via Patrick’s old stomping grounds: The Witcher is Getting a Netflix Series
Not much is known about the series yet. Anderzej Sapkowski seems to be fully on board. It is ostensibly based on the books, not the games, but the effects studio that made the games’ cinematics is doing the CGI for the series, and those cinematics’ director is directing the series.
This could be amazing if it mixes the kings vs sorcerers political intrigue that Geralt keeps getting swept up in in the novels with the Fractured Fairy Tale, monster-of-the-week style of the short story collections.
For the record, my favorite contract from the books is the play on The Little Mermaid, in which the incredulous mermaid is not so quick to give up her life in the sea.
