An upcoming release of the Witcher Blood Origin is scheduled for this year. It’s encouraging to hear that the fantasy prequel series is still on schedule for release despite months of rumors about production problems surrounding its development.
Blood Origin’s debut was announced at Tudum 2022, Netflix‘s virtual worldwide fan event, with the release date set for the final week of December. The Witcher spin-off series also received its first official poster and an interesting new cast member announcement, so that wasn’t the only good news to come out of Tudum. You can read more about these specifics below if you missed them.
The Witcher Blood Origin Trailer
In December 2021, the first teaser for the Witcher: Blood Origin was made public. The first trailer for Blood Origin is packed with action and wide-angle images of various landscapes. It does a fascinating job of introducing new characters who will assume prominent roles in the series.
That includes the three main characters from Blood Origin—Scian played by Michelle Yeoh; Eile by Sophia Brown; and Fjall by Laurence O’Fuarain—who will be crucial to the storyline of the series and the destiny of the Continent. The song playing during the one-minute teaser also tells a lot about what will happen in the series.

The Witcher Cast
Joey Batey, who plays Joey, the Witcher actor, will introduce the framing mechanism for the prequel series as he begins to tell the tale of the Conjunction of the Spheres and is interrupted by an elf who claims to know what happened.
Three heroes will appear in the series: Scian (Michelle Yeoh), an elf on the hunt for a stolen sacred sword; Fjall (Laurence O’Fuarain), a warrior who joins Éile in her quest; and Éile (Sophia Brown), a warrior who leaves her clan and her position as the queen’s protector to travel the world as a singer.
The Witcher Blood Origin Based on Which Story?
The events of The Witcher: Blood Origin takes place during the world-changing Conjunction of the Spheres, 1200 years before The Witcher’s events. Expect a focus on the old Elven civilization, conflicts that arise when other species first meet, and other problems brought on by the Conjunction.
The main story of the program is currently unknown, although there have been many hints as to what to expect from the Witcher: Blood Origin. One of the benefits is that we’ll learn more about the history of the Witchers, people who were transformed into the ruthless monster hunters we know today through hard training and magical experiments. The most well-known Witchers are Geralt and Vesemir, but the story should provide us a hint as to who will be the original prototype, Witcher.
There isn’t a need for a second season if the Witcher Blood Origin‘s narrative finds a satisfying ending at the end of its initial run. Future Witcher content on Netflix includes the Witcher season 3, an additional animated film, and a family-friendly spin-off series.
