Those who are already excited for The Witcher series on Netflix may be even more excited to learn that Marc Jobst, the director behind Daredevil and The Punisher, has apparently worked on the season finale. The Witcher is set for an 8-episode run, and there is evidence that Jobst worked on at least portions of the show's 8th episode.
As a result of this revelation, there are a few unanswered questions, such as to what extent did Jobst work on the show or why Alik Sakharov, who was thought to be directing this episode, did not. This information originates from a leaked set clapperboard from the filming in Poland's Orgrodzieniec Castle, which was the first to reveal Jobst's role on Netflix's The Witcher. Seen below, it not only lists Jobst as the director, but also it confirms that the aforementioned castle setting takes place in scene 3 of episode 8.
Because of this information, it can be determined that Jobst worked on at least portions of the episode, if not the whole thing. This is corroborated by the CV of Jack Bandeira, who plays "Younger Alderman" and was also present at the Poland shooting. It not only identifies Jobst, but it also helps confirm the timing of the shoot as April 8 and 9.
This is notable because Jobst himself made a post that is apparently connected to The Witcher series at this time. On April 8, Jobst made the below post of a chair that is seemingly covered in spikes, which could easily be connected with the medieval action RPG series that originated from The Witcher series creator Andrzej Sapkowski.

Answers to some of the lingering questions may be answered in the coming months before the launch of this Netflix Witcher series, but regardless, for however much Jobst influenced the show, it seems to be in good hands. The Punisher and Daredevil sit at 8.6 an 8.7 out of 10 on IMDb, respectively, which are reputable numbers that The Witcher will hopefully exceed. If so, that could very well prompt video game developer CD Projekt Red to make yet another game based on The Witcher.
Netflix’s The Witcher series is set to debut on the streaming service at some point in late 2019.
