The Witcher is a fantasy fan's dream. This show is based on a series of Polish short stories, by author Andrzej Sapkowski, following the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, the Witcher. These stories have also been transformed into a popular video game, and now, a gripping show on Netflix starring Henry Cavill as Geralt, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, and Freya Allen as Ciri. Cavill, Chalotra, and Allen are all brilliant in their roles and captivating to watch. The show is brilliantly cut into the crisscrossing timelines of these three characters and their unexpected journeys. Geralt is not entirely human, but possesses strength and abilities that allow him to hunt monsters, often with no admiration from the humans he protects. Season one can be watched now, with a second season currently in production. For the ultimate fans, Henry Cavill shares updates on his Instagram of his current training and preparation for the second season, including horseback riding among other things @henrycavill. So, if you enjoy fantasy, monsters, witches, mysteries, action, and sword fighting, what are you waiting for?
