Announced at the streamer’s fan event Tudum on Saturday, the “Witcher” spinoff series “The Witcher: Blood Origin” will debut on Dec. 25, and ‘The Witcher Season 3’ will follow in the summer of 2023.
Fans last visited “The Witcher” universe nearly one year ago, when Season 2 of the Henry Cavill fantasy series dropped in December 2021.
Since then, it’s spawned even more spinoffs. In addition to the “Blood Origin” limited series, an anime feature is on the way and a family-friendly “Witcher” series is in the works.

Joining the cast are Robbie Amell, Meng’er Zhang, Hugh Skinner and Christelle Elwin.
Amell plays an elven fighter named Gallatin, who leads an army of guerrilla Scoia’tael fighting on behalf of Nilfgaard.
Zhang is Milva, a human adopted by the dryads of Brokilon Forest who is a fierce and talented huntress.
Skinner plays Prince Radovid, a royal playboy and the younger brother to King Vizimir (Ed Birch).
Elwin is Mistle, a member of The Rats, who are a gang of misfit teenagers who steal from the rich and give to themselves.
