When Will “The Witcher: Blood Origin” Releases on Netflix?
The production has just wrapped on the six-episode series, and seeing the current timeline, we can expect The Witcher: Blood Origin to release in Summer 2022 on Netflix. The post-production is likely to take lesser time than the first two seasons of The Witcher as it is only six episodes.
Vicky Jewson and Sarah O'Gorman have directed three episodes of the six-episode limited series, respectively. You can watch The Witcher: Blood Origin Set Tour video at the bottom of this article.
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 form one.
Declan de Barra is serving as 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 Films.
