While we patiently wait for The Witcher season 2 to drop (any time now), Netflix announced that blockbuster film veteran Michelle Yeoh will be joining the cast of The Witcher: Blood Origin, a prequel spin-off series.

According to Netflix, Yeoh will bring her star power and action chops in the role of Scían, the last remaining member of a tribe of “sword-elves”, who is on the quest to get back a stolen sacred sword.

Based on the novels by author Andrzej Sapkowski, Blood Origin focuses on the creation of the first prototype monster hunters called Witchers and the events that lead to the “Conjunction of the Spheres” that releases monsters and magic into the world.

There are no other details of the series, which is still far away from production, but Netflix and game developer CD Projekt Red will be hosting the virtual and first-ever WitcherCon on July 9.
