Netflix's Witcher Blood Origin Trailer Arrives
The new batch of episodes from the series adapted from the popular games and books landed with a teaser for the next spin-off.
Season 2 of The Witcher has arrived on Netflix, and a post-credits scene in the final episode drops a surprise first look at the upcoming prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin. Days later, Netflix released the scene for the world to see.
Set thousands of years before the adventures of Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer in the mainline Witcher show, the quick glimpse of Blood Origin we're given showcases a trio of elves played by Michelle Yeoh as the sword-elf Scian, Sophia Brown as Éile, an "elite warrior blessed with the voice of a goddess" and Laurence O'Fuarain as the warrior Fjall. The rest of the cast includes Mirren Mack as Merwyn, Lenny Henry as Balor, Jacob Collins as Eredin, Lizzie Annis as Zacaré, Huw Novelli as Callan "Brother Death," Francesca Mills as Meldof, Amy Murray as Fenrik, Nathaniel Curtis as Brían, Zach Wyatt as Syndril, and Dylan Moran as Uthrok One-Nut.
The teaser does not reveal a release date for the series, but Netflix has recently announced that the series is expected sometime in 2022. As the title suggests, Blood Origin will tell the story of "the origin of the very first Witcher and the events that lead to the pivotal 'conjunction of the spheres,' when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one."
Yeoh's role in the upcoming "interdimensional action film" Everything Everywhere All At Once was also showcased in a recently-released trailer. That film, released by A24, will be in theaters on March 25, 2022.
