On Friday, Netflix and CD Projekt Red teamed-up for the first-ever WitcherCon to celebrate the epic fantasy franchise, and the streaming giant didn't just reveal the release date and episode titles of all 7 episodes of The Witcher Season 2, but the company also revealed new details about the upcoming The Witcher anime series, Nightmare of the Wolf.
At Witcher-Con, Netflix released the first teaser for Nightmare of the Wolf, and announced the official release date, August 23. The teaser, which you can watch below, gives us our first look at Vesemir, who's a Witcher who mentored Geralt during his training. He's a friend and ally to both Geralt and Ciri, and the new anime series will explore his story. Vesemir is also expected to appear in The Witcher Season 2.
Last year, Netflix announced that it's working on an animated film starring Vesemir, and the animation of the film is being co-produced by Studio Mir, the team who worked on Legend of Korra and Dota: Dragon's Blood.
