At CCXP in Brazil, the first official trailer for the upcoming highly anticipated Netflix series The Witcher: Blood Origin was shown. The trailer looks at what fans may anticipate from the next series.
The series will tell the narrative of seven unrelated people who band together to bring down a powerful organization and will be led by Michelle Yeoh. In the teaser, we are introduced to six of the seven companions, and we get a decent peek at how ruthless the empire can be.
Netflix has announced that The Witcher: Blood Origin will be available to stream on their platform on December 25, 2022.

The Witcher: Blood Origin Trailer
The main characters of The Witcher: Blood Origin will be portrayed by three actors. Vikings alum Laurence O’Fuarain will play Fjall, a character who hails from a clan of warriors sworn to protect a King; Michelle Yeoh (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) will play Scan, the last member of the nomadic tribe of sword-elves; and Sophia Brown.
The events of the limited series, which will consist of six episodes, will take place in an elf world 1,200 years before those of the main series. The synopsis states, “It tells the story lost to time – the development of the prototype Witcher,” which is exactly what the movie does. And the events that led up to the crucial ‘conjunction of the spheres,’ when the worlds of monsters, mankind, and elves all blended to become one.
Minnie Driver, Lenny Henry, Mirren Mack, Nathaniel Curtis, Dylan Moran, Jacob Collins-Levy, Huw Novelli, Francesca Mills, Zach Wyatt, Lizzie Annis, and Amy Murray are going to be appearing in the film as well. They will be joining the primary stars.
Declan de Barra, who is also serving as the showrunner, will be responsible for the executive producer of The Witcher: Blood Origin. Sarah O’Gorman and Vicky Jewson are going to helm this project as directors.
The showrunner for The Witcher, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, Hivemind’s Jason Brown and Sean Daniel, and Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko of Platige Films serve as executive producers for this project. Andrzej Sapkowski, a well-known Polish author, has agreed to work on the series as a creative consultant.
