Netflix accidentally revealed the release date for their upcoming fantasy series The Witcher starring Henry Cavill in a now-deleted Facebook post.
The following post comes courtesy of the official Fandom Twitter, where a screenshot of the initial Facebook post shows off how there are “*so many* nights sleep for these titles.” The post shows the amount of nights left before certain upcoming films and television series premiere on the streaming service and in the case of Henry Cavill’s The Witcher, we see that there are 97 nights left:
‘The Witcher’ will seemingly release Dec. 17, according to a deleted post from Netflix Netherlands ⚔️

Based on when this Facebook post was made, that teases that all episodes of the first season of The Witcher would premiere on December 17, 2019.
Given that this Facebook post was soon deleted, it appears that Netflix may have revealed the release date of The Witcher earlier than they intended. After all, the streaming service has many other series and films to promote as well such as El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and the third season of The Crown among others.

Here is the official synopsis for Henry Cavill’s The Witcher:
Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Aretuza, and Millie Brady as Princess Renfri, with Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read as novice sorcerers.
Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich will also serve as an executive producer on the series while Alik Sakharov, Alex Garcia Lopez, and Charlotte Brändström are on board as directors for the eight-episode first season.
The Witcher will be available on Netflix in late 2019.
