The Witcher: Geralt stars in ‘Monster Mash’ trailer
The Witcher season one came out at the end of 2019 and had a legion of loyal fans from the very start who had played the video game series from the same franchise. Even before series two was announced, Netflix disclosed there would be a prequel season of the fantasy series. Here’s everything you need to know about The Witcher Blood Origin.
When will The Witcher Blood Origin be out?
A release date hasn’t been revealed by Netflix for The Witcher Blood Origin, at the time of writing.
However, there is a prediction circling that the six new episodes could be out sometime in late spring to early summer 2022.
This estimate bears in mind that filming is expected to begin sometime between May and December this year.
Following this, there will be several months of post-production work which lasted six months for the first series of The Witcher.
Blood Origin is two episodes shorter than The Witcher season one and the upcoming series two so shouldn’t take as long to complete.
There is no definite release date but it predicted Blood Origin may be out in mid-2022.

Who is in the cast of The Witcher Blood Origin?
Few details have been released regarding the cast of Blood Origin so far.
However, today, Monday, January 25, it was announced actress Jodie Turner-Smith would be starring in the prequel as a character called Éile.
Her character description reads: “[Éile is] an elite warrior blessed with the voice of a goddess, who has left her clan and position as Queen’s guardian to follow her heart as a nomadic musician.
“A grand reckoning on the continent forces her to return to the way of the blade in her quest for vengeance and redemption.”
Last year, there were casting calls for other characters including a Princess Merwyn and the male lead Fjall.
Entertainment site Illuminerdi said: “While about the same age as Eile, he [Fjall] is from an opposing clan – implying that there may be a clash for dominance.
“Not only is he physically strong, but is described as raw, gritty and visceral.
“Certainly a contrast to the graceful strength that one might expect from Eile.”
Director Sophie Holland also promoted on Twitter how they were looking for supporting actors for the series.
Holland used code names to define each one with Character G labelled as a “brilliantly sharp-minded (female) assassin”, Character Z a “mystical and earthly conduit with cerebral palsy” and Fabbri, a “tall, muscular druid who is also deaf”.
Is there a trailer for The Witcher Blood Origin?
So far, no trailer has been released for The Witcher Blood Origin.
The cast and crew of the fantasy series haven’t even started filming yet for the new episodes.
The prequel is expected to come out sometime in 2022 and before the show is advertised, Netflix is going to be promoting The Witcher season two which comes out in August this year.

What will be the plot of The Witcher Blood Origin?
The Witcher Blood Origin will be set in an elven world 1,200 years before the events of The Witcher.
The six-part series will tell the story of the Conjunction of the Spheres as well as the creation of the first witcher.
Little is known about the Conjunction of the Spheres as it is only briefly mentioned in the book series by Andrzej Sapkowski which the show and video games are based on.
But the event was of great importance as it trapped “unnatural” creatures in this dimension including graveirs, ghouls and vampires.
Rifts were created by the collision of different realms and so the world became filled with hundreds of creatures of various sizes, shapes and abilities.
Despite few details being given in the books, The Witcher Blood Origin will attempt to fill in these blanks for fans.
The series will also see the creation of the first witcher, who it was and how they came to take on the responsibilities.
The Witcher is available to watch on Netflix.
