Netflix has released the first trailer for The Witcher, a live-action series based on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski‘s popular book series of the same name which was previously adapted into the hit video game series, also of the same name.
The series stars Henry Cavill (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) as Geralt of Rivia, also known as the White Wolf. Geralt is a witcher, someone who is trained mentally, physically, and magically from a young age, and undergoes genetic modification. This gives them immense skills, which they often use to work as monster hunters for hire.

Based on the best-selling fantasy series, 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.
Starring alongside Cavill is Freya Allan as Ciri and Anya Chalotra as Yennefer. Jodhi May, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Adam Levy, MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, and Millie Brady also star.
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (Marvel’s Daredevil, The Defenders) is the showrunner and executive producer, and Alik Sakharov (Game of Thrones, House of Cards), Alex Garcia Lopez (Fear the Walking Dead, Daredevil), and Charlotte Brändström (Arrow, Outlander) directed the episodes for season one.
