Graphic violence and horror
Similar to The Witcher, the series includes lots of fighting scenes with gory violence, killings, bloody injuries and scary monsters.
In comparison to The Witcher, there is more fighting between people than between people and monsters.
The series includes frank sexual references and language, as well as occasional sex scenes. Characters chat about brothels, sexual intercourse and refer to their “cocks” a fair amount.
Unlike in the original Witcher series, there isn’t a strong focus on sex in The Witcher: Blood Origin, and most sexual content is brief and not detailed.
One character seeks revenge for her partner who was sexually assaulted and murdered. The sexual assault is not shown or described in detail and there are only a few brief references to the event. However, this could be uncomfortable for viewers with similar experiences or who have sensitivities towards content that includes or references sexual violence.
