In an interview with The Wrap, The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said that the upcoming Netflix adaptation will only be adapting the fantasy novels by author Andrzej Sapkowski for their series, not the video games from CD Projekt Red. That will still be the case even if the show moves past the story laid out in the novels.

She said: “Extreme long vision is no, we will not start adapting the games. I can only attack one season at a time, I’m so excited for this one, the rest kind of makes my mind explode right now. If someone says ‘what happens in Season 7,’ sure I have thoughts. Fingers crossed, we get there.

The series stars Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, Jodhi May, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Adam Levy, MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, Emma Appleton, Eamon Farren, Joey Batey, Lars Mikkelsen, Royce Pierreson, Maciej Musiał, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte and Anna Shaffer. It will debut later this year.
