WitcherCon has come and gone for the first time to unveil the launch date for Stage 2, Wolf’s Nightmare, the first official Witcher event, the cooperation with Netflix and CDPR, a very awaited personalities and much more. Don’t worry, if you missed the event, it’s all about The Witch Season 2 and the anime Nightmare of the wolf.
The heavy guns are going to start with us. The date for The Witcher Saison 2, which came on Netflix on December 17, 2021 along with the long-anticipated first appearance teaser was officially revealed at WitcherCon.
An official poster focused on Geralt and Ciri was accompanied by the announcement. Their friendship and relationship appears to be an important focus in the next season.
A teaser for The Witcher: The Nightmare of the Wolf anime movie was the second greatest thing we got at WitcherCon, together with its release date. A little later, our loving Uncle Vesemir, who’s not the weisy and occasionally cranky uncle we know, was also a tiny but crucial first glance.
In conclusion we had a segment for the movie Making Of, where we are taken behind the scenes of the Nightmare of the Wolf by Lauren Hissrich and the Studio Mir createurs:
Netflix has published a poster for Nightmare of the Wolf, last but not least.
First-look photos of new and returning characters
We also have three pictures of Geralt and Ciri from Episode 1, Ciri and Lambert from Episode 3 and Jaskier from Episode 5 during WitcherCon.
Episode titles of The Witcher Season 2 and their logos
We have the names of all episodes in the forthcoming season in another pretty fascinating video. Now, only one, the finale of the season. As in Season 1, every episode has its own Michal Niewiara logo. See his ArtStation up. Go check up.
Fun, we knew three of them, but believed they might be working and susceptible to change and did not understand that they were the actual ones.
Featurettes with Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan and Lauren Hissrich
In WitcherCon’s first half we have a new feature with Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan, Converging Destinies, which takes us behind the scenes of the second year of the season. However, several intriguing sets may be seen.
In a second segment, showroom runner Lauren Hissrich leads us inside Kaer Morhen, where we can witness gaming shots, Season 2 and even Wolf’s Nightmare:
While a brief teaser with Yennefer was not a part of WitcherCon itself, between the two broadcasts it was published. Just after Ciri and Geralt teases, it was predicted two weeks ago but better late than ever.
PANEL: The Witcher Season 2: Deck of Destiny
The first panel that we saw was the Destiny Deck with Lauren Hissrich and the casting members of Anya Chalotra (Yennefer), Freya Allan (Ciri), Mimi M. Khayisa (Fringilla), and Paul Bullion (Lambert), together with host Julia Hardy (Jaskier). In a longer post emphasising the panels, we will concentrate on what everyone has said about season 2.
We saw a little view of the leshy from season 2 during this panel as well:
PANEL: Tales from the White Wolf: A Spotlight Conversation with Henry Cavill
Host Josh Horowitz sat down in a discussion about The Witcher with Henry Cavill in the last panel of the event, and they touched a little on Stage 2 too. Again, a little thereafter we are going to delve into what Henry stated.
Humans of the Continent: Crew who helped make The Witcher come to life
In another part of the series, the team working untiringly behind the scenes to create the finest possible version of the programme have been underlined by WitcherCon. We have featurettes with Matt Fraser and Dan Gregory, Armorer Nick Jeffries, Ashruti Patel, PA Base Gerogia Rolfe, and Jordan McInnis, assistant director.
PANEL: Geralt of T-Rivia
A humorous table was organised with the performing designers of CDPR, Philipp Weber and Blazej Augustynek to discuss the universe of the Witcher novels, games, and series, by Lauren Hissrich, writer and showcaser of Blood Origin Declán de Barra, and by a fine artist. Below, look at it:
The Witcher 3: Complete Edition to feature free DLC with Netflix items
We obtained the smallest piece of information concerning the next generation upgrade for The Witcher 3 in a real CDPR way. We got a free DLC consisting of several Netflix inspired articles that tied it to Netflix. Swords, weapons and maybe more. It was scant for details.
A word from Andrzej Sapkowski
Last but not least, WitcherCon opened a message from the Witcher’s main person: writer Andrzej Sapkowki himself, who welcome us all to see and express the hope, perhaps WitcherCon 2022, to see us in person next time!
And that’s for WitcherCon’s Netflix side. All of the things that come to our way are analysed and digested so stay tuned!
