The Witcher: Blood Origin Trailer

The trailer has been released on YouTube under the official channel of Netflix. Barren land is shown in the initial parts of the video, followed by showing the existence of some unusual beings. Those creatures are also portrayed as having abundant knowledge of weapons and their armies.

The background shows the text as ‘Every Story Has a Beginning,’ after which fights are demonstrated between the humans and those unnatural creatures. During the video, a piece of somewhat cynical music continues to play in the background while showing some more out-of-the-box beings similar to humans but having many notable differences. 

It is notified in the trailer that an untold chapter is brought to them by the creators of the series. While approaching the end, the title of the series is displayed along with the platform on which the series would be aired.

The Witcher: Blood Origin Storyline

The story is set 1200 years before all the events we have seen in the Witcher series. During that time, the Conjunction of the Spheres has such an effect that alters the universe. Initially, the time before the Conjugation would also be included in the series so that the audience can see the difference between both times.

Emphasis on the Elven society of old times has been there. The tensions between races are highlighted as they get to know each other. Different communities would appear and disappear, leading to no happy endings. People from different societies would be seen fighting, ultimately leading to bloodshed.

The audience would be seeing the evolution of Witchers occurring from the Human race due to rigorous training and experimenting with magic. The world before the conjugation would be shown in the series as well. 


Much of the information about the series has been kept private. Witcher fans are direly waiting for the series to get aired. The teaser has given a generalised idea about the show’s focus and the situations shown. 

The production team has promised to bring a new concept to the viewers’ entertainment. The series is expected to get a similar response to the Witcher seasons released. People are already making speculations about a great prequel as it would be the base of the whole series.
