Netflix Reveals The Witcher: Blood Origin, a Witcher Spin-Off Series

Geralt of Rivia was not the first Witcher, and Netflix feels that there is a story to be told about there. Netflix has confirmed that a new series called “The Witcher: Blood Origin” is in the works, and it will reveal how “the first Witcher came to be.”

This series will be a 6-part live-action spin-off of Netflix’s incredibly successful The Witcher series, taking place 1200 years before Geralt of Rivia rose to prominence, showcasing a world of men, elves and monsters that’s very different to what we know. 

The Witcher: Blood Origin will be produced by Declan de Barra and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, both of which worked on Netflix’s existing The Witcher series. 

This news comes after reports that filming for The Witcher Season 2 will take a lot longer than expected, pushing filming into 2021. Now, it seems likely that The Witcher Season 2’s filming won’t end until February 2021. 

Netflix is already known to be making other side content for The Witcher franchise, including an animated film called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. The show will be created by Studio Mir, the production house behind Legend of Korra. Netflix has also confirmed that The Witcher’s showrunner  Lauren S. Hissrich will also be involved in the film’s production.
