This show, based on a book series that also spawned a popular video game franchise, had a lot riding for it. Aforementioned built-in fanbase aside, the series also stole away Superman, with Henry Cavill being the “witcher” in this series. The Witcher may have also rode the Game of Thrones remorse wave, giving viewers something that felt kind of like the hit HBO series, or at least felt similar enough to scratch that itch. With Season 2 of The Witcher hitting Netflix on Dec. 17 and Season 3 already in the plans, we could see a Witcher renaissance, at least on the viewership side.
