To promote Season 2 of the live-action The Witcher series, Netflix shows off an impressive figure of the menacing Myriapod.

With never-before-seen monsters, magical threats, and political plots, the upcoming season certainly has fans eagerly awaiting The Witcher’s return. To build anticipation, a recent Netflix promotional event brought an incredible Witcher monster to life – the Myriapod.
THE WITCHER SEASON 2 MYRIAPOD STATUE
For a promotional event in Madrid, Spain, The Witcher team displayed a life-size Myriapod in all its terrifying glory. Horrendously tall with spiked claw-arms and glooping human limbs, the centipede-like creature is truly a sight to behold.
Even further, its many eyes framed by curled horns create an awesome gruesome look befitting the world of The Witcher. Looking at the real-life figure, it’s understandable why this creature is one of The Witcher‘s biggest monstrous threats.
Additionally, the @RedanianIntel Twitter page revealed more detailed in-progress photos of the Myriapod. After layers of spray-paint and highly detailed brushwork, the blank canvas turned into a contorted mix of human and monster. It’s a wildly impressive transformation that once again shows off just how talented The Witcher production team is. And, without a doubt, it only hints toward how good the creature design in season 2 will be.
Originally, the centipede-like monster was teased in a clip from The Witcher Netflix Twitter. Showing Geralt brandishing his sword, the monster puts up a difficult fight for the seasoned witcher. Of course, it just goes to show that the Myriapod isn’t all fangs and claws, and might pose a serious threat.
Additionally, it seems like the fight is a callback to one of Andrzej Sapkowski’s original Witcher short stories. Initially, the Myriapod appears in Sword of Destiny, a story that precedes the collection The Last Wish. This story is where Geralt and Ciri first meet, as he defends her from a myriapod in Brokilon Forest.
Finally, check out Netflix’s The Witcher: Season 2 starting December 17th. Until then, catch up on season 1, or play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
