In The Witcher, you have entered a new world. Since its release on Netflix in December 2019, the hit fantasy series based on the books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski has enthralled viewers. The fifth season of The Witcher will feature brand-new protagonists, exciting new storylines, and an expanded look at the world and its inhabitants.
The Witcher will be one of the most talked-about shows of 2021, thanks to its stellar cast, breathtaking visuals, and engaging plot. Come with us as we investigate the White Wolf, Geralt of Rivia, and the secrets of the witchers on the Continent.

The Witcher Seasons 4 and 5 May Be Produced Together
According to RI’s sources, the production team behind The Witcher is now making plans to film seasons 4 and 5 simultaneously. In May, Steven Surjik, the show’s director, announced that the writers and producers of The Witcher have already “planned out” season 4.
Considering the service’s track record of canceling shows at will, the fact that such ambitious ideas are even being considered for The Witcher is telling. As there has been no official announcement yet, we need to take this with the appropriate amount of salt; nonetheless, given RI’s history with scoops like these, the likelihood that this is accurate is relatively high.
If so, developing The Witcher would be a massive undertaking. Season 3 production started in early April and wrapped up roughly six months later. Two seasons’ worth of filming at once could take up to a year to complete, though this could be divided into chunks to avoid burning out the cast and crew. The three seasons of Vikings: Valhalla were shot in quick succession, and the final two episodes of Breaking Bad and Ozark were shot simultaneously, so it’s not impossible.
Will the Witcher End With Season 5?
When a show’s final seasons are quickly followed by more of the same, it’s usually a hint that the show is winding down. In many ways, it would make the most sense for The Witcher to conclude after its fifth season. Season 3 is now adapting Andrzej Sapkowski‘s The Time of Contempt, with elements from other literature thrown in here and there. Since that book contains an extensive set piece that completely alters the path of everything that comes after, it is often considered one of the series’ high points.
However, the three subsequent Witcher novels (Baptism of Fire, The Tower of Swallows, and The Lady of the Lake) are less linear in their progression than The Time of Contempt. Suffice it to say that most of the events in the last three books involve Geralt and his gang of friends (collectively referred to as the Hansa) embarking on a quest to find another character.
Although there is a lot of interesting material, the plot of the three novels essentially amounts to Geralt’s journey through a single, drawn-out chapter. In contrast, Yennefer is rarely seen on film. We have great moments with her, but her whereabouts are seldom revealed.
But Ciri has a rather significant trip ahead of her. Combining the two volumes makes sense because some of Citi’s voyage in The Tower of Swallows co-occurs in Geralt’s quest in Baptism of Fire. The crew may decide to wrap up the series by cramming the final three Witcher books into two seasons and calling it quits there. It’d be effective.
