Hopefully; the pilot script is supposedly complete.

I don't watch tv series much (never saw a single episode of Game of Thrones), but seeing how much I loved the videogame Witcher 3, I'd definitely watch this if it came out.

The Witcher Netflix Adaptation's Pilot Script Officially Completed

Quote:
The exciting news that The Witcher's Geralt of Rivia is making his way onto Netflix just got a bit more exciting with the revelation that the pilot script is officially complete and ready to go!

With Daredevil and The Defenders writer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich at the helm for writing the script, Hissrich recently took to Twitter to give an update on the series project and it comes bearing amazing news! At the end of the photo revealed in her social media post, "End of Pilot" can be seen with the below caption, "it's been a big week, The Witcher fans ..."

Ok, I read the article, still don't know what this series will be about. Do these people hunt down witches? Or are they witches? Would you explain, Suburban?

It's based on a video game that is based on a series of Fantasy novels. Originally written in Polish, if I remember correctly, and I've heard the English translation isn't very good. But I've never read them. My older kids love the video game.

And no, it's not about witch hunters. It's medieval Fantasy, but inspired more by eastern European culture. The Witchers are monster hunters. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Witcher

This has the potential to be good. But coming from Netflix .. ? I just don't know if they have the budget to make a really good Fantasy series. Aside from Game of Thrones, most Fantasy TV shows have looked cheap and cheesey.

They’re basically monster hunters...humans who underwent mutations (usually as children) to become extra strong and agile, also able to ingest potions which make them stronger against certain monsters but would kill normal humans. There’s also witches and sorcerers in the stories who he befriends (and loves). The game had extraordinary atmosphere and great storylines...hopefully the series the same.
