Lauren S. Hissrich says she is ready for more than seven seasons of The Witcher.
We are ten days away from the highly anticipated debut of 'The Witcher' on Netflix, and there is a lot riding on the show. Netflix cannot afford a dud, not like 'The Witcher' will be one, but its launch needs to be perfect for the streaming giant, which lost customers for the first time since they started making original series.
The streaming war is heating up, and Disney+ is looking to get a strong footing in the streaming business along with Apple TV+, which made a lot of waves with the highly expensive post-apocalyptic show 'SEE.' The series was not a critical darling, but the fans were clear as to their love for the show.

Netflix needs the same response for their show 'The Witcher,' but they also do not have the luxury of the story is original. SEE was a original story, which is not the case for 'The Witcher.' Based on seven books and three games, Andrzej Sapkowski and CD Projekt Red published books and games already put a perception of the story in fan’s minds, so they need the launch of 'The Witcher' to be perfect.
But the word around the internet is the show is amazing; some people were allowed to see the first episode of the series, and the reviews make it clear the streaming service is holding a winning hand. The swordplay in the series was praised along with the action, which is what the fans wanted to see in the first place.

The hate from the beginning of the year is gone, and so are the qualms about the hiring of various actors in the role they are playing. Now the focus shifts to 20 December 2019 when, after a long wait, people will be able to see 'The Witcher' live-action TV show.
Netflix is so confident on the source material the streaming service already green light the second season of 'The Witcher.' Netflix plays I cautious when it comes to green lighting further seasons of their shows, but in the case of 'The Witcher,' they were quick to give a sense of future for the show.
But the series creator is not thinking small when it comes to 'The Witcher'; she’s got big dreams and storyline, which she thinks will last seven seasons and maybe even 20 if she is allowed o do the work. Lauren S. Hissich said, “It's funny because I said in an interview that I could write seven seasons. I also said I'm sure later that day I could write twenty seasons if given the opportunity. I could keep writing the show for a very long time. As long as people are interested in it and as long the source material is there to organically build from.”
Season 1 is still not available to the public, and season 2 is still to be filmed, but the creator of the show is already dreaming of something beyond 2025. 'The Witcher' is rich in the source material, and even if the show probably does not follow the book to book adaptations for seasons, we think there is enough material to make a seven seasons, but 20 is stretching the story too thin, past the point of breaking.
