  • by

Over the weekend, Netflix held its virtual Tudum event, where it unveiled first looks, panels, and teasers of some of its upcoming shows. Amongst those reveals? Word that its hit fantasy series The Witcher is coming back for a third season. And that’s not all: The streaming service revealed that it’s producing another animated film, and a “kids and family” series set in the same world.

In the last decade or so, Netflix has been working hard to build up its catalog of original content, launching its own big franchises that audiences can tune into over and over again. The Witcher has been a huge hit for the streaming service, and it followed up its first season with an animated film, Nightmare of the Wolf last month.

During the Tudum event, the streaming service released a big trailer that brings audiences up to speed on where the show has been ahead of its upcoming second season (out on December 17th), which shows off a bit of what to expect in the upcoming season—Geralt will take Ciri to Witcher school to begin her training in killing monsters, plus some new Witchers, monsters, and epic landscapes.

The streaming service also released a pair of first-look clips for the upcoming season, featuring Game of Thrones‘ Kristofer Hivju as a cursed gang leader named Nivellen.

Another clip features Geralt and Ciri in a bit of danger:

Beyond revealing their existence, Netflix didn’t reveal much about the upcoming anime or family series. Neither appear to have a title or release date as of yet.
