Netflix Sets ‘The Witcher’ Anime Film ‘Nightmare of the Wolf’

"The Witcher", which launched December 20, follows the stories of monster hunter Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), sorceress Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) and young princess Ciri (Freya Allan).

Following the news that Netflix's live-action Witcher series has been a massive success, the streaming service has confirmed that it's now working on an animated Witcher movie too.

Meaning, that if a viewer made a decision to watch even just 3-5 minuted of the show before switching to something else, that would still count as a full-on view for The Witcher. It looks like The Witcher is getting more than just two seasons at Netflix.

Netflix has given the green light to another series of the adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski's fantasy novels and the popular game series - The Witcher.

Nielsen said Martin Scorsese's The Irishman drew 13.16 million USA viewers over its first five days of release, with 17.1 million watching at least part of the three-hour-and-30-minute film. While the metrics it used to determine that have become a little controversial (2 minutes' viewing constitutes "watched"?), there's no denying it has hit the zeitgeist. Season 2 was announced on November 13, around six weeks before the release of the first season.

A reported 17 million watched Martin Scorsese's Netflix debut The Irishman. "Other shows come out and they pop and they're dependable and they build and people are going to watch it as soon as they finish what they're watching right now".

"6 Underground", the action movie from director Michael Bay and starring Ryan Reynolds, had a viewer count of 83 million households by its first four weeks.

There had been rumors about potentially spinning off The Witcher into a separate animated film.

More importantly, these new figures are based on Netflix's new methodology, which are looser - though possibly fairer - than previously. Over the three-year life of the series to date, the company says more than 73 million accounts worldwide have tuned in.
