The witcher season 2 wasn’t just a banger (literally and figuratively), but also contained a treat for those who got excited throughout the season finale: a trailer for The Witcher: Origin of Blood. This is a prequel series, so we won’t be seeing Geralt or Dandelion or Yennifer or Ciri. Heck, this series takes place so far in the past that there isn’t even a swaggering Vesemir in sight. We do see a pre-Witcher world, however, which appears to be exclusively populated by elves, and this limited six-part series will lead to the creation of novelist Andrzej Sapkowski’s first witcher in the world.
Netflix has released a list of characters, which reveals that the prequel will have a sense of humor in its hands, much like the OG series. “Uthrok One-Nut”, which will be performed by Dylan Moran. We don’t know him in this trailer, but I guess the ghost of Sons of anarchy‘s Half Sack Eps would like a word. Additionally, the cast includes Sophia Brown (Ãile), Jacob Collins Levy (Eredin), Michelle Yeoh (ScÃan), Laurence O’Fuarain (Fjall), Mirren Mack (Merwyn), Lenny Henry (Balor), Lizzie Annis (ZacarÃ©) , Huw Novelli (Callan “Brother Death”), and more. From the serial connection line:
Set in an Elven world 1200 years before the world of The Witcher: Origin of Blood will tell a story lost in time – the creation of the first prototype of Witcher and the events which led to the pivot of the “conjunction of the spheres”, when the worlds of monsters, men and elves merged into one .
This story takes place 1,200 years before we first met Grumpy Geralt of Rivia. Press documents indicate that the “conjunction of the spheres” is the moment when “the worlds of monsters, men and elves have merged into one.” Seems like there are so many crazy monsters that Elves or Men banded together to create these mutant monster slaying Witchers. If this is how it turns out, it certainly adds some interesting nuances to the Elven animosity that we’ll see later in the flagship series.
To look for The Witcher: Origin of Blood will start in 2022.
