Gossip Girl and Superman fans are in for a treat because Santa’s bringing back Henry Cavill to the smallscreen just in time for Christmas in the new show critics are touting as the next Game of Thrones… Big call. Adding to that is next year’s Vikings audience who will be looking for their fix of action after the final twenty episodes of its sixth and season run airs begins airing next month.
It’s based on a series of best sellers that aren’t as easy for die hard fans to unpack and lament over like many did looking for clues to upcoming seasons during Game of Thrones’ rise to prominence. What makes this quite unique is not only the existing reader fanbase the show will have from the books, but independent to that a fan base of gamers not necessarily familiar with the actually story it’s based on.
The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. The story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified.
