The live-action adaptation of The Witcher is launching on Netflix later this month. While screeners have already had access, fans of the series are looking for any news.

From the news so far, it’s evident that Geralt of Rivia, Ciri, and Yennefer will have important roles. Yennefer and Ciri will have more screentime away from Geralt to show who they were before meeting Geralt.

Fans have wondered about Triss Merigold and other Witchers. Triss Merigold had a leading role in CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher adaption, which occurred after the events of the novel series by Andrzej Sapkowski. She was there for Geralt from the first game until the final battle of The Wild Hunt.

Yennefer and Ciri were only mentioned in the first two games. When they finally appeared in the last two games, many gamers had trouble abandoning Triss, even if Yennefer was considered his primary love interest from the novels.

While Triss was front and center in the game series, she didn’t have a significant role in the novel series. Her story is slightly changing. Actress Anna Shaffer was cast as Triss and is credited in all eight episodes on The Witcher IMDB page.

Vesimir is an older Witcher. His life on The Path has ended to train other Wolf School Witchers at Kaer Morhen. He makes an appearance throughout the novel series and appeared in the first and third games. He is an important figure to both Geralt and Ciri.

Fans have been waiting to hear more about Triss and Vesimir’s roles in the Netflix series.

The Witcher Executive Producer Tomek Baginski stated in an interview that one character is more prominent, while the other takes a supplemental role. While the answer isn’t that obvious, many fans speculate that with an emphasis on Yennefer and sorceresses, Triss may become more predominate in the live-action version of the novels.

Netflix already has up the official page, which will launch the first episode soon: “Geralt of Rivia, a mutated monster-hunter for hire, journeys toward his destiny in a turbulent world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.”

From the small hint Baginski has given fans, viewers will have to separate themselves from the CD Projekt Red series they loved. The adaptation has even slightly deviated from the novel series. The Netflix series is sure to be a new experience for The Witcher fans.

The Witcher launches on Netflix on December 20, 2019.
