Netflix's THE WITCHER Series' Screenplay Will Be Written By The Creators Of DAREDEVIL And JESSICA JONES

Producer Lauren S. Hissrich has revealed that the screenplay of the upcoming The Witcher series will be created by the talented writers responsible for Netflix's Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and more!

Netflix's The Witcher series is still in the pre-production phase as the adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski's body of work won't be released before 2020, and even that is an optimistic scenario. The first season will be a short one, with only eight episodes, but the works on the script for The Witcher are still unfinished and require more time. At least, we finally know who will be responsible for the script.

Screenwriter and producer Lauren S. Hissrich has already finished working on the pilot episode and recently revealed that her long-time collaborators Jenny Klein (Jessica Jones S2, Cloak & Dagger), Sneha Koorse (Constantine, Daredevil), Declan de Barra (Funky Fables, The Originals), and Clare Higgins (The Worst Witch) will write the script and there are five more screenwriters working on the series.

The series was officially announced last May and Netflix plans to adapt the first two books in The Witcher series, Sword of Destiny and The Last Wish as the adaptation will be filmed entirely in Eastern and Central Europe, mostly in Poland. Sean Daniel, Jason Brown and Platige Images' Jarek Sawko and Tomek Bagiński are producing the series. Andrzej Sapkowski is signed on as a creative consultant.


The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
