The Witcher Season 4 Already ‘Mapped Out’ (VIDEO)
In this age of streaming services as a prominent focus of the film and television industry, they certainly seem to be the big signal-holders of where these industries will be heading. One such trend that streaming services called early was Hollywood’s eagerness to adapt video game franchises to film and TV projects. Among the first major success stories of this trend in recent years has been The Witcher series for Netflix. This proved so successful that Netflix has already greenlit a third season of the series and several spinoffs. Not only that, but it appears that The Witcher season 4 has already been “mapped out” ahead of time.
Director Stephen Surjik recently appeared on the Brigade Radio One YouTube channel to talk about their work on The Witcher series. Surjik directed the first two episodes of season 2 of the series and is slated to direct the first two episodes of next season. Season 3 has already begun filming in Eastern Europe, and while season 4 has yet to be officially greenlit by Netflix, it would seem that the creative team is expecting to have the series renewed once again. Surjik’s comments suggested as much, claiming the creative team has planned how the story’s plot will progress. As he states: “I don’t know if I’m part of that mapping program, but at least they told me that they’re mapping it out.”
While Netflix has not officially confirmed The Witcher season 4 yet, it seems like a fairly safe bet. The multimedia franchise has spawned one of the most popular series on the streaming platform, and Netflix has already shown how committed they are to the franchise based on how many Witcher spinoff projects they have greenlit. As for the creative team planning out the series that far ahead, the pandemic likely afforded the writers more time to plan out the long-term plot progressions while production was halted. That said, 2023 seems like the earliest that fans can expect season 3 of the series to air, so season 4 is quite a ways away. Until then, we’ll just have to have a long soak in the tub to wait the years away.
