Netflix is gearing up to serve up some bonus content for The Witcher fans who just can’t wait to check out season 2 of the highly anticipated fantasy series.
On Wednesday (July 21), the streamer unveiled the first teaser trailer for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf— an all new animal origin story that takes place long before we catch up with Gerald in the live-action series.
Nightmare of the Wolf is set to follow along on the adventures of Vesemir, who later becomes Geralt’s mentor. As a young witcher, Vesemir escaped his life of poverty to slay monsters for coins. 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.
