Netflix is releasing a new animated series based on The Witcher. Its title will be THE WITCHER: Nightmare of the Wolf. This new series will serve as a prequel to the main Witcher stories. And much like the live-action series featuring Warhammer 40,000 fanboy, PC Master Race member, and current “King of the Geeks”, Henry Cavill (Superman, Justice League Snyder Cut), Netflix will also be streaming it. And now, they have released a brand new trailer for the anime:
Here is how Netflix describes the anime’s story:
