The Witcher: Blood Origin season 2 is probably unlikely at Netflix because the show has been billed as a limited series. But here’s what we know so far.

Blood Origin is an epic new Netflix action-fantasy series set within The Witcher universe. Although it is based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s world and stories, the prequel is mostly an original tale introducing new characters. It is set 1,200 years before the parent series.

The four-part show is mostly an open-and-closed tale that functions similarly to a movie, so a second season doesn’t feel necessary, but is it possible?

The Witcher: Blood Origin season 2 renewal status

Netflix has not renewed or canceled The Witcher: Blood Origin at the time of writing this article.

Will The Witcher: Blood Origin get a second season?

It’s unlikely that Netflix will renew Blood Origin for another season because it is being billed as a limited event series. Even if the show gets excellent ratings, Netflix is more likely to order additional spinoffs or films rather than do a direct follow-up to this show.

Another reason for that is due to the series’ troubled production, leading to the episode count getting cut down from six to four, not to mention the reshoots. While a second season isn’t impossible, Netflix has other properties in The Witcher universe that it would be better off focusing on rather than returning to this particular series.

What’s next for The Witcher universe?

The next thing Witcher fans have to look forward to at Netflix is the third season which will be released in the summer of 2023. The Witcher was already renewed for a fourth season, but Henry Cavill will not be returning to play Geralt, and the role has been recast with Liam Hemsworth. Besides that, Netflix is rumored to be considering another live-action spinoff about the Rats.
