Netflix will be attempting their own Game of Thrones fantasy series as they’ve announced they’ll produce a series based on Andrzej Sapkowski‘s Witcher saga. A series of Polish horror fantasy novels that spawned a wave of successfully epic open world video games, that match the violence and sex of Thrones.
We’ve previously mentioned the potential of the material and seeing it land on Netflix is a solid consolation prize to seeing a bunch of films.
Here are some of the details via Deadline.
Sapkowski will serve as creative consultant on the series. Sean Daniel (The Mummy franchise) and Jason Brown (The Expanse) at the Sean Daniel Company are exec producers along with The Fallen’s Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko from Polish production and VFX house Platige Image.
Daniel and Brown added: “The Witcher stories follow an unconventional family that comes together to fight for truth in a dangerous world. The characters are original, funny and constantly surprising and we can’t wait to bring them to life at Netflix.”
