Netflix have released the new full trailer for the upcoming series, “The Witcher,” starring Henry Cavill (“Mission: Impossible – Fallout“) as Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter from Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy action stories. His novels were also translated into popular role-playing video games. The series, however, will take source material from Sapkowski’s books.

Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together

Character images were released in early July, just a few weeks ahead of the show’s SDCC panel. At the time, a release date was unknown but now fans can relish in the wait as the series is set for a winter release onto streaming.
