The upcoming series is based on the best-selling fantasy series and follows Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, as he struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.

Though, giving a plot twist in the story, 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.

Cavill, 35, who was last seen alongside Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible Fallout, will portray the role of Geralt of Rivia.
