Resident Evil’s divisive television adaptation may have been canned, but The Witcher will return for a third full-length season on Netflix in Summer 2023. Of course, if you can’t wait that long, then you can look forward to prequel The Witcher: Blood Origin, which will debut on Christmas Day later this year. It’ll star English actress Minnie Driver, who’s perhaps best known for her role in Good Will Hunting, which earned her a couple of Academy Award nominations.

For those curious, Blood Origin will unfold thousands of years prior to Geralt’s story, and will focus on the Conjunction of the Spheres – the moment in which all the species of the Witcher universe came to inhabit its fantasy lands. Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh will star as protagonist Scían in the four-episode mini-series, which should keep you well-occupied this holiday season.
