Netflix is ramping up the marketing for “The Witcher” ahead of San Diego Comic-Con. The platform officially launched the social medai handles for highly anticipated new series, which is based on the book and video-game franchises, and teased the show’s main characters in their costumes.
The new pictures that were released today show the series’ lead characters: Geralt (Henry Cavill), Yennefer (Anya Cholatra), and Ciri (Freya Allan), and fans can see them below.

Netflix also confirmed the panel members, naming Cavill, Chalotra, and Allan alongside showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.
Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family.
