The long-awaited second season of the Netflix fantasy series The Witcher is less than a day away. While fans are organizing their time to binge-watch eight new episodes, showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and writers are working daily on the scripts for the upcoming Season 3 that was already confirmed by Netflix.
Two years ago, when the first season was about to premiere, Hissrich revealed that she has a plan to make seven seasons of the series. The main star Henry Cavill recently said he’s ready to along with it, so if it’s okay with Netflix, we’ll keep following the adventures of Geralt of Rivia for a long, long time in the future.
It was previously announced that the production of Season 3 will begin in early 2022. Now, Hissrich revealed that scripts are almost finished, and she teases that it will be the biggest season yet.
“This is our last week in the writers’ room. We’re almost done with the scripting phase, and it’s amazing. I’m really thrilled with how the season is shaping up because it’s based on my favorite book in the saga, which is The Time of Contempt. I feel like seasons 1 and 2 have been laying the playing field for everything huge that’s about to happen. But the creative process is now really just starting. We have the scripts, and now we’ll bring directors on, the actors back in, and really start delving in deeper and reflecting back and making sure that it’s the perfect season.” — Lauren Schmidt Hissrich for Tech Radar
