NETFLIX accidentally confirmed the release date for The Witcher in a now-deleted social media post.
The Henry Cavill lead fantasy drama is based on the book series of the same name b Andrzej Sapkowski.
Fans were given a first glimpse of the live-adaptation back in July, but things had remained quiet since then until official accounts for Netflix Netherlands accidentally revealed the release date this week.
In a verified tweet, the account told followers “the wait is almost over, *so many* nights sleep for these titles.”
The Witcher featured on the list alongside the likes of Peaky Blinders series five and The Crown series three, with 97 “sleeps” left.
While the tweet was subsequently deleted, fans were able to calculate that this meant the official release date would be December 17.
Previous reports had stated The Witcher would be available in December, but no official comment has ever been made, even by showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich.
Despite the tweet, the release date could still be subject to change.
The Witcher stars Superman actor Henry, 36, as Geralt of Rivia, while Anya Chalotra plays Yennefer of Vengerberg.
They are joined by Freya Allan as Ciri and Joey Batey as Jaskier.
