The Witcher is coming back to Netflix with an even bigger presence. Besides announcing the second season of the series, scheduled to launch on December 17th, fans of the franchise are also getting an anime film on August 23rd. Additionally, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will receive new free DLCs with items inspired by the Netflix series.
The Witcher’s second season, anime movie, and new DLCs were announced during WitcherCon, a Witcher-focused conference held from July 9th to July 10th.
The Witcher: Season 2 is coming out on December 17th and will consist of 8 episodes, from which we already know the name of 7. The new season will include new characters, but familiar faces like Geralt, Ciri, Jaskier, and Yennefer are also returning. As per the trailer, it looks like we will witness Geralt training Ciri in Kaer Morhen and beyond. Other witchers are also present, including Vesemir, Geralt’s mentor. Here’s the list of episodes:
- A Grain of Truth
- Kaer Morhen
- What is Lost
- Redanian Intelligence
- Turn Your Back
- Dear Friend
- Voleth Meir
While we wait for the second season of The Witcher’s Netflix series, we can take a look at The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. This anime film coming on August 23rd will be produced by Studio Mir, the same studio responsible for Avatar: The Legend of Korra and Dota: Dragon’s Blood. The story will revolve around a young Vesemir.
Besides the new season and movie, CD Projekt Red will launch new DLC content based on the series. These will be small, free DLCs, rather than expansions like Hearts of Stone or Blood of Wine. .
