Tired of waiting for Season 2 of 'The Witcher' to drop on Netflix? The streaming service has just the right show for you. The first season of 'The Letter for the King' will arrive on Netflix this March. The show is based on the Dutch novel of the same name by Tonke Dragt.

A coming of age story with a mystical twist unfolding in a Medieval kingdom filled with heroic knights, evil princes and promises of an epic quest means the show has all the elements that 'The Witcher' fans will love.

Release date

The first season of the show will be released on Netflix on March 20.

Plot

When Tiuri answers a desperate call for help, he finds himself on a perilous mission that could cost him his life. He must deliver a secret letter to the King who lives across the Great Mountains. The future of the entire realm depends on the letter as a ruthless prince threatens to plunge the world into eternal darkness.

For Tiuri to do this, he has to abandon his home, break all the rules and leave everything behind, including his longtime dream of achieving knighthood. But what else can he do if the fate of the kingdom depends on him alone?

Tiuri must trust no one and keep his true identity a secret as he tries to deliver the letter to the king. Most importantly, he must not reveal the contents of the letter.

Cast

Amir Wilson ('His Dark Materials') takes the lead role in this fantasy series as a young knight in training named Tiuri. Ruby Serkis ('The Hobbit') also stars in the show as Lavinia, who travels with Tiuri.

The show also stars Islam Bouakkaz as Arman, Jack Barton as Foldo, Jonah Lees as Jussipo and David Wenham as Sir Tiuri The Valiant.

Creator

The show is based on the Dutch novel 'De brief voor de Koning' by Tonke Dragt. Dragt is a Dutch writer and illustrator of children's literature. 'De brief voor de koning' was chosen as the best Dutch youth book of the latter half of the 20th century.
