Henry Cavill is returning to the small screen with the lead role of Geralt of Rivia in Netflix's adaptation of The Witcher. Based on the eight novels and story collections by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski instead of the video games, it was first announced in May 2017 that Netflix picked up the series

Executive producers Sean Daniel and Jason Brown describe the series as:

"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, the perfect home for innovative storytelling."

The first season will run eight episodes and see Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter, who goes on a journey with a powerful sorceress and young princess holding a dark secret.

Netflix has not announced a release date.
