Entertainment Weekly, recently took interview of the famous Lauren Hissrich who is the man behind The Witcher series on Netflix. He gave a few ideas and behind the scenes of the series.
Initially, Lauren has clearly established the fact that the series will be ‘Highly Adult’. So we can expect a lot of fights with nudity. The show will be highly ‘Violent’ and ‘Old Sex’.
On a comic note, Lauren added that his son saw something he shouldn’t have seen. Thus, the series will have adult content definitely, similar to the game. She also added the show will contain a number of ‘Monsters’.
The Witcher Series Details
The Witcher will be a horror-fantasy-action genre series. Thus, we can expect a mixture of monster fights with a horror background. It was also revealed by Lauren that there will not be a main antagonist for the series. Thus it can be speculated that every episode will have its own different monster.
However, a lack of a central villain around which the story revolves may affect some fans.

Fans speculate that the series will be based on events that are before both novel and games. Witcher will thus follow the sequence of ‘Short Stories’.

“There isn’t really a villain, One of the things we’re enjoying exploring is all the shades of grey in the books.”
Lauren also subtly hinted that the Monsters will have a human-based motivation for the bad things they do. She added that fans favourite character would change over time.
