The first season of “The Witcher” was a huge hit for Netflix. So big that the streaming provider will apparently set up a whole “The Witcher” universe:

As Netflix has now announced, work on “The Witcher: Blood Origin” has begun.

As Netflix has now announced, work on “The Witcher: Blood Origin” has begun.

This is a self-contained live-action series with six episodes in which the story of the elves and the first witcher ever is to be told.

“Blood Origin” takes place around 1,200 years before the plot of “The Witcher” and is supposed to tell how the decline of the elven civilization took place and what happened before the so-called spherical conjunction on the nameless world on which the “The Witcher” – Play stories.

What is the conjunction of spheres?

The spherical conjunction is a kind of cataclystical event in which several different parallel worlds collided and merged into one world – the world as we know it from the narrative presence of “The Witcher”.

Before the elves lived alone on their world, after that they had to share their habitat not only with humans and other intelligent races such as dwarves or halflings, but also with all kinds of monsters and dangerous creatures.

Allegedly, people are said to have acquired magical abilities through the conjunction of spheres. But since most people were defenseless against the monsters, this is how the first witchers were created.

“The Witcher” makers on board

Responsible for “Blood Origin” are Declan de Barra (as showrunner and producer) and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (as producer). Both are also involved in the “The Witcher” main series, as writers and showrunners, respectively. And with Andrzej Sapkowski, the author of “The Witcher” novels is also on board, who will work as a creative consultant for “Blood Origin”.

There is no start date for “The Witcher: Blood Origin” yet, but it will probably not be until after the premiere of the second season “The Witcher” to fill the gap up to the third season. Publication at the end of 2021 or 2022 would therefore be possible.

A start date for “The Witcher: Blood Origin” does not yet exist

In addition to “Blood Origin”, the animated cmovie “The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf” has also been announced. This is also a prehistory.
