The Witcher saga is being turned into a television series.
Netflix announced this week that they will be adapting the series of novels by Andrzej Sapkowski into a 10-episode series. The eight novels collectively known as The Witcher saga, centers on hunters who develop supernatural abilities at a young age to battle deadly monsters.
“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,” said Sapkowski. “I’m excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life.”
Sapkowski will serve as a creative consultant on the series. Sean Daniel and Jason Brown will serve as executive producers, along with Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko.
“The Witcher stories follow an unconventional family that comes together to fight for truth in a dangerous world,” said Sean Daniel and Jason Brown. “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.”
