Witcher TV Series in Development At Netflix

Before The Witcher was a video game, it was a book — and now the original book series is being adapted for TV by Netflix.

Polish novelist Andrzej Sapkowski’s series of novels and short story collections focuses on “witchers,” or monster hunters with supernatural powers.

“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 thirty years writing,” Sapkowski, who will serve as a creative consultant on the series, said in a statement. “I’m excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life.”

Wasn't it Sapkowski who said "If we level the field between books and their adaptations in other media, only the former can be the ones telling a story." and "A story can only be contained in a book."?

As a Polish, all can I say that Sapkowski is a douchebag, no one knows what is in his head.
He drives people crazy, and his approach toward video game, was criticized in Poland.

Let's see how this works as a series. This could go either way. Very good or very bad.

Mads would be a pretty good Geralt.
