The Witcher Netflix Series Has 7 Seasons Already Mapped Out
It looks like The Witcher showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich plans on playing the long game with the upcoming Netflix series. Recently announced to be arriving on the streaming service on December 20 of this year, The Witcher has yet to be renewed for a second season by Netflix, though that hasn’t stopped Hissrich from dreaming big and laying out her plans for what may come should the show’s first season be a successful one.
As reported by Comic Book, Lauren S. Hissrich recently spoke about The Witcher series in an interview with SFX, wherein she revealed that while she wants the first season to be a smash hit, she also doesn’t want to put her proverbial eggs all in one basket. “I’ve [mapped out stories] for seven seasons,” said Hissrich. “Right now it’s just about, ‘how do you set up stories that really capture audiences for years at a time?'”
The worst thing we could do is put all of our energies just into season one, and not be thinking about where these characters can grow to.”
While Hissrich does mention that she has stories for seven seasons mapped out, that by no means suggests that these stories are set in stone. There are of course numerous consistencies to be observed in relation to the show’s original source material, though if viewers are leaning more towards certain characters and providing ample feedback, anything can change. At least we won’t have to wait much longer for the first season to finally get here.
The first season of The Witcher is slated to release on Netflix on December 20, 2019.
