Synopsis: The Witcher, Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time – the creation of the first prototype 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.

No word just yet on when you can expect The Witcher: Blood Origin to hit Netflix. But we do know that season two of The Witcher is hitting the streaming platform in the final months of 2021. The Witcher is based on the book series of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski.
