Netflix Sets Premiere Date for Drama 'The Witcher: Blood Origin' Starring Sophia Brown, Laurence O'Fuarain and Michelle Yeoh

During today's Tudum event, Netflix announced the premiere date for its upcoming original drama series The Witcher: Blood Origin starring Sophia Brown, Laurence O'Fuarain and Michelle Yeoh.

All four episodes will be available on Sunday, December 25.

Set in an elven world 1200 years before the events of The Witcher, this drama tells a story lost to time - one of seven outcasts who unite against an unstoppable power that took everything from them. Their blood quest gives rise to a prototype Witcher in a conflict that brings about the "conjunction of the spheres," when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.

In addition to Brown, O'Fuarain and Yoeh, the drama stars Lenny Henry, Mirren Mack, Nathaniel Curtis, Dylan Moran, Jacob Collins Levy, Lizzie Annis, Huw Novelli, Francesca Mills, Amy Murray and Zach Wyatt.

Minnie Driver has also joined the upcoming drama as its narrator. She will detail the events of the series in character, the identity of which is being kept under wraps. However, it's noted she could appear onscreen in the upcoming third season of The Witcher - which will premiere in Summer 2023.

Declan de Barra created the drama. He executive produces with Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, Jason Brown, Sean Daniel, Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko.
