Given the fame of this fantasy franchise, it is unsurprising that people want to bring the series to life to life in the cinema or on television. Netflix has now answered the call and has announced their new Witcher Saga TV series, promising to stay true to the source material and utilise Sapkowski as a creative consultant for the series.  
 
Below is what the series' original creator, Andrzej Sapkowski, had to say about this new development;

I’m excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life.

 

The Witcher is getting its own series on Netflix  

Please note that this new series has nothing to do with The Witcher game series, with CD Projekt Red having no involvement in the project. This means that there will no doubt be creative differences between the games and the TV series, given the fact that the games already diverge somewhat from the series source material.

I think they already are involved as if I recall they actually do own the rights for the franchise when it comes to everything except books and print. They probably just involved Andrzej in the process as a gesture of good will. I mean why wouldn't they, looking at the success of GoT and George R.R. Martin's involvement.Quote

Yeah CDPR is involved because they own all the rights to it. But it's probably only for certain things and it would mostly be the writers I'd say.

Can't wait to watch this. I'm currently about halfway through the 2nd book out of like 8 I think.Quote
