The fantasy series “The Witcher” has given streaming giant Netflix its next big hit. So it’s no wonder that the provider is now trying to build on its success. With the prequel series “The Witcher: Blood Origin,” Netflix dives into the past of the medieval fantasy world. Just like the main series, “Blood Origin” is based on the “Witcher” book series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. In a total of four episodes, the show shows the creation of the first Witcher, 1,200 years before the events of “The Witcher”. You can stream all episodes of the mini-series on Netflix with a subscription from December 25, 2022. We’ll tell you here whether “The Witcher: Blood Origin” will continue in a possible season 2.

The Witcher: Blood Origin Season 2: Release Date
Shortly after Christmas, there is finally a breath of fresh air in the “Witcher” universe with the release of the mini-series “The Witcher: Blood Origin”. In addition to the background to the creation of the Witcher, the show will also delve into the long-gone world of the elves that once populated the fantasy world. Because before creatures like elves, monsters and humans inhabited the continent of “The Witcher” together, they were spread out in their own worlds. So the mini-series also shows the way to the Conjunction of the Spheres, which played a major role in Season 2 of the main series. The cast includes Hollywood star Michelle Yeoh as the elf Scian. Since “The Witcher: Blood Origin” was planned as a limited mini-series, it is currently unlikely that there will be a sequel in the form of a season 2, regardless of the possible success of the prequel.
What Netflix is planning for “The Witcher” universe
For those who are disappointed that “The Witcher: Blood Origin” will probably not continue, there is still good news. Netflix is continuing to expand “The Witcher” universe, so fans of the fantasy world can look forward to some news:
- “The Witcher”: For the main series it is released in the summer of 2023 with season 3. Season 4 has also already been ordered by Netflix, but with a controversial change: Liam Hemsworth will replace Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia.
- “The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf”: The animated series is a spin-off that takes a closer look at Geralt’s mentor Vesemir’s path to becoming the Witcher. The film has been available to stream on Netflix since August.
- In addition, Netflix is already planning the next animated film, which, similar to “The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf,” will illuminate an aspect of the Witcherverse. However, it is still unclear what exactly the film will be about and when it will be released.
- Another series is to complement “The Witcher” universe, namely an animated series. It is supposed to be more family-friendly than the FSK 16 main series. It’s not yet clear exactly what that means and how the series will tie in with the other TV and movie spin-offs.
Until the time comes for the new shows, you can first be brought back to the fantasy world of Geralt with “The Witcher: Blood Origin” on December 25, 2022.
