Did you really think that The Witcher and Netflix would leave fans without a little extra something or two even, after the "6 Days of Witchmas" wrapped? Oh, ye of little faith! Aside from a Jaskier photoshoot and an interview with Roach (the latter we're still big fans of), the show's done right by everyone up to this point. And major props and bonus points to series creator and showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich for the amazing social media work she's done to keep fans invested in the series throughout every aspect of it. So what do we have on tap for Tuesday? an interesting mix of offerings- with a promise of even more out there (if you can find them).
So for a listen to how "The League of Extraordinary Jaskiers" tosses coins to their witchers all around the world, here's a look at the global mix of a song that has at least one lyric that one of you reading this got tattooed on their body- somewhere:
Of course, Hissrich wasn't going to head into the holidays and the start of the new year without offering well-wishes and blessings to the fans who've supported the series. But it wasn't just words alone. To help with this week's celebration of the show's one-year anniversary, Hissrich released some mini-teasers to give viewers a quick catch-up on where things stand with our fine folks before work resumes in 2021 on the second season:
And for those fans looking to do a little hunting on their own, make sure to head over to "The Witcher: Map of the Continent" and check out the Basement Lab. Looks like there might be some leftover "gifts" hanging around:
Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, THE WITCHER is an epic tale of fate and family. The story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified.
Convinced Yennefer's life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent's kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.
