The Witcher: Blood Origin

Netflix brings The Witcher: Blood Origin, a six-episode prequel

The series will be set 1,200 years before Geralt’s adventures

The adaptation of The Witcher on Netflix has already pocketed a second season, an animated film, and now we will have a new feed on the list as well. The Witcher: Blood Origin is a live-action prequel series set more than a thousand years before Geralt began roaming the Continent.

According to a press release, the series “The Witcher: Blood Origin” will consist of six episodes, while its shooting will take place in the UK.

“Set in the world of supernatural creatures known as Elve, 1200 years before our world, the series entitled ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ will tell the story of the origin of the protagonist known as The Witcher, and the events he calls in the connection of spheres when the worlds of monsters, humans and mystical creatures, merge into one place.”

The announcement says: “1200 years ago Geralt of Rivia, the world of monsters, humans, and elves merged into one and thus the first Witcher was created.” The series will be directed by Declan de Barra and Lauren Hissrich.

The paraphrase of the world merging into one is a reference to the Conjunction of the Spheres, the event that held various races and various supernatural creatures all in one dimension. In games and books, the Conjunction of the Spheres occurred 1,500 years ago.

There are many gaps in what we know about the origins of the witchers, which will likely give the screenwriting team more freedom to incorporate their ideas into the series. Beyond that, we do not know many other things about the series and we are still waiting for a release date.

The Witcher” is based on a series of books by Andrzej Sapkowski, which were originally adapted into the famous video game of the same title. In the first series, the British actor, Henry Cavill, played the main role, while before debuting for the general public, the series was approved for the realization of the second season.

The Witcher also broke the Netflix record for the largest number of viewers in its first season. The popular digital platform had announced that 76 million subscribers have watched this series, within the first four days of its debut, marking the largest opening of a series in the history of Netflix.

The Witcher Comics series

The Witcher will receive a new Comics series

Season 2 of The Witcher has just begun. News like Kim Bodnia’s selection to play Vesemir continues to be rumored, proving how popular the Netflix series has made The Witcher’s productions in general. However The Witcher has seen other successes before coming to a streaming service, through games by CD Projekt Red and comic books by Dark Horse Comics.

Now Dark Horse will bring another series of The Witcher comics called: The Witcher: Fading Memories. They will be published in four parts, starting June 17, 2020. In Fading Memories, Geralt of Rivia will investigate a series of disappearances that have taken place in the town of Towity from monster threats.

Fading Memories is being written by Polish screenwriter Bartosz Sztybor, who is well known in the world of Comics and is being drawn by Iranian illustrator Amad Mir.

It makes a lot of sense that Dark Horse is bringing in more material related to The Witcher at the moment, most of all when considering how well the Netflix adaptation of the series has performed. The latter has dominated the internet for months, as the first season came out in December 2019. Much of this popularity has to be acknowledged thanks to the fantastic song “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher.”

With a date currently awaited for the launch of Season 2 on Netflix, the Dark Horse comics, due out in the summer, will comfort the fans a little.

The Witcher

Revealed how many seasons The Witcher may have on Netflix

The Witcher is available exclusively on Netflix.

Since launching in December 2019, Netflix’s The Witcher has received widespread praise among fans of The Witcher franchise. After growing in popularity, series director Lauren S. Hissrich has begun discussing the future of the series and how many seasons the show will have.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

The Witcher is a Netflix Original series, which premiered on December 20, 2019 and was received with a lot of positive feedback from fans and critics alike. Due to its resemblance to video game adaptations, the series brought a lot of immediate attention from the gaming community. The first season aired with only eight episodes, though, since the release of the series, fans have died to know what will happen next in the coming seasons.

When asked how long the series might last, Lauren Hissrich touched on a number of factors that will dictate the longevity of the series. This includes characters introduced in Season 1, the amount of content spread in the original series of novels, and also characters not yet included, such as Vesemir.

As for the actual number of seasons the show will have, Hissrich was rather vague. Again, given the amount of content the Witcher has to offer, it’s hard to predict how long the series will last. Hissrich once mentioned that the series would last 7 seasons, but she also said that she and other writers had enough content to last 20 seasons.

The series has already been renewed for a second season, but because of when everything will be ready, it’s hard to predict the show’s continued longevity. Given the positive feedback from fans, there is certainly a demand for it. The level of positivity the series has received from game fans is quite surprising given the number of changes made, such as the change of Dandelion‘s name.

Although, not all of the changes made to the Netflix series have been for the better. The changes that Hissrich and other writers made to fan favorite character Triss Merigold were not particularly well received by the audience. Having said all that, with one season already released and another season in development, there is plenty of room for Hissrich to expand on what has already been created.
