It's still to early to say whether Netflix's take on The Witcher will be a success or not, but that isn't ever going to stop studios from planning ahead. In an interview with entertainment magazine SFX (as reported by GamesRadar), showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has already mapped out seven whole seasons for the series. It sounds pretty presumptuous doesn't it? But again, this is how the industry often works.
"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," Hissrich told the publication.
The thing is, we've all seen a lot of promising shows hit the ground running only to fall off a cliff after just a few episodes. We're hoping that The Witcher is going to be good, but seven seasons? We'll have to wait and see.
