The Witcher – Blood Origin: On the red carpet with the cast and director
The Witcher: Blood Origin explores the backstory to The Witcher world by taking viewers to a time over twelve hundred years earlier than the Golden Age of the Elven world. The narrative follows seven outcast Elves as they traverse fantastical landscapes before the “Conjuncture of the Spheres” when the human world collided with theirs, and restless tensions and the first prototype Witcher emerged.
Breathing new life into The Witcher saga are returning faces, alongside an array of new characters, contained in an action-packed, gore-filled and emotive four-part series.
