Meanwhile, season three of The Witcher arrives next summer.
The Witcher: Blood Origin, a prequel to Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy novel series, will debut on December 25, the streaming giant announced recently during its Tudum event.
The Witcher: Blood Origin coming to Netflix in December
Netflix also revealed that English actress Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting, Starstruck) is part of the cast. Driver will narrate the events of the show and may even appear in The Witcher, which will return next summer with a new season. Gaub also showed just a hint of the setting and on his Instagram. The post features cranes and large set pieces that convey the idea that the team “won’t be dropping the intensity in The Witcher season 3.” The producer also shows just a few prop doors and windows that look old and gothic enough. Oh, and we can’t forget the dark and dank underground dungeons, can we?
Lauren Hissrich also showed off the show’s first day of production on Instagram. She’s the showrunner, so obviously has a big hand in the final decisions. Her photo shows several forests and can I just say they are stunning even if they aren’t used for the show. Hopefully season three will be a lot easier to make and our Geralt will stay out of harm’s way. Or at least watch out for him when he’s fighting all the ridiculous monsters in the Witcher books.
