What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
In the Witcher series, written by Andrzej Sapkowski, the plot revolves around a witcher named Geralt. He is a representative of a kind of people who are not alien to magic. These characters do not age and are engaged in providing services to eliminate all sorts of monsters. All this unfolds against the backdrop of the confrontation between humans and elves. The author of the Witcher series, Declan de Barra, said that after reading all the books about the witchers, he became interested in how it happened that people appeared on the elf continent and why there was a clash between the two races, which resulted in a long war. This is what the new project is dedicated to, whose release date will take place in 2022.
Also, the backstory of the original series will dwell in more detail on the origin of the Witchers and will explain why these people own magic, are not sensitive to other people’s magic and why there are too few of them. In the upcoming series, viewers will not see characters from the original story, but it is known for certain that the show will have several main characters – a representative of humans, elves and witchers. Having considered the views of the confrontation from different sides, the authors want to give an understanding of what is happening without bias. The release date of the series The Witcher Origins is expected in 2022.
It is known that Lawrence O’Fuarain got the role in the new Netflix show; viewers could see him in the TV series Game of Thrones and Vikings. At the start of the project, there were rumors about Jason Momoa’s participation in it, but the information remained unconfirmed. However, the authors of the series reveal little information about the actors and the plot, so there may be surprises. It is known that the script The Witcher Origins is not based on books and is completely original, but according to the showrunner of the series Declan de Barre, it was approved by Sapkowski himself. The release date of the project is expected in 2022.
