It’s been more than two years since word got out that Netflix was working on a Witcher TV series. On Monday, the streaming giant shared first looks for three lead characters – Geralt (Henry Cavill), Yennefer (Anya Cholatra) and Ciri (Freya Allan) – and provided fans with their first official glimpse of the series logo and teaser poster.

The teaser post features the tagline, “The worse monsters are the ones we create.”

Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

Notably, the show is being based on the series of books rather than the video games.

Netflix also launched official social media channels for the series, allowing fans to keep up with the latest news on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Netflix adaptation of The Witcher is expected to debut sometime in 2019 although no formal launch date has been provided.

Ehhhh, I don't know I have a feeling due to the director/producer and their incessant need to project their political views through media they create this will be a dumpster fire.

I did like Altered Carbon and I really really hope Netflix is treating this as an Adult series, for some reason I have this great feeling they will shy away from the focused fact Geralt is morally challenged in the society he is in and it boils down to him screwing women, drinking alot of alcohol, and doing drugs while slaying and finding monsters while dealing with those in human skin. Also dealing with the heavy influences of racism and stupidity of both sides of the coin.
