The origin of the witchers is finally told
Now that Season 2 of The Witcher is gracing our screens, most of us are probably binging the heck out of it as a part of our Holiday viewing schedule, somewhere between Home Alone 2 and Elf. But, there’s another tale to be told featuring elves and their home, and it’s much darker than anything you drink eggnog to.
The “post credits” scene (they’re everywhere now, aren’t they?) at the end of Witcher S2 is actually the teaser for the upcoming Blood Origin prequel series. Set 1200 years before the events of The Witcher, BO will tell the story of the Elves and the first prototype witcher as they aim to protect their home before all is lost.
Though the story is set at the beginnings of the continent, expect the show to thematically move at a different pace than the super dark Henry Cavill series — but yeah, there will still be a hell of a lot of blood and monsters.
