Since The Witcher first made its way to Netflix in 2019, the series has expanded into several spin-offs, most recently the prequel Blood Origin.
Blood Origin takes place 1,200 years before the story of Geralt of Rivia, at a time when neither humans nor monsters existed on the entire continent.
That all changed with the Conjunction of the Spheres, but what exactly is the cataclysmic event at the heart of The Witcher: Blood Origin?

The Witcher: Blood Origin Gallops Sunday, December 25, 2022 on Netflix.
Set 1,200 years before the events of The Witcher in an elf world, the series tells the story of seven outcasts who must band together to fight against an unstoppable force.
An earth-shattering event known as the Conjunction of the Spheres plunges their world into war as newly arrived races fight for supremacy.
With the emergence of deadly monsters and powerful magics wreaking havoc, our seven heroes embark on a blood quest that yields the very first witcher.
What is the conjunction of the spheres in The Witcher: Blood Origin?
The Conjunction of the Spheres was a cataclysmic event in which the once separate realms of elves, humans, and monsters collided into one.
Originally, the continent we know in The Witcher was home to elves, dwarves, and gnomes, but that all changed when the conjunction gave birth to several other races, primarily humans, and a variety of monsters.
The conjunction also brought about the arrival of a mystical force that came to be known as “chaos” or “magic.”
The newly arrived humans quickly learned to use this magic and set out to conquer the once elven lands, eventually dominating much of the world.
How was the first Witcher created?
Due to the presence of dangerous monsters across the continent, the human settlers tasked their mages with creating warriors capable of magic that could slay the deadly creatures.
In the books, the very first Witchers were created at Rissberg Castle as part of an experiment by the magician Cosimo Malaspina and his apprentice Alzur, who developed the first Witcher mutation process.
However, the first group of witchers proved to have limited magical potential and were deemed to have failed before being banished from the castle.
But that didn’t stop the evolution of the fabled monster hunters as another group of mages continued the experiment at Castle Morgraig.
They eventually perfected the mutation process, in which young boys are subjected to a series of terrifying physical and chemical tests that turn all survivors into mutant sorcerers, granting them heightened senses and magical abilities not possessed by normal humans.
The Witcher: Blood Origin will be available to stream on Netflix on December 25, 2022.
