The Witcher Blood Origin has a release date! It’s been revealed at Netflix’s streamer fan event, Tudum, that the upcoming prequel series would be released on the platform on December, 25th. They also revealed that The Witcher Season 3 will be released in the summer of 2023.
This was actually something that we expected. The previous seasons of the main show were released in December, and it seems like Blood Origin will be taking that particular release date. The main show will be released a few months later in the summer of 2023, which is a new release date for the main series. However, I think this is a good thing because it means that we’ve got more to look forward to from this particular universe.
The Witcher Blood Origin has a release date
Henry Cavill will be back as Geralt Of Rivia in the main Witcher series. However, he won’t be playing the lead in this new prequel series. This new series will take place in an elven world 1,200 years before the events of The Witcher. Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time, including the creation of the first prototype Witcher and the events that lead to the pivotal Conjunction of the Spheres, when the worlds of monsters, men and elves merged to become one.
This show isn’t the only Witcher spinoff series in development. It was also revealed that a new anime feature is coming which will be more family-friendly than the two live-action shows are and will be. As for The Witcher Season 3, we still don’t really know much about what’s going to happen in the upcoming episodes of the main show. However, we do know that it will continue the story of Geralt of Rivia (played by Cavill), Ciri (played by Freya Allan) and Yennefer (played by Anya Chalotra).
Season 3 has new additions to its cast
It was revealed not too long ago that we’re going to be getting some new additions to The Witcher’s cast in Season. We’re going to see the likes of Robbie Amell, Meng’er Zhang, Hugh Skinner, and Christelle Elwin all join the show’s cast in the upcoming season. It was revealed that Amell would be playing an elven fighter named Gallatin. He will be leading an army of guerrilla Scoia’tael fighting on behalf of Nilfgaard. Zhang will be playing Milva.
She’s described as a human adopted by the dryads of Brokilon Forest who is a fierce and talented huntress. Skinner will be portraying Prince Radovid. He’s a royal playboy and the younger brother to King Vizimir (played by Ed Birch). Finally, Elwin will be playing Mistle who’s a member of The Rats, who are a gang of misfit teenagers who steal from the rich and give to themselves.
