What’s the Storyline for ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’?

Set 1200 years before the occurrences of its mother series, The Witcher: Blood Origin will take fans back to where everything began. The show will explore the never-told-before story of its mother’s continent, from the first Witcher creation and what led to the mix-up of spheres where elves, men, and monsters became one. 

Currently, the elves are striving to build their long-gone kingdom while seeking refuge in Cintra (a realm already experiencing many struggles). The Witcher: Blood Origin will cover the entire story of the rise and fall of the Elvin kingdom.
