The Witcher producer teases next anime: “The source is entirely from Sapkowski”


The second season of Netflix’s The Witcher is fast approaching, but there are many more adventures in the pipeline in the Witcher Cinematic Universe as there’s Blood Origin, that family-friendly series and the next anime project.

Speaking to Naekranie, The Witcher executive producer Tomek Baginski confirmed the start of the work on the next anime: “We’re at a fairly early stage, I’ve recently read the first draft”.

Baginski also teased a tiny bit about the story: “It is based on one of the stories we know from the world of The Witcher, so the source is entirely from Sapkowski books, but which story I would prefer to keep a secret.”

In an earlier interview from the Season 2 press junkets, showrunner Lauren Hissrich confirmed that this next anime film will not be a continuation of Nightmare of the Wolf and will not be following Vesemir, but rather some other side characters from the saga.

Here’s the full interview with Baginski:

The Witcher Season 2 arrives on December 17, 2021 with Blood Origin arriving to Netflix sometime in mid-2022. Follow Redanian Intelligence for more news!

  1. I think it was said by the producers that Season 2 is also based on the books of Sapkowski. Having seen the thin result, I wonder what “based on” exactly is supposed to mean. May be it is like in this Polish anecdote – imagine a scene that could take place in the Witcher setting. A guy sits by a fire over which a cauldron is placed, filled with boiling water. The guy boasts in front of the others sitting by the fire that he was a mage, and can make a soup purely based on water and a nail. He tosses a big old iron nail into the boiling water. As the water keeps boiling, he says to a young lad next to him: You have a nice carrot there. Would you mind handing it to me. The lad does, and the guy puts it into the cauldron. He tells an older man sitting across the fireplace: You have a nice pair of potatoes. Would you mind handing them over. So the oldtimer does, and the guy puts it into the cauldron. He goes on addressing an old lady next to the old man: You have a nice cauliflower there, could you please hand it to me? Guy puts it into the cauldron. Then to a trapper coming to the fireplace: You caught some nice pair of rabbits there. Mind giving them to me?…and so on. After a while, and some stirring and cooking, the guy takes out a big spoon and fills the bowls of the people around the fire with some wholesome soup. You see, he claims proudly, I have cooked a soup entirely from boiling water and a nail.
