It looks like Superman himself, Henry Cavill, will be leading the cast of Netflix’s upcoming “The Witcher” saga, playing the role of Geralt of Rivia. “The Witcher” is based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s series of fantasy short stories and novels and will consist of 8 episodes.
Alik Sakharov, Charlotte Brändström, and Alex Garcia Lopez are set to direct the series from showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.
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.
