After the huge success of its first season, Netflix was expected to announce the renewal of The Witcher. However, it seems that the rights to Sapkowski’s novels could give even more, in addition to the already confirmed anime movie, with rumors of a possible completely new series, The Witcher: Blood Origin.
Again marking a distance with the games, this time with we find a six-part spin-off which will take place approximately 1,200 years before the adventures of Geralt de Rivia.
So, as they advance from the official account of upcoming Netflix releases, this prequel will focus on delving into the universe of the novels itself, returning to a point where «the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged into one, and the first Warlock was born«.
1200 years before Geralt of Rivia, the worlds of monsters, men and elves merged into one, and the first Witcher came to be.

Management will run again hand in hand Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, currently in charge of the original Netflix series, which will be joined by other names known as Declan de Barra, who has already written an episode for The Witcher, and better known for his work in Marvel’s Iron Fist.
Unfortunately at the moment Netflix has not disclosed any additional information. such as the scheduled release date or the cast of actors we can expect to see in The Witcher: Blood Origin.
And it is that considering that the second season is still in process, and the enormous number of delays that the current situation of health crisis is supplying around the world, the most likely is that we will not have more details until well into 2021, displacing its premiere even a year further.
