Netflix’s hit fantasy show, The Witcher, is based on a series of short stories written by Andrzej Sapkowski. The show’s leading character in seasons one and two was Superman actor Henry Cavill, who played Geralt of Rivia. Cavill was joined by Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan and Joey Batey among others. The Witcher premiered in 2019, with a largely unknown cast besides Cavillm and Lauren Schmidt, as the television creator. Set in a world filled with beasts and mystical creatures, The Witcher follows Geralt, a monster hunter.
To keep the inspiration flowing, the showrunner, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, tapes ideas and references on a door. She was still a writer and executive producer on the Netflix superhero show “The Umbrella Academy” when she landed her new gig, back in August 2017, so the door did double duty for a while. IMDB
