Which is to say, the second season will be more 'intense' than the initial eight episode run that hit screens last Friday.
Given that one enthralled fan has already said the show "makes Game of Thrones look like two drunks fighting" they're definitely going to ramp it up a notch, then.
In an interview with Digital Spy, Schmidt Hissrich said: "What I would say is that season 1 is very much about building blocks,
"It's about constructing the world, and setting up these characters, and putting them on paths, and knocking those dominoes over."
She went on to say: "When you get to season 2, all of those things start to come to play, which is that characters start meeting each other - sometimes getting along, sometimes not."
"All those things that we set up - Geralt and Yennefer; Geralt and Ciri; Yennefer and Ciri; all of the different kingdoms that you just barely hear about in season one, start rising to the surface in season 2.
"So the storytelling is a little more intense in a way, and maybe a little more focused and driven in the journeys that we're telling in season 2."
If you're completely unaware of The Witcher, it's based on a series of books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski and stars the Man of Steel himself, Henry Cavill.
Cavill plays a solitary monster hunter called Geralt of Rivia, who traverses an area called The Continent looking for beasties to do battle with.
Whilst the initial reviews have been a mixed bag, with some critics giving it an absolute panning, the fans - the people who actually matter, when you think about it - have been quick to praise the show.
Particular recognition has been saved for the fight scenes, which are expertly choreographed and visually very impressive.
One person commented: "I have watched the first two episodes and I can say this : - the best sword fighting scene I have ever seen. - I have laughed and I have cried (twice already).
"Don't be anxious, you have done a wonderful job. This show has a soul of its own. Can't wait to savour the rest."
The entire first season of The Witcher is available to stream on Netflix now.
