The Witcher Statues
The Witcher is a fantasy drama streaming television series created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, based on the book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. Set on a fictional, medieval-inspired landmass known as “the Continent“, The Witcher explores the legend of Geralt of Rivia and Princess Ciri, who are linked to each other by destiny. It stars Henry Cavill, Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra. The first season consisted of 8 episodes and was released on Netflix in its entirety on December 20, 2019. It was based on The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny, which are collections of short stories that precede the main Witcher saga. The second season, consisting of 8 episodes, is scheduled to be released on December 17, 2021. In September 2021, Netflix announced that the series had been renewed for a third season. The Witcher series started as a series of short stories, at first published in Fantastyka, a Polish science fiction and fantasy magazine.
The first short story, “Wiedźmin“, “The Witcher” (1986), was written for a contest held by the magazine, where it won third place. The first four stories of the witcher Geralt, and the story “Droga, z której się nie wraca“, “The Road with No Return“, which took place in the same world, but dozens of years before the witcher stories, were originally collected in a short story collection titled Wiedźmin, out of print and now obsolete, all 15 short stories were later collected in three books published by superNOWA. The second short story collection to be published was Sword of Destiny. While The Last Wish was published after it, it replaced Wiedźmin as the first book, as it included all of the stories collected in Wiedźmin except “Droga, z ktorej się nie wraca“, “the only one not featuring Geralt“.
Although new short stories were added in The Last Wish, they took place before the ones in Sword of Destiny. “Droga, z której się nie wraca“, along with “Coś się kończy, coś się zaczyna“, a non-canon story about Geralt and Yennefer‘s wedding, written as a wedding gift for Sapkowski’s friends, were later published in the book “Coś się kończy, coś się zaczyna“, “Something Ends, Something Begins“. The rest of the stories in this book are not connected to the Witcher series in any way. In some Polish editions, “Droga, z której się nie wraca” and “Coś się kończy, coś się zaczyna” are added to either The Last Wish or Sword of Destiny.
