“I’ve always said that I want to end our stories in the same place that Andrzej Sapkowski ended his. I just don’t feel the need for us to keep creating stories after its intentional ending. The funny thing is, of course, that since we’ve been working on the series, it has released two new books. We’re trying to be a little flexible with that. “
Season 3 still does not have a release date, but without the pandemic involved, many estimate that it could arrive at the end of next year.

So we’re really letting that drive our storytelling. Season 3, for example, takes place in a very, very small timeline. It does not take long, because it is not necessary “
