Everything You Need to Know for Nightmare of the Wolf

We’re a little over a month away from The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf dropping on Netflix, and this morning we were gifted with a lot of new information, so let’s dive in. First up is the trailer, which is an action-packed look at Vesemir’s origins as a Witcher. We start with a voice over reading a description of witchers - they are rogues, without virtue, as well as killing machines, and not fit to be amongst honest men. But that seems to be just what Vesemir wants, if his grin and comment of “Fear and ignorance are good for business” is any indication.

The trailer shows a bunch of snippets detailing both action shots with some comedic moments, monsters galore and magic. The tagline of: Face Your Demons is seen and we are treated to the logo for the movie of the wolf skull.

Also released today was more information on the cast and the characters, with a gallery for each of them. Theo James will play Vesemir whose character:
