‘The Witcher’ to Set a Netflix Record

“The Witcher” is on track to become the most-viewed first season ever on Netflix, based on their Q4 earnings report. An incredible 76 million “member households” tuned in within the first four weeks of the show airing.

Not only that, but the original novels by Andrzej Sapkowski that the series was based upon also received an increase in sales. The video game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt experienced a huge boost as well.

In fact, after the Netflix series aired, more gamers started playing the RPG than when the game was first released in 2015. Talk about “tossing a coin to your Witcher!”
