Netflix Introduces the World of the Witcher With MCU-Like Artwork

The world of Netflix’s The Witcher is growing slowly but surely and the streaming giant seems to want audiences to know that.

On social media, Netflix announced changes to the franchise’s page on the streaming service and unveiled brand new artwork for what it is calling The World of The Witcher. The illustration features Henry Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan’s Ciri, and Anya Chalotra’s Yennefer of Vengerberg, along with other key characters across The Witcher’s two seasons and the anime, Nightmare of the Wolf.

Season 3 of The Witcher is currently filming and is set to primarily adapt the events of Andrzej Sapkowski’s Time of Contempt. That isn’t all Netflix has in store for fans. Last year at the TUDUM event, showrunner Lauren S. Hissirch announced several projects are in development. Along with the upcoming prequel series, The Witcher: Blood Origin, the creatives are developing a family-friendly Witcher show and a brand-new anime project.

The World of the Witcher on the Path
At the time of writing, Netflix has not released any details concerning the latter two. However, reports from earlier this year suggest the anime film’s title will be The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep. This has not been officially confirmed by Netflix. It’s also worth noting that the title may be subject to change over the course of the project’s development. It is being produced by Studio Mir, the same South Korea-based studio behind The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf and other iconic anime projects such as The Legend of Korra.

The prequel series, The Witcher: Blood Origin is speculated to be headed for a release date in December, though Netflix has not yet made any official announcements regarding its premiere. The show is undergoing significant reshoots and the project recently had its episode count cut down from six to four episodes. The reason for this change is not yet known.
Blood Origin is set 1,200 years before the events of the main Witcher saga and draws inspiration from the bits and pieces of the Continent’s ancient history mentioned throughout the novels. It will introduce a number of new characters, unique to Netflix’s Witcher universe, such as Voleth Meir, who made her debut in Season 2 of The Witcher; as well as the series’ core cast. While many of these will be entirely original characters, audiences can expect at least a few familiar faces from the novels, including King of the Wild Hunt, Eredin Bréacc Glas.
