Star Trek: Discovery’s Michelle Yeoh cast in Netflix’s upcoming live-action Witcher prequel

The Witcher: Blood Origin is a new six-part series set 1,200 years before Netflix’s Henry-Cavill-starring main Witcher show and will chart the creation of the prototype Witcher, as well as the events leading to the “pivotal” Conjunction of the Spheres – in which a collision of different realms brought monsters into the world.
