We always wonder when the second season of Netflix’s The Witcher series will premiere. Although it is true that he has had a complicated filming, including stoppages in filming due to the coronavirus and an untimely injury to Henry Cavill. But it must be remembered that there is another television production based on the books by Andrzej Sapkowski. We are talking about The Witcher Blood Origin, which will act as a prequel and will also be broadcast on the on-demand television platform.
Now, as they tell from Deadline, we already know one of the actors chosen to play one of the main characters of the series, which will be a live action spin-off of The Witcher itself. It will be the Irish actor Laurence O’Fuarain, whose face may sound familiar to you from other renowned television series such as Vikings or Game of Thrones.
1200 years before Geralt of Rivia, the worlds of monsters, men and elves merged into one, and the first Witcher came to be.

O’Fuarain will play Fjail, of which the first details are known. The character was born into a clan of warriors who swore protection to the king. And on his body he bears the emotional scar of the death of a loved one who fell in battle trying to save him, so he is tormented by his past and does not forgive himself for what happened. That is why he embarks on the search for redemption although along the way he has to ally himself with people opposed to his principles, all to find the revenge he longs for.
The Witcher doubles up on TV
It is the second addition to the series that we know of, after that of actress Jodie Turner-Smith, who will give life to Elie, a warrior blessed with the voice of a goddess who leaves her clan and her position as guardian of the Queen to follow what he asks for his heart like nomadic music. Until the blood knocks on his door and he must again choose the path of blood.
The plot of The Witcher: Blood Origin will take place 1,200 years before The Witcher and will tell a story lost through time, with the creation of the first Witcher prototype and the events that give rise to the “conjunction of the spheres”, where monsters, men and elves merged to become one. It will consist of a total of six chapters. This week we have also met several new signings for the series starring Geralt de Rivia.
