The Witcher is an American fantasy drama web television series created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich for Netflix. It is based on the book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. The Witcher follows the story of Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than monsters and beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a special gift, the three must learn to navigate independently the increasingly volatile Continent.
My world is cruel and predictable. You enter, you survive, you die.

Henry Cavill indicated that he got in the best shape of his life for The Witcher because he wants to push the boundaries of his physique for every role. He told Entertainment Tonight, "Every time I get into shape for a movie or a TV show, it is always trying to upgrade from the last one. And my trainer Dave Rienzi pushes me to the point where it is the absolute maximum for that job. And then in between jobs we'll work to improve it and then on the next job again, try and push the envelope more. Each time, if I am doing it right, I should be in better shape." He went to add, "Because we are working in the medium of film, it is all about the aesthetic. And it is how one looks - if one looks a certain degree better than you looked previously. Some people won't notice the difference. But people like myself and Dave do. Because we're going through the finite process of changing things." Cavill underestimated the changes because fans immediately noticed the enormous upgrade in his physique once the trailer premiered at Comic Con 2019. In the trailer, Cavill appeared shirtless in one scene showing a level of muscularity and sculpting far exceeding anything he had shown in his three outings as Superman. See more
