Henry Cavill teases fans with a brand new look and character posters from his upcoming Netflix show 'The Witcher'


Netflix has released eight first-look images for The Witcher, its series adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski's book series of the same name, which feature the three central characters: Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Ciri, Princess of Cintra, and Anya Chalotra as the sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg.

Henry stars as Geralt of Rivia, “a solitary monster hunter struggling to find his place in a world”. The pictures feature him with the same armour and a single sword, though the creator and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich hinted in a tweet that the latter fact might change over the course of the 8-episode first season.

The two images for Freya as Princess Ciri don't give much away, except that we will see her in a cloak. Anya can be seen wearing heavy fur and wielding a dagger as Yennefer, with a hint of violet eyes, as written in Andrzej's books. If you're new to the world of The Witcher, Ciri is the adoptive daughter of Geralt and Yennefer, who are each other's true love.

Here's the official description for The Witcher series, from Netflix, "Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, 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.”

The Witcher is out in late 2019 on Netflix.
