Netflix called , and the is already in production. Now the streaming platform has confirmed that an anime based on the show is also in the works.
In a tweet Wednesday, Netflix said a Witcher anime film called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is in production, with showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich and show writer Beau DeMayo working on it. The animation will be handled by South Korean-based Studio Mir, which made The Legend of Korra as well as Voltron: Legendary Defender.
According to Netflix, the film “takes us back to a new threat facing the Continent.” This likely means the anime will be a prequel or will explain what happens between the first and second seasons.
Rumors of an animated Witcher film began circulating Tuesday when a Writers Guild of America entry listed the new project. Hissrich tweeted Wednesday that she’s been keeping the anime a secret for over a year.
