The Witcher proved to be a gigantic success for Netflix, and with a second season confirmed for the future, that's not the only tale we'll be getting from the world inhabited by Geralt of Rivia. The streaming service has just announced The Witcher: Blood Origin, but this spin-off won't feature the famous monster slayer.

The tweet confirming the announcement states: "1200 years before Geralt of Rivia, the worlds of monsters, men and elves merged into one, and the first Witcher came to be. Announcing The Witcher: Blood Origin, a 6 part live-action The Witcher spin-off series from Declan de Barra and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich." The former wrote one episode in the first Netflix season while Hissrich is the overall showrunner of The Witcher. This prequel appears to be in pretty safe hands.

Besides the tweet, details are extremely scarce. Given the popularity of the first full season though, we reckon Netflix will have another winner on its hands. Are you looking forward to this prequel series? Toss a coin to your Witcher in the comments below.
