Netflix has just announced that The Witcher universe is expanding!


Blood Origin

The six episode prequel to the smash hit show will be called Blood Origin. The show be head up in part by Declan de Barra, and the series will take place 1200 years before the events of the current TV show timeline. In a statement, Barra said:

"As a lifelong fan of fantasy, I am beyond excited to tell the story The Witcher: Blood Origin, A question has been burning in my mind ever since I first read The Witcher books - What was the Elven world really like before the cataclysmic arrival of the humans? I've always been fascinated by the rise and fall of civilizations, how science, discovery and culture flourish right before that fall. How vast swathes of knowledge are lost forever in such a short time, often compounded by colonization and a rewriting of history. Leaving only fragments of a civilization's true story behind. The Witcher: Blood Origin will tell the tale of the Elven civilization before its fall, and most importantly reveal the forgotten history of the very first Witcher."

Following the success of the first season of The Witcher, we're excited to see what's to come in both the prequel series and the current show's second season on Netflix!
