New The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt DLC based on the Netflix show is coming this year. Release dates for The Witcher Season 2 and The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf anime have also been announced.

The Witcher has quickly become a popular media franchise ever since the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Since then, it has expanded into a live-action Netflix show, an upcoming animated movie, multiple side games (including one focused on the beloved Gwent card game), and more. Now, we've learned about a bunch of cool new stuff that's on the way!

When is The Witcher 3 Netflix DLC Release Date?

The Witcher 3 Netflix DLC will be arriving for free sometime later in 2021. A specific release date has not yet been announced.

"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt next-gen update is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC this year!" read a tweet on the game's official Twitter account. "Here’s a sneak peek of our updated cover art. Spoiler alert: we also prepared some free DLCs inspired by [The Witcher live-action Netflix show.] More info coming soon!"

For the moment, all we know is that some new free The Witcher 3 DLC is on the way. We don't know for sure what this DLC will be, though  it could feature new quests, new items, new locations, or something else entirely. We're sure to find out more details in the coming weeks and months.

When is The Witcher Season 2 Release Date?

The Witcher Season 2 release date will be December 17, 2021, according to a tweet from Netflix.

Thus far, The Witcher Netflix show has introduced some fan-favorite characters in the live-action universe and debuted a catchy song that resulted in a lot of awesome fan covers. Soon, this epic tale will continue — and hopefully, it will further expand the world of The Witcher in interesting ways.

The live-action Netflix show has some promising new content on the way. A rather impressive Kaer Morhen set has been built and was shown off earlier today, although many details about what's coming in Season 2 have been kept under wraps. For now, you can watch the first season of the show on Netflix.

When is The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf Release Date?

The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf release date will be August 23, 2021, arriving exclusively on Netflix according to a tweet from gaming industry tweeter @Wario64.

The release date announcement was revealed via a new short trailer that shows some scenes from this upcoming animation. There's still a lot we don't yet know, but I'm putting my money on a Witcher fighting a werewolf at some point based on what I've seen in the trailer. You can set a reminder to watch The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf on Netflix when it launches late next month.

For now, you can look forward to some new Netflix-themed DLC for The Witcher 3 arriving later this year. If you haven't yet jumped into the game, you can buy it for PC via Steam starting at $7.99 or your regional equivalent, an 80% discount that is only going to last for one more day. You can also buy the game on DRM-free retailer GOG at the same discounted price. Otherwise, you can buy the game for other platforms via its official website.
