During the Witcher virtual panel, it was announced that the streaming service has partnered with Lauren as part of a multi-year contract agreement to help write and produce scripted content for Netflix. Additionally, she will continue to work as showrunner and executive producer on The Witcher.
“I am so thrilled to have found my home at Netflix, and can’t wait to continue what’s been an incredibly fulfilling creative partnership,” she stated in a press release. “While my heart belongs to the Witcher franchise, I equally look forward to digging in on other exciting projects for their global audience in the years to come.”
So, does this mean Netflix is planning to develop several more seasons of the video game adaptation?
When asked by another reporter during the TCA panel if The Witcher is in pre-production for a Season 3, Lauren noted that there has been “no formal renewal” by Netflix. “In fact, right now my focus is on Season 2,” she said.
She continued, “There is still a lot of work to be done in post-production, so I am back and forth between Los Angeles and London completing that. And that is just, honestly, where all of our focus is right now because we need a great Season 2 if we have a hope of having a Season 3.”
