Last week Netflix announced The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf will be coming to the streaming service, with Lauren Hissrich and Beau de Mayo at the helm. Further synopsis has been revealed by Netflix that dives into the back story of Vesemir. “Long before mentoring Geralt, Vesemir begins his own journey as a witcher after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise.”
#TheWitcher animated film ‘Nightmare of the Wolf’ will focus on Vesemir!

Vesemir is the oldest and most experienced witcher at Kaer Morhen, the keep where witchers are trained. He acted as father figure to Geralt of Rivia, a master in fencing, and looked after other trainee witchers. He was the only witcher to survive the assault on Kaer Morhen and is briefly mentioned by Geralt in The Witcher during his hazed, hallucination in the final episode of the show. He is prominent in the third book of The Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Blood of Elves, which takes place after the events of the current season. Vesemir will likely be part of the the story in season two of the series.
Vesemir’s back story will add to the rich fantasy universe of The Continent and our understanding of the creation of the mutant monster hunters — the witchers.
The voice of Vesemir from the game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is William Roberts, but this character has yet to be cast for season two of the series. It is anyone’s guess who will be the voice of the oldest witcher!
