The Witcher Netflix show will have a short first season


 

The upcoming Netflix TV series adaptation of The Witcher will feature an eight-episode first season and possibly arrive in 2020, according to the show’s writer.

In a recent collection of tweets, series writer and executive producer Lauren S. Hissrich revealed several details about the new Netflix show, including that its first season will consist of eight hour-long episodes. Before fans could raise their concerns over the small number of episodes, Hissrich said it was the right creative decision, as “episodes can be tight, action-packed, rich in character and story, without lagging in the middle of the season.” As for when fans can see the episodes, she teased 2020 as a possible release window, but no confirmed date has been made. Both tweets can be seen below.

In addition to the season’s length and possible launch window, Hissrich also announced the filming will take place in Eastern Europe, but the cast still hasn’t been locked down for it. While the series seems to be moving along in production, she said the first season still needs to be written. Previously, Hissrich confirmed the show’s pilot episode is written, but it was unclear how much more of the show’s plot had been completed. According to another tweet, the other seven episodes “don’t exist yet.” However, as you can see below, she confirmed new writers will be working with her soon to pen the remaining episodes.

While The Witcher is well-known as a game series, the upcoming TV adaption will be based primarily on the eight novels from The Witcher Saga by Andrzej Sapkowski. The show’s production company, Platige Image, previously confirmed Sapkowski will consult with the writer’s on the first season’s overall plot, but Hissrich was announced as the showrunner in December 2017.
