There is just a little over a month to go before the release of The Witcher: Blood Origin, the highly anticipated limited prequel to The Witcher. Ahead of the series launch, Netflix has released an all-new teaser trailer, which you can watch below:
Set in a medieval-inspired world on a fictional landmass known as The Continent, The Witcher is Netflix’s television adaptation of the beloved high fantasy book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. The series follows the story of Geralt of Rivia, a solitary magical monster hunter, Crown Princess Ciri of Cintra, and the sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg, exploring formative events at different points in their lives before merging into a single timeline.
The Witcher: Blood Origin tells a tale lost to history: the creation of the prototype Witcher. Set 1200 years before the main series, Blood Origin centres around the events that led to the pivotal Conjunction of the Spheres. During this cataclysmic event, the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merge to become one. We’ll also meet Scian, the last survivor of an Elven tribe whose mission is to retrieve a blade stolen from her people. We don’t know much about the plot but can only hope it will measure up to the all-star cast, including action star and acclaimed stunt performer Michelle Yeoh and comedian Dylan Moran.
The Witcher: Blood Origin is a four-part limited series that premieres exclusively on Netflix on December 25th, 2022. We don’t have an exact date, but Season 3 of the Witcher wrapped in early September, and we expect it to debut during the Northern Hemisphere’s Summer in 2023. Netflix has already renewed The Witcher for a controversial season 4. Byron Bay’s Liam Hemsworth will replace leading actor Henry Cavill as the series’ titular character, Geralt of Rivia.
