image for ‘The Witcher’ Showrunner Says Netflix Series Will Never Adapt the Video Games

Netflix’s “The Witcher” is best known in the U.S. for the series of role playing video games by CD Projekt Red rather than the fantasy novels by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski that inspired the games.

But if the show ever moves past the story laid out in the books like “Game of Thrones” did, Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich says fans should definitely not expect it to mine the games for material.

“Extreme long vision is no, we will not start adapting the games,” Hissrich told TheWrap during a press round table at San Diego Comic-Con 2019.

“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.

So Hissrich is saying that regardless of whether “The Witcher” ever makes it past the stories told in the books, they won’t use the games as source material for further stories.
