Initially, the spin-off series was supposed to have eight episodes, but it was reduced to six after De Barra evaluated the work as a whole. In an interview with Netflix, he said that in this way, the content will “feel logical and correct from a natural narrative point of view”, instead of a “two-part movie”.
It remains for fans, therefore, to stay tuned for episodes of The Witcher: Origin to better understand the universe of the franchise and find connections with the original series, which is already moving into its 3rd season. Remembering that a 4th season of Geralt’s plot is also confirmed and will have Liam Hemsworth in the role of the witcher.
