Netflix's THE WITCHER Series Won't Be Released Before 2020 As The Script Requires More Polishing
Producer Erik Barmack has confirmed that we will have to wait at least two more years to watch Netflix's The Witcher adaptation as the series will be filmed entirely in Poland, Eastern and Central Europe!
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.

It has been an amazing week in Warsaw and Kraków and Łódź and all the Polish countryside in between. I came here to soak in the country and culture and history and vodka, and I’m so grateful for all the inspiration.— Lauren S. Hissrich (@LHissrich) 14 kwietnia 2018
