The Witcher Season 3 And Blood Origin Release Dates Revealed (VIDEO)
The entertainment industry has seen a massive shift in focus toward streaming services in recent years, and with that shift has reached a nearly unprecedented uptick in funding for genre fiction projects. Netflix had made it quite clear after the success of their TV series adapting The Witcher novels (and games, to an extent) that they would be doubling down on their Witcher universe with several spinoff projects, including animated specials and a new prequel series. Now, Netflix has finally announced The Witcher season 3 and Blood Origin release dates, along with some new details about these upcoming entries in the Witcher universe.
Variety has reported on the new details revealed by Netflix about their upcoming Witcher projects, after having recently disclosed them as a part of their digital Tudum presentation. Henry Cavill appears halfway through the event confirming The Witcher season 3 is indeed releasing in the summer of 2023. Cavill then introduces a behind-the-scenes featurette hosted by co-stars Anya Chalotra and Freya Allen. Very little has been revealed so far about season 3, but it is known that the new season will include some fresh faces joining the cast. Upload’s Robbie Amell has been cast as elven fighter Gallatin, while Shang-Chi’s Meng’er Zhang has been cast as the huntress Milva. The Tudum presentation also provided some other interesting updates, including The Witcher: Blood Origin release date.
It was confirmed that The Witcher: Blood Origin release date will land on December 25th this year. The spinoff series is set 1,200 years before the events of the main Witcher story and will consist of four episodes. The series will star Michelle Yeoh as Scian, who is on an important mission to retrieve a magic sword stolen from her elven people. Joining Yeoh will be Sophia Brown as Queen’s guard member Éile, and Laurence O’Fuarain as the vengeance-seeking Fjall. The next year looks to be quite promising for Witcher fans, and hopefully, they can keep themselves occupied in this mad monster-less hellscape reality we live in until then.
