Netflix will produce a prequel series set in the universe of The Witcher: it's official. It will be called The Witcher: Blood Origin, and will be set about 1,200 years before the time of Geralt of Rivia, and the events narrated in the main saga. The universe of The Witcher, as we know, is quite complicated: it started with the books that mainly tell the story of Geralt, then the video games of CD Projekt RED arrived, which are set after the books, always follow Geralt but are not canonical , then came the Netflix series (a huge success that has also boosted the sales of the third and so far last game, The Wild Hunt) which takes up what is told in the books.
in short, this Blood Origin, which will be a six-episode miniseries, will explore what the elven world was like before the arrival of humans and before the famous Conjunction of the Spheres, a sort of "magical cataclysm" due to which many magical creatures coming from another dimension they remained trapped in ours. It was precisely in this period that necessity gave birth to the first witchers, genetically enhanced humans precisely to fight and kill evil magical creatures. More precisely, Declan de Barra, principal creator, says that the miniseries will explore the elves' civilization before it collapsed and tell the now forgotten story of the first witcher.
A few months ago Netflix, thanks to the great success of the first season of the series with Henry Cavill in the role of Geralt, announced that he wanted to produce an animated film on Vesemir, his mentor and father figure. The good news is that Andrzej Sapkowski, author of the books and inventor of the universe, will also be involved in this new project in the role of creative consultant. He will also be supported by the talents of:
- Declan de Barra: executive producer.
- Lauren Schmidt Hissrich: executive producer. She is the showrunner of the main series with Cavill.
- Jason Brown and Sean Daniel of Hivemind: executive producers.
- Platome Films' Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko: executive producers.
