Hopefully The Witcher: Blood Origin Will Be A Good Show

Even after losing star Henry Cavill from the main Witcher show, Netflix is full steam ahead on more Witcher content. We had that one cartoon — Nightmare of the Wolf, which was great — and we’ve got a third season coming out soon enough. Now next up we will get another live action show, The Witcher: Blood Origin. Looks pretty neat.

It also looks like half House of the Dragon/half Andor. A prequel series that’s about fighting a fascist empire? Throw in a little Lord of the Rings with that fellowship of various fantasy races and you’ve got quite the show on your hands. It could be good. I know I’ll be watching, because why not?

The Witcher: Blood Origin comes out on Christmas Day…though I probably won’t watch it right then.


The Witcher Season 2 Should Be a Hoot

The second season of The Witcher is right around the corner. And it’s bound to be a good time. We all enjoyed the first season. We all enjoyed the video games. And I’m sure plenty of people have enjoyed the books. Now we can enjoy another trailer for season 2!

Like I said, it looks great!

And hey, if that trailer doesn’t do it for you, someone took the trailer and changed the music so that it’s better.

Both trailers are the same, the internet just spruced the second one up a little bit.

The Witcher season 2 arrives on Netflix on Dec. 17!


Sandman and The Witcher Get New Trailers

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.


The Witcher is Getting A Cartoon Prequel

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.


The Witcher TV Show Arrives on Friday!

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.
