Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher universe is going to be turned into a TV show for Netflix in case you didn’t know. While the show is a long way off, fans will be happy to know that things are moving forward swimmingly.

Lead writer Lauren Hissrich announced the show’s writer’s room officially opened today, while she announced the names of the show’s co-writers.

We don’t know specifics of the meeting, but we do know the day was full of ‘ideas and banter and cupcakes and creativity and darkness and champagne’. That’s a lot of ‘ands’. It has been confirmed that Jenny Klein, who wrote for Jessica Jones, is also on the writing team.

The show has yet to have a working title, and in her own tweet stated she was ‘super stoked’ to be writing with Hissrich and the others.

CD Project Red was responsible for popularising the source material through their three games. The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt was released in 2015, with its last DLC coming out in mid-2016. It remains one of this writer’s favourite games of the decade. However, the series will adapt the books directly and be completely different from the game.

No actors are attached to the production yet, but we should have those details soon, hopefully.

Geralt of Rivia, the hero of the game and the book is expected to be in the show and isn’t expected to premiere until 2020 at the earliest. Season one, confirmed by Hissrich, will span eight episodes and will be filmed in Eastern Europe.

Geralt is also set to make an appearance later this year in the next Soul Calibre game.
