The world of The Witcher was recently rocked by the news that Henry Cavill is retiring as Geralt, with Liam Hemsworth taking his place. But there’s still one more season of Cavill battling beasts to look forward to. This also includes Blood Origin, a limited series Witcher prequel starring Michelle Yeoh (among others).
The Witcher: Blood Origin is Set in an elven world 1200 years before The Witcher’s world. It will tell a lost story – the creation of the first prototype Witcher. The series will also focus on the Conjunction of Spheres that united the realms of monsters, elves, and humans.
