The Witcher 1

Let's get to it. Here is the streaming news you need to know from Wednesday, November 13. 

Netflix is betting big on the forthcoming series adaptation of The Witcher. The Henry Cavill-led series has scored a second season renewal before it has aired a single episode. 

“I’m so thrilled that before fans have even seen our first season, we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri,” showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said in a statement.

A Different Role for Henry Cavill

"Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia (Cavill), a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts," reads the official logline.

"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 expansive cast also includes Freya Allan (The War of the Worlds, Into The Badlands) as Ciri, Anya Chalotra (The ABC Murders, Wanderlust) as Yennefer, Jodhi May (Game of Thrones, Genius) as Calanthe, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson (Fortitude) as Eist, Adam Levy (Knightfall, Snatch) as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring (Ripper Street, Kill List) as Tissaia), Mimi Ndiweni (Black Earth Rising) as Fringilla, Therica Wilson-Read (Profile) as Sabrina, and Millie Brady (The Last Kingdom, Teen Spirit) as Renfri, Eamon Farren (The ABC Murders, Twin Peaks) as Cahir, Joey Batey (Knightfall, Strike) as Jaskier, Lars Mikkelsen (House of Cards, Sherlock) as Stregobor, Royce Pierreson (Wanderlust, Judy) as Istredd, Maciej Musiał (1983) as Sir Lazlo, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte (Jamillah & Aladdin, Dickensian) as Dara, and Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter) as Triss.

The adaptation of the bestselling novels will arrive with its entire first Friday, December 20, only on Netflix. 

Meanwhile, Disney+ launched Tuesday, November 12, and the servers struggled to keep up with the demand. 

Now, just one day later, Walt Disney has revealed that the service hit the 10 million subscriptions milestone on launch day.

Disney+ is the dedicated streaming home for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more, together, for the first time.

The new streamer has also revealed that it will not be dropping details on subscriber data regularly, saying that the information will be saved for The Walt Disney Company's quarterly earnings calls. 

Over in the land of HBO Max, Grey's Anatomy veteran, T.R. Knight has joined the cast of forthcoming drama series The Flight Attendant.

The series will be based on Chris Bohjalian's novel of the same name. It follows a young flight attendant who wakes up in a Dubai hotel room with a dead body next to her.

With no idea what happened, she desperately joins her crew members on her next scheduled flight.

But she is met by FBI agents who are curious to find out what she got up to while in Dubai.

Knight is on board in the series regular role of Cassie's older brother, Davey, who is not too impressed with his sister's life choices.
