    yeah i gathered they would, depends on how far into the first book they go, as the will be 3 episodes of the witcher castle and with Crir staying at with Yennefer training.

    The yenn back story is a least partially based on clues from the novel.

    The actual iconic bath scene in the IP is the one with Geralt and Yenn they adapted in the first season. In it Geralt notices via his enhanced senses things about Yenn's features that point to things like her having been a hunch back and having had some other deformities that where taken care of via Magic

    I just don't get how a show that has only had 1 season can already have 2-3 spinoffs.

    If it's been deemed successful enough, there's no mystery.

    It's the demand and hype.

    iirc only blood origin has been confirmed by reputable sources.

    In this case though I think there's enough density in the books to justify the spin-offs, which isn't always the case.

    Well yess there's what 800 years of witcher's if i understand correct. the new descriptions seems to start with two elves. I also think someday the rumored witch school might happen. I wonder if they might do like the games and go forward.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to at least call it "Netflix's Witcher Universe" then? It's like saying Captain America and Thor are new spinoff of the Iron Man movies, after only the first Iron Man movie has come out.

    It’s entirely possible the licensing deal requires them to use “The Witcher” in the title for any spin-offs since that’s the established English name for the series.

    Will definitely do that. Normally I would be listening on my commute, but, well... 2020.
