After facing delays with anticipation rising, The Witcher has resumed filming for its second season!
Production on the Netflix series kicked off back in January but was shut down in March because of the coronavirus pandemic. It was then announced that they will continue filming on August 17, which is close to the initial filming end date and would continue on into 2021. However, it looks like the cast and crew are ahead of schedule.
Stephen Surjik, who is set to direct the first two episodes of The Witcher Season 2, took to Instagram to confirm that production has resumed, with social distancing measures in place, of course. The photo shows their "new COVID communication system," which reduces close contact among the crew. You can check it out below!
While this is exciting news for fans of The Witcher, this also provides an insight into what productions would like in the future. Hopefully, the cast and crew manage to stay safe during filming.
As for what the second season entails is still shrouded in mystery, but it is likely to explore Ciri, Geralt, and Yennefer's dynamic as they go along adventures. In addition, showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich has teased new characters to appear in the upcoming season as well.
The Witcher Season 2 is set for release sometime in 2021.
