Lauren Hissrich, showrunner for Netflix's adaptation of The Witcher novels, recently took part in a roundtable with the press as part of San Diego Comic-Con. A reporter for The Wrap took the opportunity to ask whether the series was likely to go beyond the novels and into the territory covered by CD Projekt Red's games—which are set after them—at any point.

"Extreme long vision is no, we will not start adapting the games," Hissrich replied. "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. If someone says 'what happens in Season 7,' sure I have thoughts. Fingers crossed, we get there."

I guess that's a "no" to the unicorn scene then.

A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, and Playboy.com, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was published in 2015, he edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and actually did play every Warhammer videogame.
