The Witcher: Blood Origin is a 4 episode miniseries created by Lauren Schmidt and starring Michelle Yeoh, Sophia Brown and Laurence O’Fuarain.
The prequel to the series The Witcher that is now streaming, and sends the clear message: life carries on after Henry Cavil.
We still do not know how the fans will receive it, but in this mini-series, there are some spectacular fight scenes that very nimbly, and perhaps too often, have melodramatic moments.
Brutal and wild, nostalgic, captivating, ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ is a prequel that serves a foretaste for what is to come, though, truth be told, something has changed forever in The Witcher.
More than a thousand years before the world of The Witcher, seven outcasts in the elven world unite in a blood quest against an unstoppable power.
