The arrival of our favorite monster hunter is upon us, and to make us drool a bit more before it premieres on December 20, streaming juggernaut Netflix has provided us with more teaser trailers highlighting key characters from The Witcher series, as told by the actor/actresses themselves.
Here’s a spotlight on Geralt of Rivia:
Yennefer of Vengerberg
Additionally, here are some stills featuring the same 3 characters from the trailer. Though I’m pretty sure this will be heavily based more on the books, it looks like the show wants to strike a balance for fans of both paper and video game mediums.
