The Witcher series will be based on Sapkowski’s eight novels and story collections, the source material for CD Projekt Red’s video game series of the same name.
“Andrzej Sapkowski has created a rich and memorable world, at once magical and familiar,” said Erik Barmack, Netflix vice president, international series, in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited about bringing Netflix members around the world.”
“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 thirty years writing,” added Sapkowski. “I’m excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life.”
Sean Daniel and Jason Brown, both executive producers on Syfy’s The Expanse, will serve as executive producers on The Witcher. Platige Image’s Tomek Bagiński and Jarek Sawko will also produce, while Sapkowski will serve as a creative consultant on the series. CD Projekt Red was not mentioned in the company’s press release.
Platige Image is based in Warsaw, Poland. The company consists of 150 professional artists, designers and producers with “deep expertise in animation and special effects work,” according to Platige. The company’s video game work includes animation shorts and promotional videos for titles like Prey, League of Legends, Frostpunk and Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
