Blood Origin Showrunner Debunks Alternate Geralt Existence in The Witcher Multiverse

The Witcher: Blood Origin is finally here and the prequel series has revealed so much more about the Continent. For instance, it was immediately confirmed that the monoliths allow travel between different dimensions and one character does in fact use them for that purpose. Not surprisingly, this has led to speculations that this will be how Liam Hemsworth's Geralt will take over for Henry Cavill.

So does the existence of The Witcher Multiverse confirm that there is an alternate Geralt of Rivia in the main series? Blood Origin showrunner Declan de Barra has addressed the possibility and debunked the idea of variants in all these different dimensions.

If we've learned anything from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are several different versions of the characters. However, Declan de Barra told Gamesradar that it doesn't work the same way in The Witcher.

"There are no different versions," de Barra said. "They're the same characters, but the worlds that they travel between are very different, and they exist on different time planes in some cases. There's a lot of world jumping, but they're the same characters jumping between those worlds."

He continued, "They may have changed in terms of their character arc and how long they've lived and what they're doing on these other worlds, but it's the same person. It’s not like there are two versions of Jaskier. It’s straight up that there’s one version of Yennefer, one version of everybody."

Although de Barra doesn't say anything about Geralt, it's clear that the same applies to the White Wolf. Fans had already stated believing that The Witcher Season 4 will explain the recast this way. However, it looks like the series will have a different way to deal with Liam Hemsworth's introduction.

All four episodes of The Witcher: Blood Origin are now streaming on Netflix.
