The weather’s getting colder, the weekend’s started and Witcher fans around the globe are preparing to sit down and binge Netflix’ latest production. That’s right, Netflix’s The Witcher has arrived, and so far audience reviews have been positive. 

While critics have been mixed when reviewing The Witcher’s first season, fans have almost unanimous in their praise, with IMDB rating the show as 9.5/10 after 6,157 user reviews. Rotten Tomatoes has also given the show a high audience review score, rating The Witcher ar 88% at the time of writing. 

Netflix’s The Witcher is eight episodes long and each episode lasts between 47-67 minutes, averaging in at around 60 minutes. This means that it will take around eight hours to watch the entire series. 

The Witcher’s TV adaptation is unlike both the franchise’s book and videogame incarnations, sitting somewhere in-between. This is an original incarnation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s work, which means that fans of both the books and games may need to temper their expectations a little. 

Netflix has already greenlit future seasons of The Witcher, showcasing the company’s pride in its production values and certainty of the series’ success. Only time will tell how successful this show will be, but so far, it looks like Netflix has another hit on its hands.
