As you all know, we have talked about earlier that a new prequel series for The Witcher is on its way in our article. But we didn’t have much to share back then. And now, gladly we do! There is news coming about The Blood Origin and its cast! A character and its player are finally determined! So who is The Witcher Series Prequel’s Blood Origin newcomer?
The limited series, which will consist of six episodes, will be set in a world we are familiar with from CD Projekt’s games and the main series starring Henry Cavill. Blood Origin will take place in an elven world 1200 years ago from the world of The Witcher and will be about the origins of the first Witcher and the events that led to the conjunction of the spheres.
A book from the first ‘The Witcher’ game
We also know that The Conjunction of the Spheres is a book set in the first Witcher game. Although there were no many explanations about Blood Origin, it has been possible for us to make predictions based on this book. It is true that there are still many more uncertainties besides. At least we understand the horrifying events are going to be told that happened with monsters from an alternative dimension and more from clues.
When is the ‘Blood Origin’ release date on Netflix?
The shootings are supposed to be between May and December but there was still no information given about the release date of Blood Origin and the characters it contains. Till now! With the tweet of the NX, we finally got a little more enlightened!
