NETFLIX has announced that actor Henry Cavill (Mission Impossible Fallout, Man of Steel), who stars as Geralt of Rivia in the upcoming Netflix Original Series The Witcher, is coming to the Philippines in December. Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, the series’ showrunner, will join Cavill to celebrate the launch of this epic adventure series.
Cavill will attend #TheWitcherInManila event on Dec. 12, 5 p.m. onwards, at Activity Center of the Ayala Malls Manila Bay in Parañaque City. Access to the event is on a first come, first served basis as there is limited space available. Fans can also immerse themselves in the world of The Witcher with a photo zone which will be open from Dec. 10-13, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Early birds at the venue on Dec. 12 can also get swag from the show, and the opportunity to watch the first episode of The Witcher.
Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is the story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in a vast world where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified.
Netflix recently announced a second season pick up for The Witcher. The second season will begin production in London early in 2020, for a planned debut in 2021. The Witcher premieres on Netflix on Dec. 20.
