'The Witcher' Lands On Netflix Friday And We Can't Wait To Binge It

'The Witcher' Lands On Netflix Friday And We Can't Wait To Binge It

The Witcher lands on Netflix this Friday and we can't help but share our excitement over Henry Cavill's new fantasy epic.

The action-packed series has been branded "better than Game of Thrones" by both fans and critics - quite the statement - which is giving us all the hallmarks for the perfect bingeable series this festive season.

The highly-anticipated drama follows 'The Witcher' Geralt of Rivia, who is "a mutated monster hunter, who struggles to find his place in a world in which people often prove more wicked than beasts."

The eight-part adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski's bestselling series of novels and short stories also tells the stories of Princess Ciri and Yennefer of Vengerberg, demonstrating how destiny brings these three characters together.

Although the series hasn't arrived on the streaming service just yet, critics and fans have already drawn comparisons to GoT, with many reviewers saying Game of Thrones doesn't measure up to The Witcher. High praise.

One fan unapologetically penned on Twitter: "The Witcher is gonna be the new game of thrones, sorry bout it"(sic).

"The Witcher Netflix series is gonna be better than Game of Thrones," another lamented.

A third wrote: "Some critics already saw The Witcher series from Netflix and it looks like it`s better than GoT. So, yeah, the hype just started in my mind."

'Selling Sunset' Season 3 Lands On Netflix On Friday

Last month, executive producer Tomasz Bagiński discussed how committed Henry was to his role in the fantasy series that he slept on set in his trailer.

"In Hungary, he spent weeks sleeping in a trailer right by the set," Tomasz told teleshow.wp (via ComicBook.com).

"He didn't go back to the hotel in Budapest which saved him an hour every day, but mostly it meant that during the whole time he was in the Witcher world. That doesn't happen very often. Henry is a working actor, he knows what to do and he delivers fantastic scenes."

Aside from the reviews, it appears Netflix is so taken with the series that it's green-lit a second series already.
