Witcher Netflix series reportedly helmed by Marvel's Daredevil and Defenders writer/producer

But details are still foggy

The Witcher Netflix series will reportedly be adapted by the driving force behind Marvel's Daredevil and Defenders shows.

Writer and producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich will, according to Variety, be the showrunner and executive producer for The Witcher. She co-wrote and co-executive produced Daredevil and Defenders.

The Witcher Netflix series was announced in May. It's a joint venture between Polish company Platige, which has been making cinematics for The Witcher games for years, and Netflix. It has nothing to do with game maker CD Projekt Red but Witcher author and creator Andrzej Sapkowski is involved as a consultant.

The Witcher video game actor Doug Cockle, who voices Geralt in the English language version of the game, is also not involved.

We don't know much else about Netflix's Witcher series. Apparently production has begun but no actors have been publicly attached do it. There's no release date either.
