According to the latest quarterly report shared by Netflix, The Witcher series with Henry Cavill became “the biggest season one TV series ever”: over the first four weeks since its release, 76M member households chose to watch adventures of Geralt. Although the measurements of what counts as a view have been changed to as little as two minutes from the previous 70 percent of an episode/series. Season 2 has been confirmed and will arrive in 2021.
However, does it mean that for another year fans are stuck re-reading the books and replaying CDPR’s game series? Not at all! Via the official Twitter account, Netflix has confirmed the development of the Witcher anime Film. Called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, it will feature a new threat facing the Continent.
The rumors are true, a new Witcher story is in the works! The anime film, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, will take us back to a new threat facing the Continent. Brought to you by the Witcher team @LHissrich and @BeauDeMayo, and Studio Mir the studio behind Legend of Korra.
