Witcher is not over yet as it is announced that more content of The Witcher is coming this year. Fans have been waiting for the second season of the series The Witcher and the news is out about its revival in December. But ahead of the highly anticipated second season, a new anime film is set to premiere on the streaming service Netflix on August 23, 2021. The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf has been given an official release date by Netflix. The anime film was ordered in January, 2020 and the project hails from The Witcher series producers Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and Beau DeMayo, along with the Korean animation studio Studio Mir who previously worked on The Legend of Korra and Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender.

The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf’s news was shared on July 9th,2021 (Friday) during WitcherCon, where a new teaser trailer for the anime film – which focuses on Geralt of Rivia’s mentor, Vesemir – was also released
The logline for the anime film is: “Before Geralt, there was Vesemir — a cocky young witcher who delights in slaying monsters for coins. When a dangerous new power rises on the Continent, Vesemir learns that some witchering jobs are about more than just money…”
Apart from the Witcher anime movie announcement, the official release date for The Witcher’s second season was also confirmed for December 17 during the WitcherCon event. The official synopsis from Netflix for The Witcher season two reads: “Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen.
“While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.”
