How 'The Witcher: Blood Origin' Sets Up The Witcher Series

The prequel drops some real bombs that will affect the future plot of The Witcher, read on...

The Witcher: Blood Origin

Although The Witcher: Blood Origin's reception isn't all that great, fans of the franchise are excited to see some pretty solid plotlines related to the main series, The Witcher. The miniseries is connected to The Witcher in a direct fashion. In this article, we are going to discuss the ways in which the prequel teases the third season of The Witcher. Before that, feel free to check out the ending explained article of The Witcher: Blood Origin.

The first thing that was teased in The Witcher Season 2 was the existence of the Wild Hunt, which is a horde of elves who see Ciri as their "starry-eyed daughter of chaos," whom they believe is their tribe. Season 2 also ended on a pretty shocking note. We saw that Nilfgaardian Emperor Emhyr var Emreis is the White Flame, who is also Ciri's father and is hellbent on bringing her back home. This means the battle in Blood Origin will eventually turn into a war in The Witcher Season 2. 

The leader of the horde is Eredin Bréacc Glas, and the younger version of the same character appears in the miniseries, The Witcher: Blood Origin. The Spin-off series also explores Ciri's bloodline and how she came through Éile and Fjall. This confirms that Ciri has elder blood. The post-credit scene of the miniseries shows Ciri as a child from one of the character's first scenes in The Witcher.

The Cast Discuss their Future on The Netflix Show

Blood Origin is a limited series by Netflix, as we all know by now, but what does that mean for the cast of the show? Limited series suggest that the characters will appear only in the show and shall not be revisited. However, Sophia Brown said that she would love to return in some capacity. The four-episode miniseries see one of the protagonists, Fjall, getting killed, so we are eager to see how they incorporate his character in this franchise once again. 

"I'd love to see a lot of stuff. I'd love to see how Éile navigates the world with humans and monsters and, you know, with [Fjall's] baby.

"I think there are some ways of exploring them, yeah, I think there's definitely room to grow. Time will tell." O'Fuarain told Newsweek.

Brown said, "Yeah, I can't say how much I enjoyed working on this show, and I would be open to it."
