Netflix is considering a new concept for the fans, but apart from that, no information has been heard about it. No one is aware of the content the live-action prequel will include.

A Potential Prequel Featuring Lambert, Coen & Eskel Witchers
Around the internet, the gossip about the next spinoff of the Witcher Series is reported, which would include the three characters from the Witcher Series, Lambert, Coen and Eskel. All the three Witchers went to the School of the Wolf with Geralt of Rivia and were trained by Vesemir. Lambert was shown as a Witcher who doesn’t like outsiders very much, as in the Witcher Season 2, he treats Ciri very badly. However, Coen wasn’t like that and helped Ciri through her training.
Eskel Witcher was one of the dearest friends and like a brother to Geralt. In the Witcher Season 2, he was shown bit by a Leshy, due to which he did some damage in their hometown, Kaer Morhen.
As Eskel died in Witcher Season 2, the potential spinoff would probably cover the events before Season 2. Moreover, in the Season 2 of The Witcher: Unlocked panel, Lauren S. Hissrich, the showrunner, joked about the potential spinoff, including Lambert & Coen.

However, the 2D anime film, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, received a lot of positive reviews and was praised by the audience for its new art style. This kind of editing requires a lot of time, so the next anime shouldn’t be expected anytime soon.
