Keep reading to find out if The Witcher: Blood Origin teaser revealed the release date of the prequel.
The teaser and release date of The Witcher: Blood Origin
The official Twitter handle of The Witcher tweeted the one-minute-long teaser. The teaser showcases an uncanny contrast between the peaceful landscapes and the blood-thirsty fights. Of course, fans expressed their contrasting views too. Some loved the teaser just as much as “The Witcher” series, while some compared it to “Eternals”. One thing that united the fans and haters alike was the release date.
Every story has a beginning.

Netflix has kept the date under wraps, and viewers weren’t happy with the streamer’s decision. All we know for now is that the series may premiere in 2022.
First look at The Witcher: Blood Origin
Netflix Geeked pulled a smart move on us by releasing a sneak peek tweet. The tweet contained the same scenes which fans saw in the teaser. Character posters would have helped the fans, as they aid audiences in understanding the characters. However, fans should wait as Netflix might have planned to release other posters at a later time.
The cast and synopsis of the prequel series
Although The Witcher and the prequel series are related, fans shouldn’t expect the same cast. It is highly unlikely that any of the present sorcerers, elves, or witchers might show up as the prequel is set years before The Witcher. The following people will be in the cast:
- Sophia Brown
- Laurence O’Fuarain
- Michelle Yeoh
- Lenny Henry
- Mirren Mack
- Nathaniel Curtis
- Dylan Moran
- Jacob Collins-Levy
- Lizzie Annis
- Huw Novelli
- Francesca Mills
- Amy Murray
- Zach Wyatt
If you have any doubts regarding the story of the series, then here’s the official synopsis by Netflix:
“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.”
Will the prequel series be better or worse than “The Witcher”? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
