The Witcher Netflix Series Already Has 7 Seasons Mapped Out –

November 1st, 2019

The Witcher’s first season hasn’t even debuted on Netflix yet, however, showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich apparently already has seven seasons mapped out. According to Hissrich, Netflix hasn’t renewed the show for a second season, but that hasn’t stopped the showrunner from thinking ahead. In a new interview, Hissrich revealed that it’s important to map out where the show and characters will go. In other words, as Hissrich puts it, it would be a terrible idea to entirely focus on season one with no idea where the series could go in case Netflix renews it for additional seasons.

“I’ve [mapped out stories] for seven seasons,” said Hissrich while speaking to SFX. “Right now it’s just about, ‘how do you set up stories that really capture audiences for years at a time?’ The worst thing we could do is put all of our energies just into season one, and not be thinking about where these characters can grow to.”

Of course, while Hissrich has the future of the show roughly outlined, you’d assume it’s not all set in stone. More specifically, you’d assume audience reception to certain characters, storylines, etc., would be taken into account when making additional seasons. That said, Hissrich teased that some characters may not make it out of season one, suggesting there will be plenty of drama and perhaps even some tears shed before the first season wraps.


As mentioned above, there’s been no official word of Netflix ordering additional seasons, but a report did surface earlier this year claiming that Netflix is ready to greenlight multiple seasons. As you may know, Game of Thrones ran for eight seasons, so the idea of The Witcher running for seven isn’t that crazy, especially since many are billing it as the next Game of Thrones.

The Witcher’s first season is set to go live on December 20, on Netflix and Netflix only.

Hunter Haze Straight-Smith, Toddler Stabbed In Winnipeg, To Be Taken Off Life Support – HuffPost Canada

WINNIPEG — A three-year-old boy who was stabbed multiple times while he slept in his bed was to be taken off life support on Friday.

Roxanne Moar said her nephew Hunter Haze Straight-Smith was to be removed from the machines keeping him alive at Winnipeg’s Health Sciences Centre.

She said Hunter suffered severe brain damage during the brutal attack Wednesday.

“My nephew didn’t do nothing to anyone. He was so happy and innocent,” Moar said in an online message.


People comfort each other at a vigil for Hunter Haze Straight-Smith.

Outside the hospital Friday afternoon, dozens of family friends and supporters gathered for a vigil. The boy’s mother, Clarice Smith, and other relatives hugged each other and wept during Indigenous prayers and drum songs.

“They’re very distraught,” family friend Darryl Contois said.

“I too have kids, and to see a baby laying there that did no harm to no one really broke my heart.”

Daniel Jensen, 33, was charged with attempted murder on Thursday.

Police said that, generally, a charge may be upgraded when a victim of a crime dies.

Jensen was also charged with assault for an altercation police allege occurred between him and Hunter’s mother.

Clarice Smith had been in an off-again-on-again relationship with Jensen for about six months. He is not Hunter’s father. Police have said that at the time of the attack on the boy, Jensen was under a court order not to contact the mother.

Court records show he was charged with assault with a weapon and uttering threats in July.

He was also charged this week with failure to comply with recognizance and probation orders.

A relative said Hunter’s mother had been planning to move home to Manigotagan, about 150 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.

Police believe there was an argument between Smith and Jensen at somewhere on Winnipeg’s Main Street. It was after that encounter that police allege that Jensen walked to the home where Hunter was asleep and stabbed him several times.

Family say the injuries were brutal.

Bianca Smith, another of Hunter’s aunts, said Thursday the family cannot understand why the child would have been targeted. Smith said she had met Jensen a few times but did not know him well.

Hunter was smart, mischievous and happy, she said. His mother is devastated, she added, and has stayed by the little boy’s side since he was brought to hospital.

“I have no words to describe it. Nothing like this has ever happened in the family,” the aunt said. “It’s hard, really hard, on everybody.”

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 1, 2019.

WWE SmackDown results, recap, grades: Shocking NXT invasion, Brock Lesnar quits and moves to Raw – CBS Sports

November 1st, 2019

When much of the SmackDown roster was unable to return from the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia following airplane mechanical issues, WWE was backed into a corner in how to approach the Fox-televised show this week. What followed was a masterstroke of creativity with the NXT roster invading — and dominating — SmackDown.

While WWE champion Brock Lesnar quitting SmackDown to pursue Rey Mysterio on Raw was the early headline, it was NXT dominating the SmackDown roster in every possible way that will stand as the lasting memory of a wild and unpredictable edition of SmackDown. So without further ado, let’s take a look at what went down at SmackDown from Keybank Center in Buffalo, New York.

Brock Lesnar quits to find Rey Mysterio at Raw

The WWE champion kicked off the show, entering the ring with Paul Heyman, who described Lesnar’s mood by saying, “Brock Lesnar is really, really pissed off tonight.” The entirety of Lesnar’s Crown Jewel win over Cain Velasquez was aired at the direction of Heyman, who called the win “spiritually orgasmic.” Heyman also claimed they demanded Vince McMahon deliver Mysterio to him following Mysterio’s post-match steel chair beatdown of Lesnar, but McMahon said the match could not happen due to the contracts inherent in the brand split.

“If Rey Mysterio can’t come to SmackDown for Brock Lesnar, than come this Monday,” Heyman said. “Brock Lesnar will come to Raw looking for Rey Mysterio.” Heyman then said Lesnar has quit SmackDown and will be at Raw on Monday, daring anyone in the company to try and stop him. As Heyman and Lesnar exited the arena, Triple H was shown briefly reacting before the camera showed Shawn Michaels standing by his side, foreshadowing the rest of the show’s happenings.

This all made perfect sense given “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt winning the universal championship at Crown Jewel on Thursday. Shifting Lesnar and the WWE championship to Raw puts one title on each brand, as is needed. And Lesnar vs. Mysterio is an intriguing match with good build and heat, so no complaints here. Heyman was, as usual, delivering the goods on the mic while a brooding Lesnar stood through the move. Lesnar’s “bigger than all of this” character works very well in storyline, even if it can often be a miss for fans in reality. And airing a full PPV match — even if short — was a good way to help fill time given the issues facing SmackDown tonight. Grade: B+

NXT invades and dominates SmackDown

With so much of the SmackDown roster unavailable due to travel issues, WWE creative had to get … well, creative. To accomplish this, NXT invaded SmackDown, taking out SmackDown stars in basically every segment of the show, culminating in a main event showdown between Daniel Bryan and Adam Cole for the NXT championship.

WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship — Bayley (c) def. Nikki cross via pinfall after interference from Sasha Banks. Banks got involved late at ringside, distracting Cross to set up a Bayley elbow drop, but Cross was able to kick out. Cross wasn’t able to survive the second interference from Banks, being pinned moments after being shoved off the top rope by “The Boss.” After the match ended, NXT women’s champion Shayna Baszler jumped the guardrail, throwing Banks into the ring post, laying out Cross and then putting a beating on Bayley to set the tone for the rest of the show.

In the next segment, Sami Zayn was cutting a backstage promo, discussing Baszler and Pat McAfee appearing on the show. He said that, while NXT was clearly in the arena, there could be issues if anyone from the roster stepped to him. He was then interrupted by Matt Riddle and Keith Lee, who chased him off from the interview area to the ring. Riddle hit Zayn with Bro Derek and Lee hit a second rope moonsault.

Tommaso Ciampa def. Miz via pinfall after hitting the Fairy Tale Ending. Miz TV was originally to feature Miz interviewing Wyatt, but the new champion was among those who were unable to make it to the show due to the flight issues. Miz still aired a video package covering Wyatt’s title win over Seth Rollins at Crown Jewel before addressing the night’s NXT invasion. He was then interrupted by former NXT champion Tommaso Ciampa. After trading barbs, Miz told Ciampa if he was at SmackDown to make a statement, “then make a damn statement” before throwing down a challenge for a match. Ciampa got the win, looking impressive in the process.

Daniel Bryan ran into Triple H and Shawn Michaels backstage, asking what the former D-Generation X members were doing at the show. Triple H pointed to the Survivor Series ads that ran during Crown Jewel, establishing a Raw vs. SmackDown vs. NXT theme to the upcoming event. Bryan said he was looking for a fight and challenged Triple H to a match; there was a brief tease of Michaels vs. Bryan before Triple H said NXT champion Adam Cole was also looking for a fight, leading to a main event match between Cole and Bryan for the NXT championship.

Rhea Ripley & Tegan Nox def. Fire & Desire via submission when Mandy Rose tapped to Ripley’s modified cloverleaf. Bianca Belair took out Carmella and Dana Brooke, Fire & Desire’s original opponents. Ripley and Nox then took the spot and dominated a brief match before chalking up yet another win for NXT.

NXT Championship — Adam Cole (c) def. Daniel Bryan via pinfall following the Last Shot. Triple H and Michaels were ringside for the match. As expected, this match featured fantastic action from two of the best professional wrestlers on the planet. What was unexpected — at least for some — was Cole going over completely clean to retain his championship. Cole’s win completed a clean sweep for NXT, who did not have a single moment go against them the entire show.

Following Cole’s win, the NXT roster entered the ring where Triple H said his brand had fired the first shot in a war started when Raw and SmackDown picked a fight for Survivor Series. Triple H said, to build an army, “you turn to your blood and you turn to your family.”

With WWE backed into a corner by forces outside its control, fans were treated to a show that did an amazing job of not only building to NXT’s inclusion at Survivor Series but also establishing WWE’s third brand as entirely capable of competing with — and dominating — the established “premier” brand superstar. Cole vs. Bryan is the easy in-ring highlight, but every segment in the show delivered something valuable. That’s not something that can be said for many WWE TV outings. You can’t do something like this every week, but for one week, this was something special. Grade: A+

Caterina Scorsone is pregnant! 

The Grey’s Anatomy star shared the exciting news with her 2 million Instagram followers on Friday. “Our Family’s about to get even kookier,” Caterina wrote alongside her and her family’s Addams Family-inspired photoshoot, also adding the hashtag “#pumpkinintheoven.” A fitting end to the Halloween festivities! 

Co-stars Camilla Luddington commented, “Omg this is GREAT!!!!!!!!” and Alex Blue Davis wrote, “This is amazing.” 

Caterina’s bundle of joy-to-be will join her hubby, singer-songwriter Rob Giles, and their two children, 7-year-old Eliza and 2-year-old Pippa. Since the toddler’s birth in 2016, Caterina has used her platform to advocate for those diagnosed with Down syndrome. 

“A lot of parents who find out their new baby has Down syndrome worry about what the impact of having a child with differences will be on their other kids,” she recently shared on Instagram. “They haven’t seen it modeled so they are afraid of it. I wish I could show everyone the joy and sweetness and love that has expanded and grown in our family since Pippa was born.” 

Caterina continued, “There is no book, or movie, or conversation that I could have with my older daughter that would have taught her the love and perspective that having a sister with differences has. The two of them are crazy about each other and the differences give rise to a kind of tenderness I could only have wished for between typical siblings. Pippa is truly the greatest gift I could have given her big sister and I am so deeply grateful that she chose our family to shake up and wake up with her light.”

Congratulations to the whole family on their upcoming addition!
