Netflix has released an official trailer for upcoming miniseries, “The Witcher: Blood Origin.”
The new trailer offers a closer look at the four-part prequel event series and revealing that fan-favourite character Jaskier (Joey Batey) from the flagship Netflix series makes an appearance.
The show’s official plot reads: “Set in an elven world 1,200 years before the world of The Witcher, Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time – the creation of the first prototype Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal conjunction of the spheres, when the world of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.”
“Blood Origin” pulls from the lore of the original books by author Andrzej Sapkowski to expand the universe ahead of “The Witcher” Season 3, which likely debuts sometime in 2023 and will mark Cavill’s final go-around with the franchise before passing the torch on to Liam Hemsworth in a major piece of recasting that was announced in October.
