If you can't get enough of The Witcher in the The Witcher Netflix series or the other The Witcher Netflix series or that The Witcher Netflix animated movie, how about this: yet another The Witcher Netflix animated movie!
Netflix has announced The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep, an animated feature pitting a cartoon Geralt against a society of merfolk. It's probably not a surprise that Henry Cavill won't be voicing Geralt, considering he walked away from his Witcher duties last year, but that's OK: the wonderful Doug Cockle, voice of Geralt in the videogame series, is taking the role instead. Damn straight.
Don't grab your remote control yet, though. The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep is scheduled for late 2024.
"Geralt of Rivia, a mutated monster hunter, is hired to investigate a series of attacks in a seaside village and finds himself drawn into a centuries-old conflict between humans and merpeople," Netflix says. "He must count on friends—old and new—to solve the mystery before the hostilities between the two kingdoms escalate into all-out war."
The announcement teaser at the top doesn't show much, but check out the slightly longer announcement teaser below in which Geralt is hired to help a seaside town with monster slaying, but gets quickly drawn into a old, festering conflict between the surface world and a militarized undersea society.

And let me provide an answer to an inevitable question: yes, Geralt does appear topless in a bath in the animated film. Of course he does:
