Netflix to Produce The Witcher TV Series

Netflix will develop and produce a new show based on The Witcher Saga, the series of eight novels by Andrzej Sapkowski that inspired the hugely popular CD Projekt Red RPG games...

It's not clear as yet what specific stories the series will follow...

In Poland The Witcher series from 2002 was a disaster.

I wonder if they're going to do it primarily from the POV of Geralt, or move around between several perspectives like the books. The latter seems to work with Game of Thrones, but I think if they try to do the same with this it'll not turn out well. Not that the focus has to be Geralt, but just have someone as primary; maybe Ciri if not Geralt; Yennefer could be hard since she's written as such a cold-hearted and mean person.

If you remember/know, what was the Polish TV series like?

I was about 10 then, so I remember very little. One of the elements I've remembered the best are eyes of the witcher played by Michał Żebrowski  :laugh:

I also can recall also that one of the main issues was the fact that there were some (many?) elements that weren't compatible with the books.
Another problem that the episodes for the series were being made at once along with the movie under the same title.
That's a pity, since a few very good Polish actors played in it, also some that are dead now.
