Even More Witcher - Netflix Announces The Witcher: Blood Origin

Netflix announced a new production set in the Witcher universe. It will be a prequel called The Witcher: Blood Origin, which will take us 1200 years into the past.

The new series will lack Geralt - we'll see another witcher instead.

Last week brought with it a handful of reports about the second season of Netflix's The Witcher. However, this is not all that the platform is preparing for us within the Witcher's universe. Announced on Twitter, The Witcher: Blood Origin is a spin-off set in a world created by Andrzej Sapkowski. The Pole takes an active part in the works on the series, which was confirmed by Lauren S. Hissrich, who, however, will not be Blood Origin's showrunner. Her role will be taken over by Declan de Barra, and Hissrich will support him as the second executive producer.

The Witcher: Blood Origin will be the prequel to the main series. The action will take us 1200 years back and across six episodes we will learn the forgotten story of the first witcher and the "the worlds of monsters, men and elves merging into one". Decal de Barra also mentioned (via LADbible) the desire to show the world of the latter race in the context of "the rise and fall of civilization". So apparently we will see the first meeting of elves and people after the arrival of the latter on the Continent known from Sapkowski's stories, as well as The Conjunction of the Spheres. Perhaps we will also meet the ancestors of Ciri, although so far Netflix has not revealed any details. We don't even know when the actual production of the series will begin.
