The Witcher: Blood Origin launch date has finally been announced. Netflix also revealed when The Witcher season 3 awaits us and announced Minnie Driver for a mysterious role.
- ” The Witcher ” will get a prequel with “Blood Origin” in December 2022.
- In addition to the start date and the scope of the series, Netflix also revealed when we can expect season 3.
- In addition, Minnie Driver will play a crucial, but still secret, role in both series.
Not only does a lot of time pass between the seasons of the Netflix hits “The Witcher”, the spin-off ” The Witcher: Blood Origin ” was also a long time coming. The 6-part miniseries was first announced in summer 2020, but only now do we know when “Blood Origin” will be released on Netflix.
On December 25, 2022, i.e. on Christmas Day, the new “Witcher” series will be released, which, however, does not require Henry Cavill and plays 1200 years before the main series. Minnie Driver joins the cast to be the narrator. So she shouldn’t be seen herself, but that changes in “The Witcher” season 3, because Driver takes on a new and not yet precisely known role that is important in both series.
For previously unknown reasons, the scope of “Blood Origin” was also reduced, the 6 planned episodes have now become 4 episodes. There was also news about “The Witcher” Season 3 during the Tudum fan event. The new season will be released on Netflix in summer 2023.
While “Blood Origin” as a mini-series should already be complete after one season, a 4th season of “The Witcher” is already considered certain, after all, the fantasy series with Henry Cavill is one of the streaming service’s greatest successes. Next, Cavill could be seen in a brief cameo opposite Dwayne Johnson on Black Adam .
