In case you missed it, production on The Witcher Season 2 has been put on hold after some of the crew members tested positive for COVID-19. Unfortunately, this means that the Netflix series will be delayed yet again. However, showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich has offered a hopeful update on the cast and crew's current situation.

Hissrich took to her official Twitter account with a message for The Witcher fans who have been concerned about the wellbeing of the cast and crew. Take a look at her tweet below.

"Hey, the world is turned upside down — so thanks for the love and support for our little corner of it. We Witchers are okay. The health and safety of our crew and their families come first, and we will do whatever we need to do to protect them. We'll be back soon. Xx," Hissrich wrote.


It's good to know that the producers are looking out for the cast and crew. Hopefully, the production can resume once everyone is cleared.

It was previously reported that filming on The Witcher Season 2 was immediately shut down when it was revealed that four crew members tested positive for COVID-19. The affected crew members have since been isolated while the rest of the cast and crew will have to wait until everyone is cleared. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
