The premiere of The Witcher: Blood Origin is still a week away but it looks like Lauren Schmidt Hissrich is already looking towards the future. The showrunner of the main series revealed her ideas for more spin-off shows, and one of the projects could explore the Golden Age of Elves.

It's no secret that The Witcher: Blood Origin will explore how the first Witcher was made and follow how the Conjunction of the Spheres happened. Additionally, the spin-off series will give us a glimpse at the ancient Elven civilization at its prime.

The Elves are clearly a topic that Lauren Schmidt Hissrich wishes to explore more. In an interview with the Polish outlet Kultura, the Blood Origin co-creator shared her plans for a future spin-off project.

"We could go back to the roots and genesis of particular events for a really long time. I was also wondering what the Golden Age of the elves was like because it seems so romantic," Hissrich said. "This may not be a popular opinion among The Witcher fans, but I have a feeling that these stories are waiting to be discovered. There are so many directions in which you can go and constantly develop them."

It might not be something that viewers are particularly interested in but the Elves have been an intriguing aspect of the main series. The idea of seeing how they went from being the most powerful beings on the Continent to a dying breed is an interesting one and it could show us a different side of the universe.

Hissrich is certainly hopeful about the future of The Witcher despite the recent setback where Henry Cavill decided to leave the main show. Although they have lost the original Geralt of Rivia, the cast and crew are clearly pushing forward with the series.

The Witcher: Blood Origin will premiere on Netflix on December 25, 2022.
