Henry Cavill, Star of ‘The Witcher,’ Says That He’s Committed to Show’s Seven-Year Strategy
Henry Cavill indicated that he is committed to The Witcher for the long-haul and willing to see the seven-year-old plan for the fantasy Netflixshow through to its end.
Lauren S. Hissrich, The Witcher’s showrunner, confirmed in 2019 that she has the first seven seasons mapped out.
She explained that she had “mapped out stories for seven seasons.” It’s now about “How do you create stories that capture viewers for years?” We should not put all our efforts into the first season and forget about what these characters can do in future seasons.
It is not clear if the show will continue beyond its seventh season. Or which book from Andrzej Sapkowski’s original Witcher novels it would. We’re not getting ahead of ourself. The Witcher has yet to hit Netflix. It’s still nice to know Cavill is with us… but there’s one condition: The stories must continue to honor the source material.
Cavill stated The Hollywood Reporter his belief that The Witcher would continue for seven seasons. He added, “As long we can continue telling great stories that honor Sapkowski’s work,”
