What will The Witcher TV series be like? Will it be like the games, or kid-friendly?
The upcoming Witcher TV series (based on the books and popular gaming trilogy) has been slowly peeling back the layers and showing fans what it will be like. We’ve gotten looks at Geralt, his horse, Ciri, and more. And now, via an interview with Entertainment Weekly, we know what to expect in terms of content:
“I’ve been rewatching dailies and my kids aren’t allowed to look at the screen anymore after one of them snuck around and saw something they shouldn’t have seen and it scared him,” the showrunner said. “It’s a very adult show. I will add it was important to me that any violence or sex drives the story and is not there just for shock value. I think audiences are really savvy and know when we’re doing stuff to just shock them versus do stuff that really drives the story.”
The first season is scheduled to release someone this year.
