Every upcoming show and movie
Netflix will continue to expand the world of The Witcher with more seasons, TV shows, and movies. Here are all the upcoming projects.
The world of The witcher will continue to grow at Netflix with more shows and movies, and here’s what the future holds for Geralt and the other characters. The fantasy genre is home to a variety of worlds with their own mythologies, and one of the most popular is that of The witcher, created by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The witcher is a series of short stories and novels that became very popular after branching out into video games, and after being adapted into a film and TV show in Poland in 2001 and 2002, an English version arrived on Netflix in December 2019.
by netflix The witcher approached the source material differently with a non-linear narrative that was confusing at times (as it took place in different places and points in time) but allowed audiences to get to know the three main characters in the story: the title witcher Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), the witch Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra) and Ciri (Freya Allan), the crown princess of Cintra who has her own powers. The streaming giant was well aware of what’s in it The witcher and renewed it for a second season ahead of the premiere’s release, and its popularity and success has even made way for other TV shows and movies.
The world of The witcher is very large and full of a variety of characters and creatures, so one TV show wasn’t going to be enough to explore it all. The witcher already got an anime prequel movie titled The wolf’s nightmare, which focused on the story of Vesemir, Geralt’s mentor, but there are other stories waiting to be told. During Netflix’s TUDUM Virtual Event, plans for more TV shows and movies from around the world of The witcher were announced, and here’s what the future holds for the show.
The Witcher Season 2
As mentioned above, The witcher has been renewed for a second season ahead of the premiere, and it will arrive on December 17, 2021. The witcher season 1 was based on the books The last wish and Sword of fate, which are collections of short stories, and season 2 will jump into the main saga as it will be mainly based on the novel Blood of the Elves. As such, The witcher Season 2 will follow Geralt and Ciri on their way to Kaer Morhen, the former dungeon where Wolf School witers were trained, like Geralt and his mentor, Vesemir (Kim Bodnia). Ciri will be trained there by Geralt, Vesemir and other witcher and childhood friends of Geralt, Eskel (Basil Eidenbenz), Lambert (Paul Bullion) and Cöen (Yasen Atour), but that doesn’t mean their problems are over. Outside the walls of Kaer Morhen, Yennefer has been captured by the Nilfgaardian army and a variety of creatures continue to create chaos, and only a witcher like Geralt can help.
The Witcher Season 3
Similar to what happened to The witcher season 2, a third season has been officially announced ahead of the season 2 release. Of course, the plot details on The witcher season 3 is currently unknown as it has to be seen where season 2 will take Geralt, Ciri, Yennefer and more, but if the writers and producers decide to continue adapting the books in order then season 3 could cover the novel. Time for contempt. However, it should be noted that The witcher season 2 returns to The last wish with the story “A Grain of Truth”, which introduced Nivellen (Kristofer Hivju), so it is possible that season 3 also adapts some news from The last wish and Sword of fate to further expand this universe.
The Witcher: Origin of Blood
In July 2020, Netflix announced a spinoff prequel TV series titled The Witcher: Origin of Blood. Unlike the previous film The Witcher: The Wolf’s Nightmare, which is an animated feature film and tells part of Vesemir’s story (and starred a young Geralt right at the end), Origin of blood is a live-action miniseries and takes place 1,200 years before the events of the main television series. Origin of blood will explore the origin of the witers and the story of the very first witcher, and also follow the events that led to the Conjunction of the Spheres, when the worlds of men, monsters and elves became one. Join the cast of The Witcher: Origin of Blood are Sophia Brown, Laurence O’Fuarain, Michelle Yeoh, Lenny Henry, Mirren Mack, Dylan Moran and Jacob Collins-Levy.
New Witcher animated film
Along with the announcement of Season 3, Netflix revealed that a new animated film is also in the works. This decision is probably due to the success of The Witcher: The Wolf’s Nightmare, the first animated film in this version of Sapkowski’s stories, which was very well received by critics and viewers. Details on the story of this new animated film are unknown, so it could be a continuation of The wolf’s nightmare (especially since Season 2 will feature Vesemir), focus on another character from the main series, or tell a story separate from the main series.
Family witcher show
Perhaps the biggest surprise of The witcher during Netflix’s TUDUM event was the announcement of a “children’s and family series set in the world of The Witcher”. This has drawn a lot of criticism from viewers who don’t get a feel for the universe of The witcher can be translated into kid-friendly material, but that’s actually a wise move by Netflix, as the main series’ content is more mature, dark, and gory, which means it’s not for all viewers. A kid-friendly Witcher The series would make this universe accessible to a wider audience and attract more fans to it. Of course, details about the history of the child and the family The witcher The fallout is a mystery, so it’s unclear whether it will be just Geralt and Ciri or whether it will focus on other characters with less dark backstories.
