THE WITCHER is getting a limited edition prequel, THE WITCHER: BLOOD ORIGIN.

According to Netflix, the six-part limited series is “set in an elven world 1200 years before the world of THE WITCHER, Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time – the origin of the very first 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.”

“As a lifelong fan of fantasy, I am beyond excited to tell the story THE WITCHER: BLOOD ORIGIN,” executive producer Declan de Barra said in a statement. “A question has been burning in my mind ever since I first read THE WITCHER books – What was the Elven world really like before the cataclysmic arrival of the humans?”

“I’ve always been fascinated by the rise and fall of civilizations, how science, discovery, and culture flourish right before that fall,” he continued. “How vast swathes of knowledge are lost forever in such a short time, often compounded by colonization and a rewriting of history. Leaving only fragments of a civilization’s true story behind. THE WITCHER: BLOOD ORIGIN will tell the tale of the Elven civilization before its fall, and most importantly reveal the forgotten history of the very first Witcher.”

“I am so thrilled to collaborate with Declan and the Netflix team on THE WITCHER: BLOOD ORIGIN,” THE WITCHER showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said. “It’s an exciting challenge to explore and expand THE WITCHER universe created by Andrzej Sapkowski, and we can’t wait to introduce fans to new characters and an original story that will enrich our magical, mythical world even more.”

Added Sapkowski: “It is exciting that the world of WITCHER – as planned in the very beginning – is expanding. I hope it will bring more fans to the world of my books.”

The prequel series is set to film in the UK.

Before the Netflix franchise, the book series inspired video games and a Polish film/TV run.
