Netflix says Henry Cavill is going to be a star in the eight-part series, “The Witcher.”

Cavill, 35, plays the character of Geralt of Rivia, the streaming giant said in a Tuesday press release.

The company is calling the program “an epic story of fate and family.”

“Geralt of Rivia, a lone monster hunter, the struggle to find his place in a world where people often appear to be more evil than the beasts,” Netflix said in a statement. “But as fate hurtles him in the direction of a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.”
