An epic new Netflix action-fantasy series that belongs to The Witcher universe, Blood Origin is based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s titular novel series. Serving as a prequel, Blood Origin is set 1200 years before the mainstream series and is considered to be an original tale constituting new characters.
Created by Declan de Barra and Lauren Schmidt, this prequel is set in the same world where Henry Cavil’s Geralt of Rivia lives. It will mainly focus upon an “elven world 1200 years before the show” and portray the events that culminated in the “Conjunction of the Spheres”.
Here’s the official synopsis of The Witcher: Blood Origin (courtesy of Netflix):
“More than a thousand years before the events of “The Witcher,” seven outcasts in an Elven world join forces in a quest against an all-powerful empire.”
Premiered on December 25, 2022, Netflix Life contends that a second season doesn’t seem like an option since “The four-part show is mostly an open-and-closed tale that functions similarly to a movie.”
But, will there be a second season to Blood Origin? Here’s what we think.
Has Netflix renewed The Witcher: Blood Origin for a second season?
At the time of writing, Netflix hasn’t renewed or canceled The Witcher: Blood Origin for a second season. Corroborating with Netflix Life, we also contend that the possibility of Netflix renewing Blood Origin for another seems unlikely because “it is being billed as a limited event series”(Netflix Life).
However, the renewal of any show depends upon a variety of factors including viewership figures, cost of production, and more. Be that as it may, even if the show observes an exponential rise in viewership figures or receives excellent ratings, Netflix may not order a second season. Rather, the possibility of the official stream ordering additional spin-offs or films on the same might emerge.
In addition to the above-mentioned inferences, another reason why The Witcher: Blood Origin might not get a season renewal is the initial episode was cut down from six to four, along with the reshoots.
However, despite the paucity of the possibility of a second season renewal, Netflix has some other plans for expanding The Witcher universe.
What is Netflix planning for The Witcher universe?
In the summer of 2023, the Witcher fans can look forward to the release of the third season of the mainstream series, The Witcher. If you’ve not been updated with the recent news, then you should know that The Witcher has been already renewed for a fourth season. However, in the upcoming seasons, we won’t be seeing Henry Cavill reprising the role of Geralt since is replaced by Liam Hemsworth.
According to Netflix Life, “Netflix is rumored to be considering another live-action spinoff about the Rats.
