The success of the first season of The Witcher on Netflix (biggest season 1 for a TV series in history, according to the Netflix fourth quarter financial report) is so great that Los Gatos has not just ordered a second season – with a trailer and the logo of each episode revealed at WitcherCon, but also two other projects.

This trailer confirms that the story takes place in the youth of Vesemir, then a young witcher looking for contracts (werewolves, ghouls, demons) and socially categorized as an outcast.
