Based on a series of fantasy novels of the same name by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, the Netflix series is set in a fantasy world, and it follows the story of Geralt of Rivia, a Witcher (a mutated human who hunts monsters), as his fate gets entangled with the Crown Princess Ciri and a mage Yennefer, while a war rages between nations that threatens to destroy the world completely.
