The fourth season of The Witcher finally kicked off production, but the ending of this series is just around the corner. Netflix renewed the hit fantasy drama for its fifth season, while also announcing it would serve as its final chapter.

Based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s book series of the same name, The Witcher is set in the medieval world known as the Continent. It centers on Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter with superhuman abilities, who must join forces with elf sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg and Princess Ciri, who’s linked to him by destiny.

The streaming giant revealed what the show’s future has in store in a recent press release:

“It’s official, The Witcher season 4 is in production. But that’s not all, we’re already planning season 5, which will be the final season and bring this epic show to a fitting conclusion. See you on The Continent.”

Despite being a huge hit for Netflix, it’s not a shocker to see the streamer deciding to conclude this story. The Witcher went through many changes in recent years, after Henry Cavill stepped down as Geralt of Rivia and was replaced by Liam Hemsworth. He’ll make his debut in the upcoming Season 4, which is currently in production.
