Production for The Witcher's upcoming third season has reportedly been put on pause. According to a new report, the show's lead star Henry Cavill tested positive for COVID-19. This isn't the first time that the show's filming has been halted and if you may recall, Cavill sustained a hamstring injury while production for Season 2 was ongoing.
The scoop comes from Redanian Intelligence, a fan site dedicated to all things The Witcher (via Comic Book Resources). A source close to the hit Netflix show's production reportedly confirmed that Cavill has in fact contracted the virus. This comes a few days before they were set to enter their final production month.
The site adds that following a weekend break, filming was originally supposed to resume on July 25th but it never took place. The good news is Cavill is expected to make a fast recovery from contracting the virus but there's no word yet when the filming will resume. We also don't know if it will affect the show's release which is intended to drop sometime in 2023.

The report seemingly supports the rumor about Cavill's SDCC absence. We reported yesterday that the Superman actor was in fact set to make an appearance during the DC panel to address his future as the Man of Steel. As it stands, Cavill and the crew behind The Witcher have yet to release an official statement regarding the production delay.
Seasons 1 and 2 of The Witcher are available for streaming on Netflix.
