The Witcher television series on Netflix is confirmed to be for a mature audience. Executive producer and showrunner of the upcoming The Witcher television series Lauren Hissrich recently watched a cut of the show and her final judgment was that it’s not something you can watch with your children so be aware.
This mature approach to the TV series is good news for everyone who knows the nature of The Geralt of Rivia. The Witcher games are also not for kids as Geralt is very much into the ladies and the number of sex scenes that we saw in The Witcher 3 is pretty high. Netflix is doing a good job to make it clear to the public to not expect another family-friendly movie or a TV show like Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter.
It’s now officially confirmed that Henry Cavill will be playing the role of Geralt in the TV series cast. There has been mixed response to this decision but personally, I see him as the perfect fit. Henry is a big fan of games and books. After seeing his first look as Geralt in the latest Witcher TV series trailer we have no doubt left. If you don’t agree then you should check out our list of actors who could play Geralt better than Henry Cavill.
The main cast of the TV series has been revealed. Ciri is being played by Freya Allen after Netflix looking for a minority actress. Yennefer will be played by Anya Chalotra. There have been many concerns about the cast included and that’s why the showrunner Lauren Hissrich left social media but thank God she’s back to talk about the upcoming project.
Production for The Witcher TV series stared a few months back. There’s no release date yet but we are expecting it to arrive sometime late in 2019 or early 2020 as Lauren Hissrich says that they are working on a breakneck speed.
We at least know that the TV series will feature a total of eight episodes. The production seems to be going smooth and its approach to delivering a mature experience can be considered as a move in the right direction.
