The Witcher: Blood Origin Rumored To Feature Bigger, Badder Monsters

The size of the inanimate object the crew were working with is said to be so large that it'll dwarf the dragons and kikimores seen in Season 1 of The Witcher. Therefore, Netflix is clearly sparing no expense when it comes to a story set over a thousand years before Geralt's adventures on the Continent.

The expansion of The Witcher franchise continues on Netflix. Animated prequel Nightmare of the Wolf premiering weeks back, Henry Cavill’s second outing as Geralt of Rivia is hitting the platform December 17th, and spinoff Blood Origin is in production.

Recently, shooting moved to United Kingdom — initially in Iceland — and a new report from fan site Redanian Intelligence indicates we could see bigger and badder monsters in the spinoff. Several cast members were spotted filming an action scene with a huge pole; yes, it sounds ridiculous on paper, but indicates that the VFX team will be replacing it with a monstrous beast in post-production.

The size of the inanimate object the crew were working with is said to be so large that it’ll dwarf the dragons and kikimores seen in Season 1 of The Witcher. Therefore, Netflix is clearly sparing no expense when it comes to a story set over a thousand years before Geralt’s adventures on the Continent.

Last month, Blood Origin was given an official logo, which came shortly after 10 new cast members were confirmed to be joining Sophia Brown’s Éile, Laurence O’Fuarain’s Fjall, and Michelle Yeoh’s Scían; furthermore, directors Vicky Jewson and Sarah O’Gorman announced as helming three episodes each. The series doesn’t have an official release yet, but somewhere near the end of 2022 is a likely option.
