International martial arts and action legend Michelle Yeoh is certainly keeping busy as the trailer for her ambitious film Everything Everywhere All at Once dropped this week. Yeoh is also headlining the anticipated prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin which takes place hundreds of years before the first series.
A new teaser has dropped at the end of the second season of The Witcher which just hit Netflix which outlines the epic scope of the series. Check it out below along with new images!
The six-part limited series will be set in an elven world 1,200 years before the events of the main series. “It tells the story lost to time – the creation of the first prototype Witcher,” reads the synopsis. “And the events that lead to the pivotal “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.”
The cast includes Lenny Henry as Chief Druid Balor, Mirren Mack as Merwyn, Nathaniel Curtis as Brían, Dylan Moran as Uthrok One-Nut; Jacob Collins-Levy as Eredin; Lizzie Annis as Zacaré, Huw Novelli as Callan “Brother Death,” Francesca Mills as Meldof; Amy Murray as Fenrik, and Zach Wyatt as Syndril.
The teaser is less than a minute but it highlights perfectly the drama and action elements that will flood the series. This is looking to be an epic medieval looking sword fest with thrilling action set pieces soaked in blood. The prequel series lays the foundation for the current show now streaming on Netflix which stars Henry Cavill.
The Witcher: Blood Origins is set to debut sometime in 2022! The second season of The Witcher is now streaming on Netflix!
