The Witcher: Blood Origin will be released on Netflix on December 25, 2022
On December 25, 2022, The Witcher: Blood Origin will become available for streaming on Netflix. The fantasy spin-off series, which was apparently hampered by development troubles in recent months, will eventually appear on Netflix on Christmas Day, as was announced during Tudum 2022. The announcement of the launch date comes more than a year after the first trailer for The Witcher: Blood Origin was made available. That teaser was unexpectedly made available as a stinger at the end of The Witcher 2’s most recent episode. In addition, the actress Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting, The Deep) has been added to the cast in what is currently an unknown capacity.
Blood Origin is a prequel to The Witcher and Geralt of Rivia that takes place 1200 years before the events of The Witcher and tells the narrative of the very first Witcher on the Continent. It will also cover the events that took place in the time leading up to and during the Conjunction of the Spheres, which was a catastrophic event that caused numerous realms to crash into one another, resulting in diverse races and creatures living on the same plane of existence.
Based on the events that take place in The Witcher spin-off series, Sophia Brown (Giri/Haji) will play the role of Éile in Blood Origin. Éile is a former warrior who has dedicated her life to music, but her past comes back to haunt her. The show will feature Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All at Once, Shang-Chi), as well as Laurence O’Fuarain (Rebellion, Game of Thrones), in significant supporting roles. Along with a great number of other notable people, Lenny Henry (The Rings of Power) and Dylan Moran (Black Books) will make appearances throughout.
It was originally anticipated that The Witcher: Blood Origin would debut around the middle of 2022 as a limited series consisting of six episodes. A Witcher fansite called Redanian Intelligence has since said that the show will only have four episodes and that it will be narrated by the fan-favorite character Jaskier (played by Joey Batey) to help connect it to the main Witcher series on Netflix.
During its presentation at Tudum 2022, the streaming giant did not confirm any of the aforementioned particulars. In the following weeks leading up to the release of Blood Origin in December, we are hoping to learn more about the game. Keep your eyes peeled on Westnews for additional information regarding the Witcher franchise on Netflix; we will provide it to you as soon as we receive it. In the meantime, stay tuned.
