‘The Witcher’ on Netflix already has stories for 7 seasons mapped out

The team behind the upcoming Netflix fantasy series The Witcher has repeatedly brushed off comparisons to HBO’s Game of Thrones, which is understandable, considering both the unrealistic expectations that they might give rise to, as well as the unwanted connection to the critically reviled final season of the HBO series.
