Netflix is banking on the pre-pandemic fervor that The Witcher conjured in fans with new news confirming the coming of a new spin-off series. And I am not taking about the animation spin-off, but a live-action one. The name of this series is taking things to the bloody root – The Witcher: Blood Origin.

As one may be able to decipher from the name, this is somewhat an origins story. But it will not be about Geralt of Rivia. This origins story is one focused on the beginnings of the Witcher title itself and the first of its kind. Which is pretty much a millennia and two centuries preceding the legend of Geralt of Rivia.

The Witcher: Blood Origin is slated to be a 6-part live-action series. The Witcher spin-off series has Declan de Barra and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. as Showrunner and Executive Producer respectively.

Here is what de Barra had to say behind the ideas and inspiration for The Witcher: Blood Origin:

I’ve always been fascinated by the rise and fall of civilisations; how science, discovery, and culture flourish right before that fall. How vast swathes of knowledge are lost forever in such a short time, often compounded by colonisation and a rewriting of history, leaving only fragments of a civilisation’s true story behind. The Witcher: Blood Origin will tell the tale of the Elven civilisation before it fell, and most importantly reveal the forgotten history of the very first Witcher.
