As announced back in July of 2020, Netflix is working on The Witcher: Blood Origin, which is a six-part, live-action limited series. We already knew that Declan de Barra, The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, and the author of the books, Andrzej Sapkowski were involved. Now we know who else is stepping in to write the feature.
This feature is going to be penned by The Aaron Stewart-Ahn, Kiersten Van Horne, Alex Meenehan, Tasha Huo, Troy Dangerfield, Tania Lotia, and Pooja Gupta. This is quite the talented group of people, as they've offered their writing skills to shows like Swamp Thing, Carnival Row, Moon Knight, Snowpiercer, Mandy, Iron Fist, and more.
Over on the rumor side of things, we're hearing that Netflix wants to grab Jason Momoa as the lead for this prequel. We'll have to stay tuned to see if that pans out.
