Resident Evil’s divisive television adaptation may have been canned, but The Witcher will return for a third full-length season on Netflix in Summer 2023. Of course, if you can’t wait that long, then you can look forward to prequel The Witcher: Blood Origin, which will debut on Christmas Day later this year. It’ll star English actress Minnie Driver, who’s perhaps best known for her role in Good Will Huntingwhich earned her a couple of Academy Award nominations.
For those curious, Blood Origin will unfold thousands of years prior to Geralt’s story, and will focus on the Conjunction of the Spheres – the moment in which all the species of the Witcher universe came to inhabit its fantasy lands. Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh will star as protagonist Scían in the four-episode mini-series, which should keep you well-occupied this holiday season.
