Season 2 of The Witcher hit Netflix this past Friday, and if you've already managed to binge-through all 8 episodes, you'll more than likely have caught a first look at some footage from upcoming prequel series, Blood Origin, as a post-credits scene.
The streamer has now officially released the teaser trailer online, giving us a glimpse of our elven heroes in action.
Michelle Yeoh (Shang-Chi, Gunpowder Milkshake) will star as Scían, "the very last of her nomadic tribe of sword-elves, she is an artist with the blade, on a deadly quest that will change the fate of the Continent." She'll be joined by Laurence O’Fuarain (Game of Thrones, Vikings, Black 47) as Fjall, "a warrior who was born into a clan sworn to protect a King," and Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen and Slim, True Blood, Nightflyers) as Éile, "a warrior turned travelling musician from a rival clan."
Specific plot details are still mostly under wraps, but we do know that the show will be set 1200 years before the events of The Witcher, and focus on the origin of the very first monster hunter as well as the events that lead to the pivotal "conjunction of the spheres."
Declan de Barra will serve as showrunner and will also executive produce along with Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. The Witcher novelist Andrzej Sapkowski is on board as creative consultant.
Blood Origin is set to premiere next year.
