Henry Cavill suffered a minor injury while filming on the set of The Witcher. Since the production needed to move forward, Cavill is sidelined while the production for Season 2 continues.

Cavill, who plays the main lead of the series, Geralt of Rivia, had a minor leg muscle injury on the set of the popular series. The unfortunate accident occurred when Cavill was on an assault course at the Arborfield Studios, which is just west of London. At that time, he was wearing a safety harness, working above 20 feet above the ground.


The actor's injury wasn't bad enough to require an ambulance. However, the injury has messed up his filming schedule as he cannot walk properly. Cavill has to wear heavy armor in his scenes. It would be impossible to do with his injury.

Meanwhile, as the actor is recovering from his injury, the actor updated his Instagram. Cavill upgraded his PC. The actor is a big gamer and proudly showed his PC build. The actor captioned the post with, "My Christmas break is creeping ever closer and I have some projects to attend to. The second one is definitely the Christmas tree..."

Due to his injury, the actor will take a long leave of absence to recover from the injury. The Deadline reported that he will still be in Season 2 but the filming of the series will continue. The reason for the undeterred production schedule is due to the production crew going on a holiday leave at the end of the month.


The popular Netflix series has experienced twice this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first suspension of production lasts until the mid-part of August. The second hiatus was in November, then began later in the same month. This led to the tightness of the production schedule and which is why it will continue to film while Cavill is healing from his injury.
