Netflix held some kind of event on Saturday where they showed off a bunch of new trailers for their upcoming and returning shows. Sounds neat! I’m as much a fan of Netflix shows as the next person. And I wanted to share the best two, in my opinion. Or the most exciting two.
First up is the first look at the Sandman adaptation. Neil Gaiman’s magnum opus has never before been adapted. And it looks pretty cool so far.
Next up is the second season of The Witcher.
I’m a huge fan of the Witcher games and never read the books, so the show is a bit early in Geralt’s timeline for me. But the first season was fun and everybody seemed to like it, so this second season appears to have a better budget maybe? Here’s hoping this Witcher show takes off and we get a whole series worth of content!
Sandman is coming sometime next year, and The Witcher returns on Dec. 17.
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.
December has been a pretty amazing month for television. New seasons of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Expanse have already arrived, and later this month we’ll get a new season of Lost in Space. I’m in TV heaven! But most excitedly, The Witcher TV show arrives on Friday on Netflix!
I’m a huge fan of The Witcher video games, even though the show won’t have anything to do with the games. Chronologically, the show is set years, if not decades, before the games. And I haven’t read the books.
But The Witcher is an exciting world full of exciting characters, and the show looks to be truly high grade. I have my hopes high! The Witcher comes out on Dec. 20.
I’m a huge fan of The Witcher video games. But the new Witcher Netflix show is going to be based on the books. So who knows exactly what we’re going to get. And I’m not sure this trailer provides that good of a look.
I honestly don’t know what to make of what we’re seeing here. It looks well made, but I also don’t know if Henry Cavill can pull this off. They should have given him the beard from Witcher 3, even though it’s not canonically accurate at all. Geralt of Rivia just looks better with a beard.
We’ll see! The Witcher TV show comes out on Dec. 20!
Finally we arrive at some Comic-Con trailers I actually care about! First up is The Witcher TV show coming to Netflix. Like most people, I am a huge fan of The Witcher video games, with The Witcher 3 being one of the greatest, most in-depth I have ever played. But the show is going to be based on the books, which I have no tread.
At least Henry Cavill looks better in motion than he did in the early photographs. This show could have all the goodness!
Next up is a Steven Universe made-for-TV movie, which looks awesome! And it delivers the one thing I want most from Steven Universe: letting him grow up. Steven is a such a great character that it annoys me that he was forced to stay kid-like. They had an episode explaining that his body just didn’t age like a normal person. That is so weird and lame.
Steven is a character that I want to see grow up. Steven’s growing maturity was the best part of the show, and I want that taken to normal, natural levels. But if you go much further, he’ll be an adult in a weird kid body, and that’s just weird. Movie trailer looks good, though.
