First look at Upcoming Anime, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf

The first ever WitcherCon is happening now, and it is a celebration bringing the fans of the tv show, the books, and the games together for the ultimate virtual convention. Earlier, Netflix revealed the details about season two of The Witcher. Now we have a sneak peek and release date of the animated series: The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf!

The world of The Witcher expands in this anime origin story: Before Geralt, there was his mentor Vesemir -- a swashbuckling young witcher who escaped a life of poverty to slay monsters for coin. But when a strange new monster begins terrorizing a politically-fraught kingdom, Vesemir finds himself on a frightening adventure that forces him to confront the demons of his past.
