The Witcher: Blood Origin Plot and Cast

Michelle Yeoh

The Witcher: Blood Origin is a prequel to the original Netflix series that will tell a story set far before the events we’ve seen in the books or the Netflix shows so far and will reveal some of The Continent’s history.

Netflix’s description for the series reads: “Every story has a beginning. Witness the untold history of the Continent with The Witcher: Blood Origin, a new prequel series set in an elven world 1200 years before the events of The Witcher.

Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time – exploring the creation of the first prototype Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal “Conjunction of the Spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one”. Witcher creator Andrzej Sapkowski is on board as a creative consultant and The Witcher showrunner, Lauren S. Hissrich, is acting as an executive producer on the series.

The two biggest names attached to the prequel series are Michelle Yeoh as Scían, a surviving member of a group of elves on a personal quest, and Sir Lenny Henry as Chief Druid Balor.

The series also stars Laurence O’Fuarain as Fjall, Sophia Brown as Éile, Mirren Mack (The Nest) as Merwyn, comedian Dylan Moran as Uthrok One-Nut, Jacob-Collins-Levy as Eredin, Nathaniel Curtis as Brían, Lizzie Annis as Zacaré, Huw Novelli as Callan “Brother Death”, Francesca Mills as Meldof, Amy Murray as Fenrik, and Zach Wyatt as Syndril.

Jodie Turner-Smith was originally cast as Éile, but she was forced to leave the show due to scheduling conflicts back in April 2021 leaving Netflix to recast the role.
