The series is an adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s bestselling novels, which tell the story of "witchers," hunters who develop supernatural abilities at a young age to battle deadly monsters.

Cavill's Geralt of Rivia is a solitary witcher who is struggling 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.

Netflix also confirmed the rest of the show’s cast, which includes Freya Allan ("The War of the Worlds") as Ciri, Anya Chalotra ("The ABC Murders") as Yennefer, Jodhi May ("Game of Thrones") as Calanthe,  Eamon Farren ("Twin Peaks") as Cahir, Joey Batey (Knightfall) as Jaskier, and Lars Mikkelsen ("House of Cards") as Stregobor.
