Los Angeles, Nov 2 (PTI) Netflix has announced that Henry Cavill-starrer series 'The Witcher' will premiere on the platform on December 20.

The fantasy show is based on the series of novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.

Cavill is playing Geralt of Rivia, solitary monster hunter, struggling to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
