Fans of Netflix's The Witcher will be happy to hear there's going to be even more fantasy epic-ness coming your way as the streaming giant has just announced that a prequel is in development.
The new project, titled The Witcher: Blood Origin, will be set 1,200 years before The Witcher and will form a six-episode miniseries.
The official Netflix synopsis reads: "Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time - 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."
Lauren Schmidt, who acted as executive producer on season of The Witcher, will return in the same role. Speaking about the new project, she said: "I am so thrilled to collaborate with Declan and the Netflix team on The Witcher: Blood Origin. It’s an exciting challenge to explore and expand The Witcher universe created by Andrzej Sapkowski, and we can’t wait to introduce fans to new characters and an original story that will enrich our magical, mythical world even more."
Declan de Barra will act as executive producer and The Witcher writer Andrzej will serve as creative consultant on the series.
Meanwhile, Netflix recently announced production will resume on The Witcher season two in August after it was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"I’m dusting off my lute and quill, I have some news, some mead to spill: After all the months we’ve been apart, It’s time for production to restart," the show's official Twitter account shared. "The Witcher and his bard–who’s flawless, Will reunite on set 17 August."
So much good TV news.
