The Witcher: Blood Origin trailer reveals an untold chapter

On December 17, Netflix released The Witcher season 2 in its entirety, as well as a surprise for fans who stuck it out to the end by slipping in the first teaser for the upcoming prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin as a post-credits sequence in the final episode. But don’t expect to see Geralt of Rivera, played by Henry Cavill, in this miniseries. Blood Origin takes place 1,200 years before the events of The Witcher, and it depicts a world filled with even more magic and wonder for fans.

Scian, played by Michelle Yeoh, is the focus of the new trailer. Scian is an elf, even if her ears aren’t a dead giveaway. She is the last survivor of a tribe of sword-elves who are on a sacred journey to recover a stolen blade of tremendous significance.

Scian’s story has been lost to time until now, but her adventure will forever impact the Continent. The demise of an elf civilization and the birth of the first Witcher will be chronicled in this miniseries. It also claims to expose the circumstances that led to the merging of the worlds of men, monsters, and elves.

Sophia Brown, who took over the part of Éile from April Turner-Smith soon before production began, also stars in Blood Origin. Éile has the uncommon distinction of being a former member of the Queen’s Guard who left her past life to pursue a new career as a wandering musician. However, Éile appears to be the most likely character to become the first Witcher, based on her position in the cast list. Laurence O’Fuarain’s Fjall, a warrior who formerly vowed to defend his monarch, is another likely candidate.

The Witcher: Blood Origin was created by Declan De Barra and based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher novels. It stars Mirren Mack as Merwyn, Nathaniel Curtis as Bran, Dylan Moran as Uthrok One-Nut, Jacob Collins-Levy as Eredin, Lizzie Annis as Zacaré, Huw Novelli as Callan “Brother Death,” Francesca Mills as Meldof, Amy Murray as Fenrik, Netflix will release the six-episode miniseries in 2022.
