The Witcher Netflix Series Reportedly Going Well, Multiple Seasons Planned
It has been quite the long road for Netflix’s upcoming The Witcher series TV adaptation, one punctuated with a significant amount of criticism leveled against the showrunner and the rest of the writing crew. Now that production is underway things have quieted down, though, and a new insider report has revealed that Netflix appears to be very happy with how the series is progressing, to the point where the premium streaming service company is already thinking about greenlighting multiple seasons.
The news comes by way of KC Walsh, Editor-in-Chief of Geeks WorldWide and one well known for providing knowledgeable insider intel regarding the DCEU. Per Walsh, Netflix is reportedly very happy with how The Witcher series is coming along, which is likely a reference to the currently in production first season. As such, Netflix is already considering ordering more seasons for the show, possibly even before season one hits the streaming service next year.
Sounds like @Netflix is very happy with #TheWitcher and we could see multiple seasons greenlit before season one airs or shortly after. Meaning Cavill’s schedule could be full for a while and more evidence Superman is behind him pic.twitter.com/DSnFjhAjrF

As Walsh mentions above, if Netflix were to order more season of The Witcher, actor Henry Cavill’s schedule will likely be full for quite some time, which may be the last nail in the coffin that is Cavill’s role as Superman. That isn’t to say that Cavill can’t work on multiple projects at a time, but given his unabashed love for The Witcher series, he may just prioritize one project over another. For now we’ll have to wait and see, though at least in the meantime we’ll have Thronebreaker to keep us company.
Netflix’s The Witcher is expected to air at some point in 2019.
