If they can embrace and lead the groups of misfits they find themselves in, they have a chance of surviving the baptism of fire and finding one another again.

Based on the fantasy book series by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher has become a major tentpole franchise for Netflix. In addition to this main TV series, they’ve also made an animated movie, and a prequel series, The Witcher: Blood Origin, which premiered at the end of 2022.
