Netflix recently announced that it is working on a new miniseries from The Witcher universe to be titled The Witcher: Blood Origin. This limited story will serve as a prequel to the events experienced in the original successful show on the platform and will begin production soon.
According to Netflix, The Witcher: Blood Origin will be divided into six parts and will be a story set in an elven world, 1200 years before the known world in The Witcher. Blood Origin will tell a story lost in time that will reveal the origin of the first Witcher and the events that lead to the conjunction of the spheres, all at a time when the worlds of monsters, men and elves merge to become one.
Members of the production team include Declan de Barra as executive producer and showrunner, as well as Lauren Schmidt Hissrich also in executive production, accompanied by Jason Brown and Sean Daniel from Hivemind, and Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko from Platige Films. On the other hand, Andrzej Sapkowski will serve as creative consultant on the series.
Regarding the development of this story, showrunner Declan De Barra advanced the following:
“As a lifelong fan of fantasy I am beyond excited to tell the story The Witcher: Blood Origin. One question stuck in my mind from the first time I read The Witcher books: What was the Elvish world really like before the cataclysmic arrival of humans?
The Witcher: Blood Origin will tell the story of the Elven civilization before its fall and, most importantly, reveal the forgotten story of the first Witcher.
The Witcher: Blood Origin will be filming in the UK soon.

My favorite directors are Wim Wenders and Yorgos Lanthimos, but I’m easily surprised by the series.
