The Witcher’s been a pretty huge hit for Netflix these last few week, and it looks like it’ll have a very long run on the streaming platform.
The new show, which is based on a series of books by Andrzej Sapkowski and they also took some elements from Projekt CD Red’s video games, has proven to be quite popular with fans.
People have already claimed that Henry Cavill was the perfect choice to play the show’s lead, Geralt of Rivia.
Geralt is a rather gruff individual known as a Witcher who go around the land hunting for and killing monsters, but for some reason they are hated by normal folk.
Anyway, The Witcher’s showrunner, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich previously revealed that she’s planning for seven seasons of the Netflix show.
That said, she recently revealed she could write a lot more than just seven and thinks the show could be extended beyond seven seasons.

Here’s what Lauren told Collider when they asked her how many seasons of The Witcher she could write.
I’m sure, at some point, that I said I could write seven seasons. But I’m also sure that I said I could write 20 seasons. I will continue writing this series, as long as it makes sense to write this series. That means taking, organically, from the books and allowing story to flow, but then also allowing the story to end when it needs to end.
More than seven seasons is literally unheard of nowadays, especially for a Netflix TV show, so it would be interesting to see whether they do get to that number to start off with.
I would love to see more seasons of this show and have the world fully developed. That said, I doubt they’ll be able to get to that point because Netflix does like to cancel shows before their time.
