The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf trailer puts Vesemir in the tub

1100 27/07/2021

Following its unexpectedly big success with The Witcher, Netflix announced in January 2020 that it was diving even deeper into the property with an anime film called Nightmare of the Wolf. Rather than following the adventures of Geralt, though, Nightmare of the Wolf will focus on his mentor and fellow School of the Wolf follower, Vesemir.

Netflix dropped a teaser during WitcherCon that didn't strike me as especially remarkable, but now we've got a full-blown trailer to watch and I have to admit that my interest in the show is a lot higher than it was. This is obviously only a thin slice of the whole thing, but it comes off as a more light-hearted take on the world of The Witcher than we've seen previously: Tragic tales are out, fast talk and wisecracks are in. And while the White Wolf is a silver fox, young, unscarred Vesemir is just five-alarm sexy from top to bottom. (I do find the uncanny similarity to Adam Jensen a little distracting, though.)

Speaking of unscarred, The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said in the trailer breakdown below that she's excited to get a look at what the world of Witchers was like before their decline, which is what we see in the games and Henry Cavill-starring Netflix series.
