Netflix releases action-packed teaser for ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’

As the witcher franchise and its fans reeling from the departure of Henry Cavill, who will be replaced by Liam Hemsworth as the protagonist Geralt of Rivia, Netflix now presents its next four-part prequel series, The Witcher: Origin of Blood in a new trailer. Set 1200 years before the events of the original series, Origin of blood tells the story of the creation of the first Witcher as well as the pivotal event of the “conjunction of the spheres” when the realms of elves, men and monsters merged into one.

The trailer begins with a scene showing the calm before the storm as a sword-elf named Scian, played by Michelle Yeoh, performs a special ritual before the violence. In the series, Scian, along with her sidekicks, embark on a mission to retrieve a stolen magic blade from her people, ultimately resulting in the prototype Witcher.

The new series is produced by Declan de Barra (iron fist) and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (the witcher). Alongside Yeoh, Lenny Henry (The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power), Sophia Brown (Capturing), Laurence O’Fuarain (In the Badlands), and others.

Take a look at the trailer above and expect The Witcher: Origin of Blood to arrive on Netflix on December 25. Looking ahead season 3 of the witcher should be out next summer.

In other news, Chris Rock will become the first artist to perform live on Netflix.
