The Witcher fans are still processing the second season that was released on Netflix last month. But, fans are also getting ready for The Witcher: Blood Origin, a prequel series that is set 1200 years before the events of the original series starring Henry Cavill.
While the third season of The Witcher original series is set to begin production soon (showrunner already revealed that scripting phase is finished), Blood Origin wrapped production last year, and it’s set to premiere on Netflix in 2022. We don’t know when the third season will be released, but Blood Origin should fill the gap in case we need to wait two years again for the next season of the original series.
Redanian Intelligence previously reported that Jaskier, a known character who’s played by Joey Batey In the original series could appear in the prequel. What’re 1200 years for him? According to the recent report, Jaskier will have a scene in a tavern where he’ll, typically for him, try to sign a particular tale until he gets interrupted by an elf who will point out that’s not how the tale happened. After that, the elf will tell how it really went down. It’s a pretty detailed report, but also currently unconfirmed.
“Set in an elven world 1200 years before the world of The Witcher, Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time – the origin of the very first Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal ‘conjunction of the spheres,’ when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.” — The Witcher: Blood Origin, synopsis
Blood Origin will be a mini-series that will also explain to us the origin of Eredin, the main antagonist of the video game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which makes us even more excited about this prequel series. The release date for The Witcher: Blood Origin is still TBA.
