Speaking with The Wrap, Lauren shared that she hoped to tell author Andrzej Sapkowski‘s complete story.

“I have always said that I want to end our stories at the same place that Andrzej Sapkowski ended his,” she shared. “I just don’t feel the need for us to keep creating stories after his intentional end. The funny thing is, of course, since we have been working on the series, he’s actually released two new books. We’re trying to be a little flexible with it.”

As there are five books in the novel series, it’s suggested that there is one book per season for a total of five seasons. Although, Andrezej has also published additional material, too.

“I’ve always said that I will write the show as long as there is an interest in the show. Right now, that interest seems to be great. But some of that also is through some of the additional universe that we’re expanding,” Lauren added. “So through the anime films, or through the spinoff that just finished production, those are ways for us to continue telling Sapkowski’s stories without taking the attention away from the main storytelling of the mothership.”
