Sarah O’Gorman (‘The Last Kingdom’) and Vicky Jewson (‘Born of War’) will direct the episodes.
The production will take place in an elven world, 1,200 years before the events starring Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) – and will show the creation of the first wizard.
“Blood Origin will tell a lost story – the origin of the first wizard and the events that led to the crucial conjunction of the spheres, when the world of monsters, men and elves merged into one. “
Andrzej Sapkowski, author of the books, will be the creative advisor for the series.
