Joey Batty teases what Gasquier’s bloodline takes to The Witcher season 3

The Witcher: Blood Origin is set 1,200 years before the events of the main Netflix series The Witcher, but that doesn’t mean everyone’s favorite humorous poet won’t be around for the occasion. It was revealed that Joey Batty would reprise the role of Gasquier in the prequel series, though in the present and the story in the past, it was unknown what his role would be or how it would be woven into the story. recently got a chance to sit down with Patty to get some details on his role and what fans can expect from Jaskier in Blood Origin, as well as whether he’ll be taking anything from Blood Origin into the main series and season 3.

“Well, I mean, it’s the cover of the book and the vessel, the amphora through which this story is told, and that’s pretty much all it is,” Patty said. And I think it takes the weight of this story and the great performances and all the art that’s been thrown into this show and carries the weight of Declan’s story in Season 3. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Elven people oppressed and it’s about time someone tried to shape a narrative of that within the continent and try to do some Goodness with this story. So yeah, there might be a little bit of a continuation of it in Season 3.”

Season 3 will likely deal with some other big teasers from season 2, like Wild Hunt, so it’ll be interesting to see if any ripple effects from Blood Origin make their way to that story now that Jaskier has a part to play. We’ll just have to wait and see how that plays out when The Witcher season 3 begins next year.

The Witcher: Blood Origin stars Lawrence Ofwarin (Vagall), Sophia Braun (Elle), Michelle Yeoh (Skyan), Meryn Mack (Empress Merwen), Francesca Mills (Meldove), Lenny Henry (Balor), Hugh Novelli (Brother Death) and Lizzie Annis (Zacare), Zach Wyatt (Syndril), Joey Batey (Jaskier), and Minnie Driver, and you can find the official description below.
