The showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich, has stated that the upcoming Netflix The Witcher might contain seven seasons.
Even though The Witcher won’t be releasing for another month, December 20, the showrunner for the TV-series is confident that the series will run for seven seasons. The series has not even been confirmed for renewal from the network. But Lauren thinks they can deliver a product that is good enough for the fans.
Official synopsis for the series:
Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
Lauren spoke out in a recent interview with SFX, that she doesn’t want her time to be wasted:
“I’ve [mapped out stories] for seven seasons. 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.”
The series has Henry Cavill in the lead as Geralt of Rivia and starring Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Aretuza, and Millie Brady as Princess Renfri, with Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read as novice sorcerers.
