Season 2 of The Witcher is still four months away from arriving to Netflix, and fans of the series want to know if there will be more of the main series coming. As of right now, the answer is unknown, but recent partnership with showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and Netflix makes The Witcher a good horse to bet on--no offense, Roach.

During the TCA summer press tour, Hissrich was asked if there was a Season 3 of Witcher coming. "There has been no formal renewal," she said. "In fact, right now my focus is on Season 2. We have this airdate now; we are going to launch on December 17. There is still a lot of work to be done in post production. So I'm 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."

Earlier in the day, Netflix announced a new creative partnership between Hissrich and Netflix where she will write and produce scripted series content for the streaming service. She'll be continuing work on The Witcher, along with serving as executive producer on The Witcher: Blood Origin and The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.

"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," Hissrich said 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."

While The Witcher has yet to be announced for Season 3, this new partnership with the mind of the person creating a larger Witcher universe at Netflix is very promising for the future of the main series. It's only a matter of time before Netflix greenlights the next season.
