Netflix Announces The Witcher: Blood Origin
Declan de Barra will act as Executive Producer and Showrunner. When asked about the project, de Barra said, “As a lifelong fan of fantasy, I am beyond excited to tell the story The Witcher: Blood Origin. A question has been burning in my mind ever since I first read The Witcher books - What was the Elven world really like before the cataclysmic arrival of the humans?”.
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who will act as Executive Producer, says, “I am so thrilled to collaborate with Declan and the Netflix team on The Witcher: Blood Origin. It’s an exciting challenge to explore and expand The Witcher universe created by Andrzej Sapkowski, and we can’t wait to introduce fans to new characters and an original story that will enrich our magical, mythical world even more.”
“It is exciting that the world of Witcher - as planned in the very beginning - is expanding. I hope it will bring more fans to the world of my books”, says Andrzej Sapkowski, the author of the world of The Witcher.
The Witcher: Blood Origin will shoot in the UK.
