Ever since the rise of Netflix’s The Witcher, both the book series and video games have become increasingly popular. The show is currently in its third season and is expected to release the fourth season sometime in 2025. The book series, which the video games and TV show are based on, currently has eight books, with the newest being published in 2013 and the first in 1992.

However, author Andrzej Sapkowski recently announced that the series would be getting a new book. After a decade since the last book was released, he reported that he was working on new content for a new book in the series but did not say when it would be released or published. He also did not state what the new book would be about, but it is rumored to either be a prequel or a side story, as the main Witcher story came to a conclusion in Lady of the Lake twenty-four years ago.
