action.
