Wiedźmin (The Hexer or The Witcher in English) is a Polish fantasy television series which aired in 2002.

The story is based on the stories of The Witcher fantasy series (The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny collections), by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.

Reception[edit]

The series has been described as better than the movie which preceded it, but the poor critical and fan reception of the movie, which was described as a glorified, incoherent trailer for the TV show, was cited as one of the reasons for the series cancellation after 13 episodes.[1]
