Netflix Sets December Premiere Date for 'The Witcher'

Netflix Thursday said it will debut its new fantasy series The Witcher on Dec. 20.

Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher stars Henry Cavill and tells the story of Geralt of Rivia -- a solitary monster hunter -- as he struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together, according to Netflix.
