'The Witcher' Season 2 Post-Credit Scene Explained: What That 'Blood Origin' Preview Means

The Witcher Season 2 landed on Netflix on Friday, December 17, presenting the next chapter in the lives of Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), Princess Ciri (Freya Allan) and Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra).

The eight-episode season ended with an explosive finale, but that wasn't the only surprise that the show had for fans. There was also an unexpected post-credit scene.

It teased what's to come in The Witcher's prequel Blood Origin and here is everything you need to know about it.

What 'The Witcher: Blood Origin' Post-Credit Scene Is

After the credits rolled for The Witcher's second season, fans got their first glimpse of the show's prequel in a post-credit scene.

The spin-off is set 1,200 years before the events of Cavill's show and will reveal the origins of the first Witcher.

Presented without dialogue, the preview clip opens with a first look at Sophia Brown's Éile and Laurence O'Fuarain's Fjall, who appear to meet under tense circumstances as the former holds up a knife to warn the latter.

Michelle Yeoh's Scian is also introduced, seen holding a sword in her arms before practicing with it.

The elven trio then join together and are shown traversing their world and fighting a number of enemies, who appear to be human.

Nathaniel Curtis' Brían is also shown briefly, as is Lenny Henry's character Chief Druid Balor and Mirren Mack's Merwyn.

The teaser ends with a final shot of Éile, Fjall and Scian alongside three others, facing off against an unseen foe.

What the Post-Credit Scene Means

Given that the elves are fighting humans, it appears the show will depict "the Conjunction of the Spheres"—the cataclysmic event that led to the creation of the Continent.

In the Conjunction, multiple worlds collided with each other, leading to monsters being trapped in the show's dimension.

The only way to stop these fearsome creatures is to create a monster that is itself a monster hunter—a Witcher. How this came about—and the origins of the Witcher's Trial of the Grasses—will likely be a main plot point in the prequel.

It is also likely the prequel will explore the elven civilisation before they were all but wiped out in the time of The Witcher, and it may examine how this destruction came to be.

The Witcher Seasons 1 and 2 are available to stream globally on Netflix now. The Witcher: Blood Origin is yet to be given a release date.

Update 12.20.21 9.30 a.m. ET: This article was updated to include the teaser trailer for The Witcher: Blood Origin after Netflix officially released the clip. It was originally a post-credit scene for The Witcher Season 2.
