This is a live article and it will be updated as new details about The Witcher Sirens of the Deep come our way. This is what we know so far.
Netflix has announced a new anime project called "The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep," which is set to excite fans of the original series. This new anime aims to continue the success of its predecessor, "The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf." The Korean Studio Mir, which created "Nightmare of the Wolf" and "The Legend of Korra," will be producing "Sirens of the Deep," although details about the writer and director are still unknown. However, it is speculated that Kwang Il Han may return to direct following his success on "Nightmare of the Wolf."
For music lovers, it is worth noting that Joseph Trapanese, who is known for his work on "The Witcher" and "Shadow and Bone," will be composing the score. Lauren Hissrich, the showrunner of The Witcher series, will be an executive producer on the project, ensuring a cohesive vision for the Witcher universe. Here's a sneak peek into what we know so far.
The plot, while not officially confirmed, is rumored to be an adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski's short story, "A Little Sacrifice." This tale, a dark reinterpretation of "The Little Mermaid," focuses on the complex relationship between a mermaid named Sh’eenaz and a human prince, Agloval. In this narrative, Geralt of Rivia plays a pivotal role as a translator, caught in the middle of this trans-species love story.
Christina Wren, known for roles in "Man of Steel" and "Will Trent," is set to portray the bard Essi Daven, a character from Sapkowski's story. There's also anticipation for the return of Joey Batey's Jaskier, alongside Geralt of Rivia. The voice actor for Geralt remains a mystery, with fans speculating it could be either Henry Cavill, who recently left the live-action series, or his successor, Liam Hemsworth.
Netflix hasn't yet announced a specific release date for "The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep." Predictions range from late 2023 to some time in 2024. Stay tuned for more updates on this and other upcoming Witcher projects, including the new prequel series, "The Rats."
Since early 2022, "Sirens of the Deep" has been in active development. However, given the nature of anime production, updates on its progress are scarce. Fans are eagerly waiting for more news on the state of completion.---
