Netflix has said The Witcher has produced major ratings success despite mixed reviews. In its first four weeks the first batch of episodes drew in 76million households. Does it mean there are bigger plans for the second series?

Fans on Reddit have been discussing a new animated film to tie in with the second series.

Before the first season was even released on Netflix there were rumours of some kind of spin-off.

After the series came out executive producer Tomek Baginski made comments about some surprises before the release of the second season.

No other details were given but there was talk of him referring to an animated spin-off.

Followers of the show have turned to the Writers Guild of America for clues.

The project is an animated film by Netflix titled The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.

It is being written by staff writer Beau DeMayo who worked on some episodes in the first season.

Fans do not have to worry as it is not likely a second series will be dropped for the film.

Season two of The Witcher is due to start filming next month ready for a February release date.

However it is believed the film may be released before the second series.

It is not known whether The Witcher Geralt of Rivia (Cavill) will feature centrally in the film as no other details have been released.
