The Witcher Prequel 'Blood Origin' is Coming to Netflix

The Witcher Prequel ‘Blood Origin’ is Coming to Netflix

The Witcher lore is expanding even more!

Fans of Netflix’s The Witcher will surely be delighted to hear that another spin-off has been confirmed. Titled The Witcher: Blood Origin, this six-part live-action series will follow the story of the first Witcher.

The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and Declan de Barra will act as executive producers. De Barra, known for working on scripts for TV shows such as The Originals and Iron Fist, will also helm this spin-off series.

Here’s the logline for the upcoming show:

“Set in an elven world 1200 years before the world of The Witcher, Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time – the origin of the very first 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.”

Andrzej Sapkowski, the creator of the books from which the franchise was based, will also be a creative consultant for the series. Details on the cast are yet to be revealed.


Besides Blood Origin and the second season of the main series, Netflix has also announced early this year that a spin-off anime film is in the works. The movie will be called The Witcher: Nightmare of The Wolf.
