Netflix's The Witcher Season 2 Will Resume Production In August

Movie and TV productions are slowly starting to restart after the COVID-19 pandemic caused major shutdowns across the entertainment industry. Following the news that Jurassic World: Dominion will resume shooting in London next month, the Netflix fantasy series The Witcher has also announced a restart date.

The Witcher also shoots in the UK, and in a tweet from the show’s official account, it was confirmed that production on Season 2 will resume on August 17. The tweet is written as a poem in the style of show’s bard Jaskier. Check it out below:

The new season of The Witcher was in production at Arborfield Studios, 40 miles from London, when it closed down in March. It was the first major production to be suspended in the UK, after actor Kristofer Hivju tested positive for the virus.

While The Witcher Season 2 doesn’t have a confirmed release date, showrunner Lauren Hissrich previously stated that it would appear sometime in 2021. “We don’t want to rush the product,” she said in January. “That doesn’t benefit anyone.” Hissrich has also suggested that the story of The Witcher Season 2 will be easier to follow than that of Season 1, which was spread over different timelines. “The story will be much more linear, now that the three characters’ stories have started to intersect,” she explained.

The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Eamon Farren as Cahir, and Joey Batey as Jaskier. It’s based on the book series by Andrzej Sapkowski, which in turn inspired the popular video game series.
