The Witcher series shows us The Myriapod, as Blood Origin wraps up filming
The second season of The Witcher series, which will bring the return of Geralt of Rivia, Ciri and Yennefer to Netflix next month, is just three weeks away. We’ve already seen what it looks like in the official trailer for the new episodes. Still, the official networks are now activating the promotional machine, allowing us to find out a few more details.
Without going any further, the series’ own account has shared a video of less than twenty seconds in which we are introduced to a new monster, The Myriapod, or myriapod, in the absence of knowing what the official translation is. It may remind us of some of the confrontations we had in the last expansion of CD Projekt’s game, Blood and Wine, but it seems to point more to the description of Andrzej Sapkowki’s (author of the books) stories, where the witcher has to face a similar creature at a specific moment.
New monsters await. Are you ready? ⚔️

The scene coincides with the promises of those responsible for the series, who assured some time ago that in the second season, they would include more fights as a very repeated request by the fans of the first season.

In addition to the main series, it’s worth remembering that a miniseries, Blood Origin, is in production, set 1,200 years earlier when the worlds of monsters, men and elves merge into one and the first warlock emerges. Filming has finished, as confirmed by showrunner Declan de Barra, who leaves the door open for further seasons.
The second season of Netflix’s The Witcher series premieres on the platform on 17 December.
