The first season of Netflix’s The Witcher was met with a great deal of enthusiasm, with the show becoming one of the streaming service’s biggest ever. It was therefore not surprising to see a season 2 confirmed. Ahead of this second season however, it has also been announced that season 3 is on the way.
Making the announcement on Twitter, the official Witcher page said “Toss a coin to our growing Witcher universe! We can officially announce The Witcher Season 3, along with a second anime feature film, and a new Kids and Family series set in the world of The Witcher.”
While the announcement of a season 3 came as no surprise, it is interesting to see the anime getting a second entry. Reception was positive, and it's good to see that viewership must have been equally as positive for Netflix to order a second movie.
What is perhaps the most curious announcement was the fact that a children's show is in production. The world of the Witcher is famously bleak, depressing and bloody, and so making a child-appropriate show is certainly a choice. Of course, The Witcher is a hot property right now, and so it makes sense that Netflix would want to capitalise on it. Still, it will be interesting to see the final result of this children’s show.
