Toss a coin to your Witcher prequel series.

The Witcher: Blood Origin's latest trailer has revealed that Joey Batey's Jaskier, he of 'Toss a Coin to Your Witcher' fame, will be part of the 4-part event prequel series.

The latest trailer for The Witcher: Blood Origin was revealed at CCXP in Brazil and gives us a great look at the “origin of the Witcher saga,” and Jaskier surprisingly appears right at the end in front of Minnie Driver's Seanchaí.

“You're a bard. I'm a storyteller. I need you to sing a story back to life,” Seanchaí says.

Jaskier then responds with, “Are you sure you've got the right man for this?”

While the arrival of Jaskier is great news for fans of The Witcher, it's also a bit of an interesting development as this new series takes place 1,200 years before the original series. The trailer talks about monoliths that are causing tears between worlds, so they could be responsible for Jaskier's role in the story.

Jaskier in The Witcher: Blood Origin

However, there are some theories online that Jaskier is actually immortal, especially considering he hasn't really aged throughout the over two decades we have already seen of Netflix's The Witcher.

As for the rest of the trailer, we catch another glimpse of the seven main heroes of our story, who are all outcasts and strangers to each other who must come together to fight an “unstoppable empire.”

Speaking of that empire, we also see more of Lenny Henry's Chief Sage Balor and the tease of his powerful beast. This beast also appears to be the key to creating the first Witcher as it appears the team will attempt to merge the beast's power with one of the heroes to use the enemy's greatest weapon against them.

Netflix also shared new key art of the series, and it features the seven heroes of The Witcher: Blood Origin, including Michelle Yeoh's Scian, Sophia Brown's Eile, and Laurence O'Fuarain's Fjall.
