Untitled Witcher Spinoff
Relatedly, casting director Sophie Holland revealed there will only be a “short gap” between the filming of The Witcher’s fourth and fifth seasons during a recent interview with Deadline.
We’re just about to start filming on season four with Liam Hemsworth and there will be a short gap then we go straight into season five.
People Magazine reports Melanie Lynskey’s husband, Jason Ritter, “will eventually make an appearance” on Yellowjackets despite having his cameo in season two cut.
However, co-creator Ashley Lyle revealed the show’s writing staff spent “one day” working on season three before participating in the WGA strike.
Well, we had exactly one day in the #YellowJackets S3 writers’ room. It was amazing, and creatively invigorating, and so much fun, and I’m very excited to get back to it as soon as the #WGA gets a fair deal. #1u #unionstrong ✊🐝

The Last of Us
HBO’s head of drama, Francesca Orsi, also revealed to Deadline that production on the second season of The Last of Us likely won’t begin until 2025. Orsi additionally stated Craig Mazin is somehow “taking a big swing” with the Clickers moving forward.
There will be a couple of new pieces of casting, which I can’t get into. And of course, there isn’t much that we can go into on The Last of Us, given that Craig can’t really initiate in any meaningful way from a writing or casting standpoint. But he and Neil have a good sense of what it is that he’s going to be taking on. We’ll be moving the show from Calgary to Vancouver. All I can say is he’s taking a big swing from both an entertainment standpoint, related to the clickers, but also just the more nuanced, complex character dynamic between our characters, Joel, Ellie and beyond.
Star Trek: Legacy
In conversation with Comic Book, Terry Matalas stated his hypothetical follow-up series to the third season of Star Trek: Picard would be a “mix-and-match” of single episode stories and ongoing arcs.
I think it could be a mix-and-match. Again, let me be clear: there’s nothing in development. It’s just an exciting pie-in-the-sky idea. But it would mix and match. But I would love to go back to the spirit of Star Trek: The Next Generation quite a bit. This last season of Picard is not Season 8 of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It’s more Star Trek 11. It’s a movie. The characters are much closer to their cinematic versions than they are Star Trek: The Next Generation versions of their characters. I would love to go back to the spirit of Star Trek: The Next Generation as much as you can, but we’d have to see if it would be possible. Who knows?
