Netflix has announced that it has commissioned a third season of The Witcher live action series alongside a second anime film and more.
The announcements came thick and fast during Netflix’s TUDUM festival over the weekend. Ahead of the second season’s arrival this December, the streaming platform announced three new projects set in The Witcher universe. Apart from a third season, we also got word of a new anime film following last month’s The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.
Another new announcement was the commissioning of a “fun-filled Witcher kids and family series”. Details are scant at the moment for it, however, so we’ll have to wait and see. However, we did also get our first video of prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin taking us behind the scenes on the production. It’s currently unclear if either of these will arrive before or after The Witcher’s third season.
Finally, we also got a brief look at a trio of videos from the new season, which also introduced two new characters. First up is Nivellen, said to be an old friend of Geralt’s with a big secret. He’s played by Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju. The official Twitter account then re-introduced us to Geralt’s mentor Vesimir, played in his live action debut by Kim Bodnia.
There’s no date for the third season yet, which is understandable as season two hasn’t dropped yet. But hopefully it won’t be too long to wait. The Witcher Season Two meanwhile kicks off on December 17 on Netflix.
