Netflix has now made such a name for itself in the world of entertainment, that any original content that it comes out with easily manages to garner huge attention from the audiences. With its diverse base of subscribers spread across the globe, Netflix has now grown up to be the biggest challenger of TV channels and traditional production houses. The biggest names in the industry are now eager to associate themselves with the company because the reach that Netflix provides is truly phenomenal.

The latest series by Netflix, ‘The Witcher‘, is based on Polish book series of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski. Notably, the show’s producers had earlier planned to make a single Netflix film based on the books but were dissuaded by Kelly Luegenbiehl, Vice President International Originals at Netflix. She quite rightly pointed out that turning an eight-part book series into a film means that vital plot points and characters will have to be tossed out of the window. She convinced the producers that an extended TV show is the only way forward for as grand a project as ‘The Witcher’. You must be quite eager to find out where you can stream ‘The Witcher’, and we are here to tell you just that. But before we do so, let us walk you through what the series is actually about:

What is The Witcher About?

The central character of ‘The Witcher’ is Geralt of Rivia, who is a monster hunter who goes around looking for evil beings to kill. However, he is tormented by the fact that the world he lives in has more evil people than monsters. The first episode explains to us rather simply the superpowers Geralt has and how he uses them to fight against monsters. We see that his special powers also at times make him a source of amusement for some people. However, in his constant fight against evil, Geralt gets by his side a powerful sorceress and a young princess. The three of them take part in various adventures together as they try to bring some order back into the world. Henry Cavill plays the titular role brilliantly. His impressive build does go a long way in making him suitable for the part.

Is The Witcher On Netflix?

Netflix is the most popular streaming platform in the world and has been able to hold on to its popularity not only because of the movies and TV shows it sources from around the world, but also because of its original productions which are now at par with some of the best content available in the market today. ‘The Witcher’ is a Netflix original series, and so it goes without saying that the show is available on the platform.

Is The Witcher On Hulu?

Hulu is one of the most popular streaming platforms in the world, and has been able to hold on to its appeal among its user base because of its regularly updated collection of films and Tv shows.

Is The Witcher On Disney+?

Disney is the single biggest company in the world of entertainment, and there is hardly anything beyond their reach. With the advent of Disney+, it can only be expected that Disney will spread its influence far and wide in the online streaming market, and will provide a tough competition to the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime.
