The Witcher Season 3 Updates: Netflix renewed The Witcher even before the first season premiered in December 2019. The streamer was well aware that it had an epic jewel on its hands, and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hiissrich was ready to go the distance. She announced shortly after Season 1 released that she had planned out seven seasons for the show.
No, you don’t want to get ahead of yourself while starting a new series, but you do want to be ready if the occasion arises. However, just because you create a plan early on doesn’t mean you have to keep to it. Things change, and while working on the show, one could discover new promising paths to explore that they hadn’t considered previously.
With Season 2 of The Witcher now accessible on Netflix, I had the opportunity to speak with Hissrich about the initial seven-season plan. She began with a laugh:

The one aspect of Hiss rich’s approach to the Witcher series that has remained consistent since the beginning is her devotion to the source material.
hiss rich underlined the significance of not committing herself into the one book each season model, in addition to being flexible to changing that seven-year plan to the rising source material. Season 2 is an adaptation of Blood of Elves, for example, but hiss rich will add one major tale from that book into Season 3.
