Netflix officially debunked the leaked release date for The Witcher.
Earlier this week, Netflix Netherlands Twitter and Facebook accounts posted a message suggesting there were only 97 nights left until the premiere of The Witcher. After the posts were deleted, viewers suspected Netflix accidentally revealed what would have been a December 17, 2019, release date for The Witcher before they intended.
However, Netflix released a statement to Video Games Chronicle in which it debunks the leaked date. As the Netflix spokesperson stated, the posts were made by mistake and not all of the information was correct:
“The launch date for The Witcher has not yet been confirmed. The post was made by Netflix accounts in the Netherlands in error, and not all of the information contained in it is accurate/final.”

Here is the official synopsis for Netflix’s The Witcher:
Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family.
