Production on The Witcher Season 2 might be slow right now, but that doesn't mean the Continent is getting boring. Netflix has just unveiled the official logo for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, the new anime based on the fantasy series.
There is little doubt that Netflix is planning to expand on the Witcher Universe. After all, the show was one of the biggest hits on the streaming service last year. With that in mind, Netflix has already confirmed the prequel show The Witcher: Blood Origin, which takes place centuries before Geralt of Rivia's story. In addition to that, the spin-off anime Nightmare of the Wolf was announced, and the feature film now has its own logo.
The official Witcher Twitter account had previously announced a promo called "6 Days of Witchmas" where they dropped awesome behind-the-scenes looks at the show's first season as well as never-before-seen footage. For the last day of the promo, the account conducted a poll asking fans if they wanted to see the logo for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf or go with the "Law of Surprise". Although the latter won, fans were still surprised to see the logo for the anime.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf will actually reveal Vesemir's origin story rather than focus on Geralt of Rivia. It's a perfect prequel anime that should help prepare fans for The Witcher Season 2.

In the meantime, there has been an awesome update on The Witcher Season 2 although production on the show is currently slowing down after Henry Cavill's injury. Netflix has shared a page from the script of the upcoming season, and it teases the arrival of a beloved character from the books.
The page from the screenplay was shared on the official Witcher page on Netflix and it reveals the details of a sequence featuring Geralt of Rivia and an unfortunate family. The family arrives in a town close to a dark forest, where they realize that there aren't any signs of life. When the father knocks on a closed tavern's door, his wife is attacked while his back is turned.
Unfortunately, that's not the only terrifying thing that happens in the scene. The man himself is also attacked and dragged into the darkness, much to the horror of his young daughter. The girl then runs away towards a mansion, which appears to be the only house that is lit.
Fans who have read the books will be quick to note that the girl is Kira and the mansion belongs to Nivellen, the monstrous character who appears in the novels.
The Witcher Season 2 has not yet been given an official release date but is expected to premiere on Netflix late next year.
