The script is ready for The Witcher's Netflix pilot episode

We've still got a long road to go, but at least there's progress.

Last year Gamereactor reported on a Netflix series based on the universe of The Witcher novels, and now Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (who is writing The Witcher series) has announced on Twitter that the script for the pilot episode is ready.

This of course means that there's still a long way to go before we see the series on Netflix, but at least we know that it's definitely coming and that the wheels are in motion. What's more is that Hissrich has also said in the past that the series won't be 'watered down', which is always nice to know.

The Witcher series will be based more on Andrzej Sapkowski's fantasy novels instead of the video games made by CD Projekt Red, just to be clear, but we can obviously expect some crossover, especially in terms of tone and characters.

Do you think a series can do The Witcher justice?
