With the massive success of The Witcher tv show (or streaming show, can we even call them TV at this point?) it’s no surprise that Netflix is going to want to milk the franchise for all it’s worth, what with animated movies and talks of a kids series. Ahead of the release of the highly anticipated second season of the mainline show, the show’s official Twitter page shared an update that the franchise is getting even bigger. First of all, there’s another animated film coming. The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf just released a month ago, telling an animated rendition of Vesemir’s backstory. That apparently did well, so now we’re getting another animated spin-off.
There’s no word on what this spin-off will be, but let’s all hope it doesn’t focus on Dandelion. How I loathe him. But that’s not all for the surprises. The show is getting a spinoff for “kids and families” as well. That’s right, if you’ve ever wanted to get your Witcher on without them seeing all the graphic images associated with the dark fantasy series, you can finally do so without worrying about having them exclusively refer to other people as “whoresons” for years on end. What a time to be alive.
The Witcher getting second animated film and a kids show
Much like with the second animated film, we have no idea what this spinoff could be. Just my luck and the animated tale of Dandelion will be backed up by a live-action puppet show starring Dandelion as he blatantly lies about his past exploits. Stupid bard. Additionally, season 3 of The Witcher has been officially confirmed, which is no surprise, but at least give us the second season before you started teasing the third. What’s next? You’re going to start announcing other Polish dark fantasy adaptations before you’re through with this one? Focus on one thing at a time, Netflix. You’re all over the place.
