Soundtracked by a moody cover of Ellie Goulding‘s ‘Burn’, the teaser shows the trio fighting one another before teaming up to fight an ambush by soldiers.
The Witcher: Blood Origin will tell tales from the medieval world of the Continent before the ‘Conjunction of the Spheres’, the mysterious pivotal event in the original Witcher books that caused humans, elves and monsters to reside in the same world.
Declan de Barra, a writer and producer on The Witcher, is showrunner for Blood Origin. He
previously told Entertainment Weekly that the show will introduce a “pre-colonised world” of elves.
Lauren S. Hissrich, The Witcher executive producer, said, “We have obviously heard in The Witcher show that humans brought civilisation to the elves. They’re the ones who showed them what it was like to be civilised. And in fact, what we’re seeing in Blood Origin is that’s exactly opposite of the truth. The world was much more of a Golden Age than what we see in The Witcher years later.”
The six-episode Blood Origin prequel is set to premiere in 2022, although no release date has been set. Season two of The Witcher is now streaming on Netflix.
