The Witcher goes anime in Netflix’s Nightmare of the Wolf trailer

Determined to make The Witcher our latest CINEMATIC UNIVERSE, Netflix has been working on a couple prequels to their tale of Henry Cavill taking baths in a wig. Here’s a preview of the first of those, the anime-inspired The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.

Don’t worry: bathing is still heavily involved.

The animated series focuses on the early years of Geralt’s mentor, Vesemir. He’s also a Witcher, and he looks like he was kicked off FBoy Island for vaping too much. As it goes with Witchers, he’s paid to kill some monsters or whatever in the woods, and he does so at some point between baths.

Assuming you’ve tossed $13.99 to your streamer, you can check out The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf August 23.
