Man of Steel star Henry Cavill is returning to television as the lead Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher, Netflix’s drama series based on the fantasy saga of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski.

The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia (Cavill), 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.

Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s The Defenders, Umbrella Academy) serves as writer, executive producer and showrunner of the series, which was announced last year. Set as directors of the series are Alik Sakharov (House of Cards, Game of Thrones), who will helm a total of four episodes, including the first one, and also will serve as executive producer. Alex Garcia Lopez (Marvel’s Luke Cage, Fear The Walking Dead) and Charlotte Brändström (Outlander, Counterpart) will direct two episodes each.

Sapkowski will serve as creative consultant on the series. Sean Daniel, Jason Brown and Kathy Lingg at Hivemind Entertainment are exec producers along with The Fallen’s Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko from Polish production and VFX house Platige Image.

Is this based on the video game series? (I don't know too much about that, but my husband watches video game videos...)

No, it's based on a Polish book series that was later adapted into a video game series. The video games have become more popular than the novels, probably because there hadn't been an English translation until fairly recently, and that's why most people believe the upcoming Netflix show is based on a video game.
