Netflix has announced a brand new prequel series set in the same world as Henry Cavill’s The Witcher. This exciting news was announced today via the Netflix NX Twitter account. They also gave a slight insight as to what we can expect from this new show.
Interestingly, The Witcher: Blood Origin will be set 1,200 years before Geralt of Rivia became a Monster hunter. Fans will be taken back to the creation of the very first Witcher. We will finally be able to learn more about the process behind making a Witcher- how they are trained, why they are so strong, and, more importantly, who the first Witcher was.
