The second season of the Netflix Witcher live-action program will arrive in December, but before that, Netflix will release an anime film called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf in August. You can watch the trailer for this above.
The film focuses on Geralt’s wizard mentor, Vesemir, and the animation comes from Studio Mir, whose previous work includes The Legend of Korra and Dota: Dragon Blood.
While Dota: Dragon’s Blood’s didn’t excite us much, we loved the Netflix anime series Castlevania (from Frederator Studios, Powerhouse Animation and others). The short trailer for Nightmare of the Wolf looks interesting enough and the poster (below) is pretty sweet.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf will be available to play on Netflix on August 23, 2021, a little earlier than we expected, as we’ve heard very little about it.
Meanwhile, the Netflix Witcher show starring Henry Cavill will continue on December 17 with a new eight-episode season. Learn more about season 2 of The Witcher here, including the new trailer.
