It is quite likely that you have read about TUDUM in the last few days, but you are not sure what it is. This is the name of a global Netflix event named after a word that refers to the characteristic audio-logo that appears when you play any series or movie found in the streaming service’s catalog. With this event, the company hopes to raise the interest of locals and strangers in more than 100 titles, of which it will offer a preview during the duration of this virtual event that will also bring together creators and stars.

One of the most anticipated productions of the year is The Witcher – 67%, which will arrive before the end of the year on the platform with new episodes. Now that Netflix has in its possession an infinite number of possibilities in terms of adaptations of the book series written by Andrzej Sapkowski, known as the Saga del Brujo or the Saga de Geralt de Rivia. On August 23, he already launched an animated film entitled The Witcher: The Wolf’s Nightmare – 93%, which acts as a spin-off and prequel to the live-action series starring Henry Cavill. Its story centers on Vesemir, Geralt’s mentor, who can feel like the polar opposite of his protégé: charming, playful, and with a voracious appetite for the finer things in life.
Now, we hadn’t had an official preview of the second batch of episodes of The witcher since Netflix released a teaser trailer in July of this year, and at the event in question they even appeared Henry cavill and Lauren Schmidt, the showrunner of the series. In two videos released within the framework of TUDUM, the company anticipates us a bit of what we will see in the new season.
Since its arrival at Netflix, the way the company has worked on the series seems somewhat slow. It’s funny, because other productions have been confirmed for several seasons well in advance and even before the event it had not been mentioned that he would return for a third. Perhaps the streaming giant tries to be more careful while producing the new episodes with a lot of attention to detail, and despite the fact that there were always rumors that said we could wait at least five seasons.

The truth is that a property like The Witcher, which although it is an adaptation of the novels also attracts fans of popular video games, is not something that Netflix only wants to have for two or three seasons, but many more. It also depends on how interested you may be Henry cavill, its main star, to return for more episodes, but for now everything seems to be in the way that Netflix wants.
The performance of the second season will be vital so that its executives can have an idea of how it could go in the future, but The Witcher seems to have a while. The company’s efforts are also focused on the production of The Witcher: Blood Origin, another spin-off that will expand the television universe of the Sorcerer Saga. This miniseries will be set in the elven world, 1200 years before The witcher and it will tell a story lost in time about the origin of the first Warlock and the events that led to the worlds of men, monsters and elves becoming one.
Something very positive within everything Netflix is doing is that it has the Polish writer as a consultant in the productions that are on the way, so at least that should be reason enough to hope that the new of The Witcher – 67% is good quality and do justice to the universe he created in the books.
