It is being heard that the Witcher Prequel Blood Origin is going to be released in October 2022, although not officially confirmed.
The Witcher Series on Netflix is based on novels and short stories written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. This Polish-American fictional series is created by Lauren S. Hissrich. The storyline of the series is set on a fictional medieval landmass called ‘Continent.’ It entails the adventures of the main three characters, a Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, the most powerful mage, Yennefer of Vengerberg, and a child with Elder Blood, Princess Cirilla of Cintra, Ciri.
Netflix premiered this show in December 2019 with eight episodes to provide enough adventures for the audience. The Second Season of The Witcher Series came out in December 2021, which was more action-oriented with more horrifying monsters and terrifying villains. The fans are waiting for the next one, which is already in the filming phase.
While there is no release date for Witcher Season 3, everyone is hoping the Witcher prequel Blood Origin to be released before, which will take the audience into the depths of The Witcher World. The Witcher Blood Origin is an upcoming fictional miniseries, a prequel to The Witcher series on Netflix.
The Witcher Blood Origin is also based on the short stories of the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The storyline will be set 1200 years before the events of Netflix’s Witcher Series. The Blood Origin will focus on the origin of a Witcher, as all the Witcher books revolve around the ‘Witcher’ adventures. It will also cover the events of ‘Conjunction of Spheres,’ which was mentioned once or twice in The Witcher Series.
After many months of waiting, the fans are fixated on the question, ‘when does the witcher blood origin come out?’ The casting of the prequel includes Michelle Yeoh, Laurence O’Fuarain, and Sophia Brown, who underwent two weeks of reshoots recently. When the word ‘reshoot’ is heard, one searches for the release date, but nothing has been officially announced yet.
Witcher Prequel Blood Origin: Potential Release Date
When the prequel was given the green light, we thought its release date would probably be May till August 2022, but as time went on, that was not the case. The Witcher Blood Origin release date would be around October 2022, according to our reliable reader who found an inside source.
We are not sure if the information will come true, but if it doesn’t, the traditional release month of the Witcher Series was always December, for which we can hope for the prequel to be released.
Witcher Prequel Blood Origin: Possibly Fewer Episodes Than Intended
According to our reliable source, The Witcher Blood Origin, a limited series, is doing to release only four episodes instead of six because of some major edits. We can’t possibly think of a reason why the prequel decides to cut down two episodes, but there would be huge chunks of material cut down to go forward with this. However, nothing can be said until the release of The Witcher Blood Origin.
Witcher Prequel Blood Origin: More Jaskier
In the last year, 2021, we found out that Jaskier, the bard, is going to appear in The Witcher Blood Origin. The appearance could be portraying his typical role of telling stories through songs that would happen in the prequel too. While telling the stories, he would then be interrupted by an Elf who would tell that the story he is telling isn’t accurate, after which the actual story begins.
We are assuming that Jaskier, the bard, is going to make an appearance in the prologue, and we will see him again at the end, similarly to The Hobbit trilogy.
Moreover, one of the things that happened during the reshoots was adding some more Jaskier’s scenes and making a link between the main and the prequel series. However, logically thinking, Jaskier’s scenes would become interludes between episodes and scenes.
Whatever the case, the Witcher prequel Blood Origin would include the depths of the Witcher world; explaining the origin of a Witcher is going to make the audience hyped. We will update the website with the official information as soon as it is announced. Stay tuned for more exciting updates about the Witcher World.
