This popular Netflix show is based on a series of books written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The story follows Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter for hire. Throughout the first series, viewers can enjoy numerous adventures that our protagonist and other notable characters go through, as well as time jumps that are meant to shed light on their backstories.

Geralt struggles to truly find his place in the world, often not being certain if the real beasts are the monsters he hunts or the people who pay him to do so. The fantasy series is riddled with daring sword fights, magic, romance, and a compelling plot.
