Filming has wrapped on the first season of Netflix’s Witcher show, an adaptation of famously surly author Andrzej Sapkowski’s book series about a professional monster-hunter — Geralt of Rivia — making his way in a medieval-esque world where the people can be worse than the creatures. Now all we can do is wait.
UPDATE: And now the post is taken down, which pretty much means it definitely gave something away. Here’s what it said:
Finally back in the UK and, for me at least, that’s officially a wrap on The Witcher. Thanks to everyone on the crew for an amazing, if tough, experience. Now it’s over to the directors, the editors and our fabulous VFX team who all have a great deal of work to do to get it ready for air in December. Good luck everyone, can’t wait to see it.
The directors, editors and VFX people are getting the show “ready for air in December.” And there you have it.
A December drop date jives with what we’ve heard before about the show debuting in the last few months of the year. Set your watches. Your Witcher watches.
The Witcher stars Henry “I used to play Superman” Cavill as Geralt, Anya Chalotra as his on-again off again sorceress love interest Yennefer, and Freya Allan as his young charge Ciri. Plus a lot of other people — this is a big cast — but they’re three of the most important. If you’re interested in prepping, we’re reading through the first book in the Witcher saga proper, Blood of Elves, over here.
