“Every story has a beginning. Witness the untold history of the Continent with The Witcher: Blood Origin, a new prequel series set in an elven world 1200 years before the events of The Witcher.
Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time — exploring the creation of the first prototype 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.”
Declan De Barra serves as the executive producer of the live-action spinoff along with Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, Sean Daniel, Jason Brown, Tomasz Bagiński, Jarosław Sawko, and Matt O’Toole.
The teaser was unveiled as a part of the post-credits scene in The Witcher season 2 which debuted on the streamer on December 17.
Nightmare of the Wolf, an anime prequel to the fantasy series, The Witcher is also available on Netflix.
The footage for Blood Origin explores the ancient elven world introducing the main trio, Éile, Fjall and Scian. Éile, a warrior who left her clan to pursue her dream as a wandering singer. Scian, a sword elf is in search of a powerful stolen sword. The three unite and wield their swords to prepare for an imminent blood bath.
