Netflix pulls the plug on The Witcher: the franchise stopped in its tracks?

The steamer has reportedly decided to cut short the development of the two spin-offs in sight.

It has long been one of Netflix's most popular franchises. But The Witcher may not live very long. While the parent series was canceled by the platform – and will end with season 5 – we learn that the entire saga could be disconnected by the streamer in the process.

According to What's On Netflix, Netflix has already canceled the two spin-off series initially announced, including the spin-off The Ratsworn by Dolph Lundgren and another untitled spin-off designed for children.

Also starring Ben Radcliffe, Christelle Elwin, Fabian McCallum, Aggy K. Adams, Juliette Alexandra, Connor Crawford, Deoudone van der Merwe, Morgan Santo and Stevel Marc, the series The Rats was to bring back the characters who appeared in the season 3 finale of The Witcher, where they were presented as a group of young misfits who had fallen into a life of outlaws because of the war. The series will therefore not be made.

Netflix clearly no longer believes in The Witcherwhile Liam Hemsworth will succeed Henry Cavill in the role of Geralt of Rivia.

However, the network had bet heavily on the franchise drawn from Andrzej Sapkowski's fantasy books. Beyond the first three seasons, we have already had The Witcher: The Wolf's Nightmarean animated prequel film (2021), as well as The Witcher: Blood Origin, a prequel miniseries starring Michelle Yeoh. And we'll see by the end of the year The Witcher: Sirens Of The Dee, another animated film derived from the saga. Definitely the last spin-off before the end.
