Netflix series 'The Witcher' confirms second season. Hollywood actor Henry Cavill plays the role of 'The Witcher'. The controversial Polish-American adaptation was one of Netflix's highest rating original series. Many compare it to 'Game of Thrones'. Perhaps that's why it has been so successful.
The books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski were poorly adapted twice before in Poland as a fantasy film and a TV series. The plot can be quite confusing because of its non-linear timeline. It wasn't until the role-playing video game came out in 2007 that 'The Witcher' began to gather fans.
The video game's fan based might have helped the series success on Netflix.
