The video recaps plenty of footage and includes discussion from showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, stars Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra, and Freya Allan, and executive producer Tomasz Baginski. The Continent is a vast place filled with monsters, magic, and destiny, so consider this a guide to help you dive deeper into this epic journey.

When you finish watching that, you can head on over to our season review and read what we thought about the show. For the uninitiated, you can find more details regarding the series just below.


In The Witcher, 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.

Henry Cavill plays the starring role of Geralt of Rivia while the cast also includes Freya Allan (The War of the Worlds, Into the Badlands) as Princess Cirilla, Anya Chalotra (The ABC Murders, Wanderlust) as Yennefer of Vengerberg, Joey Batey (Knightfall, Strike) as the bard Jaskier, Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter series) as Triss Merigold, and Eamon Farren (The ABC Murders, Twin Peaks) as Cahir.

The first season of The Witcher is now streaming on Netflix and has already been renewed for a second, which will begin filming early next year for a 2021 release. Stay tuned for all the latest news and updates regarding the series right here on Dead Entertainment.
