The Witcher: Blood Origin Gets A New Trailer Ahead Of December Release

No Comments

The world of The Witcher is expanding this Christmas on Netflix. The streaming service has released a new trailer for The Witcher: Blood Origin, which arrives in December. This is the latest spin-off in the Witcher universe, which now includes the main show and an anime. In this case, we’re heading way back in the timeline. This is a new adventure with Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All At Once) at its center. Check it out. 



Declan de Barra created the series alongside Netflix’s Witcher boss Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. Like the Henry Cavill series that kicked it all off, the show is adapted from the popular book series by Andrzej Sapkowski. While many people discovered this universe through the games, it did indeed all stem from the books. 


Here is the synopsis for The Witcher: Blood Origin. 


“Every story has a beginning. Witness the untold history of the Continent with The Witcher: Blood Origin, a new prequel series set in an elven world 1200 years before the events of The Witcher. Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time – exploring the creation of the first prototype 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 cast includes Lenny Henry, Mirren Mack, Nathaniel Curtis, Dylan Moran, Jacob Collins-Levy, Lizzie Annis, Huw Novelli, Francesca Mills, Amy Murray, Zach Wyatt, Aidan O’Callaghan, Karlina Grace-Paseda, Kim Adis, Sorcha Groundsell, Hebe Beardsall, Tomisin Ajani, Zachary Hart, Minnie Driver, Jordan Whitby, Mark Rowley and Daniel Boyarsky. This spin-off joins the previous animated film Nightmare of the Wolf, which debuted last year. 


Meanwhile, The Witcher season 3 has been filmed and is expected to arrive sometime in 2023. That will be Cavill’s last ride as Geralt though. He won’t appear in the spin-off and, even though Netflix has renewed the show for a fourth season, the Superman actor won’t be in it. It was recently confirmed that Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) will be taking over as Geralt beginning in season 4. Meanwhile, Cavill is set to return as Superman for a Man of Steel sequel after being away from the role for five years. 


The Witcher: Blood Origin hits Netflix on December 25.
