With the first season of "The Witcher" Netflix was able to impress fans and critics around the globe. After the animated film "Nightmare Of The Wolf" was already announced, fans can now look forward to further additions to "The Witcher" universe. The new live-action series will be called "Blood Origin" and will include a total of six episodes. The content will be a story set 1200 years before the main plot and will deal with the decline of the elven civilization. The so-called sphere conjunction is also supposed to play a major role. This is a special event in which several parallel universes met and merged into the world in which the plot of "The Witcher" main series also takes place. Only through this conjunction of spheres the humans are supposed to have gained magical abilities, which is why the first witchers were formed. Responsible for the six-part series are the two producers Declan de Barra and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who are also involved in the main series. Andrzej Sapkowski, the author of "The Witcher" novels, is also on board and will be responsible for the content.

Unfortunately, there is no fixed start date at the moment, but there are many indications that "Blood Origin" will be released between the second and third season, which means a release date in late 2021 or early 2022 is likely.
