The Letter for the King is a new series produced by the streaming service that is now available on Netflix across all regions. All six episodes are available to watch right away so get gouging binge watchers!
Widely being referred to as "The Witcher, but for kids", the six-part series is adaptated from Tonke Dragt’s beloved 1962 Dutch novel De brief voor de Koning.
The story centers around Tiuri, a 16-year-old aspiring knight played by His Dark Material star Amir Wilson. As his training progresses he finds himself drawn into a dangerous mission to deliver a secret letter to the King who lives across the Great Mountains.
Along with his high-stakes courier job, Tiuri must also help save the kingdom of Dagonaut from an evil prince (Gijs Blom) who is threatening to plunge it into darkness.
Unlike a lot of recent fantasy films and shows that are pitched squarely at an older audience, with tons of graphic violence and nudity, The Letter For The King is primarily aimed at teens and is positively wholesome so should come as a godsend to parents of bored kids at home on the lockdown.
