Tudum was a recent event hosted by Netflix that was some global fan event thingy. I don't really know, nor do I care. The important takeaway from this event, at least as far as this site is concerned, is the fact that we have some new news concerning The Witcher series, or should I say serieses? I shouldn't, because that's not a word.

During this Tudum event, Netflix showed off a little bit of the second season for The Witcher series, the one starring Henry Cavill. They also confirmed that The Witcher has been renewed for a third season on the streaming service.

That's all well and good but then came the curveball. The Witcher showrunner and executive producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich announced two additional Witcher related projects. One project is a sequel to The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, the animated film that came out just about a month ago.

The other project is a new series, based off of The Witcher, that is aimed at children.

"I can confirm we'll be making a second Witcher anime film as well as a fun-filled kids and family series."
Right. Because when I think of The Witcher, I think of something that is "fun-filled" for kids and families. You know, just take away the blood, the visceral combat, the nudity, the stuffed unicorns, the throwing babies into ovens, the rotting corpses, the everything with the Bloody Baron, the cannibalism, and the sex, then you're left with a very wholesome game. The Witcher is very much a series that, even if you stripped out all of the non-kid friendly stuff from it, is something that shouldn't be introduced to children in the first place.

The segment about The Witcher begins at roughly the 3:05:00 mark in the embedded video below. The bit about the two new Witcher shows begins around the 3:10:39 mark.
