The Witcher is being adapted into a TV series for Netflix, according to an announcement made by Platige Image, a production company that worked on the video game series developed by CD Projekt.

According to a statement on Platige’s website, Andrzej Sapkowski, writer of the eight-part novel series that inspired the games, will be working on the English language drama series.

“Andrzej Sapkowski has created a rich and memorable world, at once magical and familiar,” said Erik Barmack, Netflix’s vice president of international series.

Sapkowski, who will serve as creative consultant on the series, added: “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. I’m excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life.”

Sean Daniel (The Expanse) and Jason Brown (The Expanse) are executive producers on the project, alongside Tomek Baginski, who has worked on Oscar nominated short The Cathedral, and Jarek Sawko.

“The Witcher stories follow an unconventional family that comes together to fight for truth in a dangerous world,” explained Daniel and Brown. “The characters are original, funny, and constantly surprising, and we can’t wait to bring them to life at Netflix, the perfect home for innovative storytelling.”
