What to expect in Netflix The Witcher Series?
There is a lot to choose from, but there’s a possibility that the Netflix adaptation of The Witcher will mainly focus on the five novels. So you will get to see a lot of Geralt and Ciri. Writer Sapkowski will be the creative consultant of the show. He said,
I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories, staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over 30 years writing.
Jason Brown and Sean Daniel, the executive producers of the show, said that the story will revolve around an unconventional family that will fight the truth in this dangerous world. The characters of the show are funny, original and will surprise you constantly.
Leaked script of Netflix The Witcher Series
Casting of The Witcher show is underway and the scripts are out with the actors and agents. Unsurprisingly, two Yennefer scenes casting scripts are already out. Here’s a little snippet from that:
Really it’s about the creamy whiskers … and the way muffin crumbs get stuck there… it truly makes me want to vomit. Then there’s the creeping. Always creeping into the beds of chambermaids who do not want to clean your dick with their bodies. Creep creep creep. And on top of that, you’re very, very dumb.
