I was among that big group of everybody who very much enjoyed The Witcher TV show on Netflix last fall…or two falls ago? Who can tell at this point. Anyway, season two is coming later this year, but Netflix has also decided to expand the brand a bit and we’re going to get a prequel cartoon in two weeks.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is going to tell the story of Vesemir, the Witcher who trains Geralt.
Looks pretty awesome. Done in an anime-style, similar to the recent (and amazing) Castlevania show on Netflix. If this is even half as good as Castlevania, Nightmare of the Wolf should be pretty awesome! And then we’ll be properly introduced to Vesemir before he shows up in season two of the live action show.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf arrives on Netflix on Aug. 23.
