It looks like Netflix's The Witcher is getting a third series

It seems likely that Netflix's The Witcher TV show is going to have a third series.

That's according to Redanian Intelligence, which reports that the Writers Guild of America has added a third season for the critically acclaimed show to its database. Lauren Hissrich is attached as executive producer and showrunner.

The Witcher debuted in December 2019 and soon was on track to become Netflix's most-watched first series of a show to date. It was renewed for a second series in November of last year, too.

The streaming platform is keen to cash in on this success, too. Netflix has commissioned both an anime show based on The Witcher, as well as a prequel TV show set 1,200 years before the events of the existing series.

Hissrich has said in the past that she has seven series planned out for The Witcher.
