Netflix Parts the Curtain a Little After Announcing the Release Date for The Witcher and Showing Geralt's Origin

The main trailer of The Witcher hints at the origin of Geralt and also the storyline of the series.

After months of waiting and sating our thirst with the first trailer of 'The Witcher,' we are finally getting something concrete about what to expect in the new upcoming series of the Netflix series.

On the day of Halloween, as we predicted, the world’s largest streaming site released the main trailer for the upcoming, highly anticipated show, 'The Witcher.' This trailer finally lets us know what to expect from the upcoming first season of the beloved book and game series’ adaptation.

In the trailer, we see more of 'Geralt,' and after the woody performance in the first trailer, the actor almost resembled the game’s Geralt when he says, “I had them filed down.” After much discussion and fans up in arms because the series was not going the route they were expecting, this is a fine change of tune for all. The trailer is magnificent, and we cannot wait to see how the whole thing looks together.

“I've heard tales of your kind, Witcher. You're a mutant. Created by magic. Roaming the continent. Hunting monsters for a price,” Anya Chalotra’s 'Yennefer' let Geralt know about her impression of 'The Witcher.' The images then show Geralt getting experimented on and people around him using potions and magic to make the “mutant.”

The trailer also does a fine of giving people exactly what they were clamoring for, sword fights. There are a lot of sword fights in the new trailer, and we also see how they are going about using and showing magic in the show.

'The Witcher' is not looked upon kindly in the books and the games, and the show also gives a glimpse into the way 'Geralt' and his kind are looked upon in the Continent. Then by the mid-point of the trailer, 'Ciri' goes looking for 'Geralt' because “as long as he is alive, there is hope.”

Oh, and the bathtub is also there in the trailer, which is sure to make some fans really happy. Also, the creator of the show, saying there will be a lot of blood and gore in the series, seems to be true. Netflix is not shying away from the brutality of the book and the game series, which is also going to make the die-hard fans extremely happy.

“You can't outrun destiny just because you're terrified of it,” is the description Netflix is rolling with and it seems destiny and duty will play a significant role in the upcoming series. 'The Witcher' will arrive on Netflix this holiday season on 20 December 2019, the same day 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' makes its way to the theatres worldwide.
