We Will Have To Wait Until 2020 To Watch Netflix's THE WITCHER Series As The Script Is Still Unfinished

According to producer Erik Barmack, Netflix's The Witcher won't be released before 2020, but fans of the books and games shouldn't be sad, as the series will be filmed entirely in Eastern and Central Europe!

Netflix's The Witcher adaptation is a highly anticipated series and it looks like fans of Andrzej Sapkowski's book and CD Projekt Red's game trilogy will have to wait to watch it a little longer. Producer Erik Barmack has revealed that the series won't be released before 2020, and even this is an optimistic date as the works on the script for The Witcher are still unfinished and require more time.

It wasn't the only information Polish website NaEkranie learned during Netflix's press event in Rome as the producer confirmed that the series will be filmed entirely in Eastern and Central Europe, mostly in Poland where the source material was created. We will also have to wait for casting announcements, as the producers are currently focusing on the pre-production and location scouting.

Screenwriter and producer Lauren S. Hissrich has already finished working on the pilot episode and recently had a chance to visit Poland and meet Andrzej Sapkowski, the book's author and one of the series' consultant. Last week, she visited the biggest Polish cities, including Warsaw, Kraków and Łódź, and also a castle in Rabsztyn which looks strangely similar to Kaer Morhen... Take a look:
