Lauren S. Hissrich Talks Netflix’s ‘The Witcher’, Teases End of Season 1

Showrunner and head writer Lauren S. Hissrich is doing a pretty admirable job of keeping Netflix’s The Witcher series updates rolling via her Twitter account. Her latest update focuses on the writers room, which she says has been going for 10 weeks at the time of her post.

If you’ll recall, Hissrich’s script is being adapted for a Netflix series, based on the original The Witcher novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, which the CD Projekt Red videogames are based on. She’s been fairly active on twitter, combating the slew of not-so-thrilled fans of the material who have concerns.

After a West Wing reunion dinner with some notable friends fanned the reboot/revisit flames, Hissrich continued her update of The Witcher status of the show thus far from the writer’s room, touching on where the first season is headed, HOW they’re honoring the source material, and the current ending idea:

Still no word yet on casting, but we’ve got a pretty good idea that the series may hit sometime in 2020, with a possible eight-episode order.

We’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything about Netflix’s The Witcher.
