Netflix has revealed a new teaser trailer for the Witcher prequel series, ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin,’ which also confirms the reduced count of episodes for the limited series. ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ will release on December 25 on Netflix, worldwide.
The new teaser confirms that ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ will have only four episodes, which is two shorter than the original announcement of a six-episode limited series.
The trailer mainly focuses on Michelle Yeoh’s Scían, who is the very last of her nomadic tribe of sword elves. No one comes close to her knife artistry, and no one bears as much loss in their heart. When she gets the opportunity to retrieve a stolen sacred sword, taken from her fallen tribe by nefarious means, she embarks on a dangerous quest that will determine the fate of the Continent.
‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ will be narrated by Oscar nominee Minnie Driver, who is playing Seanchai, a shapeshifting collector of old lore with the ability to travel between time and worlds. In other words, she’s a tour guide of sorts for audiences.
The limited series stars Sophia Brown as Éile, Michelle Yeoh as Scian, and Laurence O'Fuarain as Fjall. The cast of the series also includes Francesca Mills as Meldof, and Jon Prophet as The Severed, Dylan Moran as Uthrok One-Nut. Zach Wyatt portrays Syndril, Nathaniel Curtis as Brían, and Amy Murray portrays Fenrik. Huw Novelli in the role of Brother Death, Jacob Collins as Eredin, Aidan O'Callaghan as Kareg, Lizzie Annis as Zacaré, and Lenny Henry as Balor. Mirren Mack portrays Merwyn
Set in an Elven world 1200 years before the world of "The Witcher," “The Witcher: Blood Origin” will trace the origins of the very first Witcher of the Elven civilization before its fall, as well as the events that led to the pivotal “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.
Declan de Barra is the showrunner and executive producer, and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich serves as executive producer on the 6-episode limited series. Andrzej Sapkowski will act as the series' creative consultant. Hivemind's Jason Brown and Sean Daniel are the executive producers alongside Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko from Platige Film.
