While the leading actress left the ship The Witcher: Blood Origin, the main antagonist of the spin-off Adventures of the Witcher Geralt of Rivia was known, and not just anyone.
Season 2 in preparation, Season 3 confirmed
The second season of the hit series The Witcher, based on the novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, but also on video games developed by CD Projekt, is currently in the middle of filming, and we have just learned that an extremely important novel has been confirmed for this. In addition, Netflix is already working on a third season. Regarding the split: The Witcher Blood Origin will take place 1200 years before the adventures of the witcher Geralt de Riv and will be filmed live via a miniseries in 6 episodes – action – the story of the very first witcher. On this subject, new information gradually comes in to solve the puzzle.
Laurence O’Fuarain, one of the main characters we discovered in Vikings or Game of Thrones in particular, will play Fjall, a warrior who is haunted by the death of a loved one. We recently learned that lead actress Jodie Turner-Smith, who was supposed to play Rush, an elite warrior, withdrew from the project because the shooting dates of her various projects were too close.
A bad villain
But good news comes to make up for this bad news: the identity of the show’s big bad guys would be known and of greatness. It would be Eredin Bréacc Glas, better known by the name of the King of the Wild Hunt, an Aén Elle who haunted Ciri in the novels and in the third video game of the license: The Witcher 3. Better the actor Jacob Collins- The levy should do the role of the super villain.
While no connection was made a priori to the original series, video games and novels (Andrzej Sapkowski never wrote a story about the first witcher, this series is a pure Netflix creation), the introduction of the King of the Wild Hunt represents that first connection, and will don’t fail to make the fan base smile.
Also, remember that The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, the next 2D animated film for Netflix by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, will focus on the story of Vesemir, mentor to Geralt De Riv. At the moment we are still waiting for the release date and the first pictures.
