'The Witcher' Showrunner Says Season Two Won't Be As Confusing as The First

The Witcher is one of Netflix’s most popular series and the showrunner is teasing what’s ahead for season two.

Lauren Schmidt Hissrich spoke with The Wrap about the upcoming episodes and revealed that the new season won’t be as confusing as the first might have been for some.

“Obviously, it was one of the most controversial parts of Season 1 and I didn’t expect it to be as controversial as it was,” she shared about the multiple timelines. “But it’s something I still stand behind, in terms of storytelling…”

She continued, “What’s great though is [the characters] have intersected now. So what we’ll see in Season 2 is that all of our characters are existing on the same timeline. What that allows us to do storywise though is to play with time in slightly different ways. We get to do flashbacks, we get to do flash-forwards, we get to actually integrate time in a completely different way that we weren’t able to do in Season 1.”

Lauren adds that in the new season we’ll be getting new Witchers.

“Probably my favorite additions for Season 2 are the new witchers,” she says. “Really, in Season 1, we got to know Geralt and he’s our prime example of a witcher. And then there is one other witcher, Remus, who we meet in Episode 103, who quickly dies. So it was, for us really, about getting Geralt back to his roots and sort of learning where he came from and what his story is and what his sense of family is.”

The Witcher was so popular that it sparked Netflix to release “Toss A Coin To Your Witcher” as a single!
