The Witcher Season 2 Production Wraps
Filming a series for television is already a difficult job for those involved without the added pressure of a global pandemic. However after having to pause production several times due to the Coronavirus outbreak and an unfortunate accident sustained by the series lead Henry Cavill, The Witcher series two has officially finished filming.
Filming Delayed Due To The Virus.
Lauren Schmidt, writer and producer of the Netflix series, confirmed on social media that The Witcher season 2 is complete, writing on Instagram: ‘That’s a wrap! – We did it. Season Two is complete! So grateful for this incredible crew and cast, for getting us over the finish line. See you later in 2021!’. The post attached to this caption is an exciting one for fans as it is a short behind the scenes video describing life on set over the past year. As a viewer, I could feel the accomplishment and pride radiating from the screen, as all of their hard work has finally drawn to a close and the premier is insight.
What Can We Expect In The Witcher Season 2?
As confirmed in previous articles and posts online over the past year or so we can be certain that Henry Cavill (Geralt of Rivia), Freya Allan (Ciri) and Anya Chalotra (Yennefer) are due to reprise their roles, among many others including Mimi Ndiweni as Fringilla and a list of new actors. If you want to read more about what season two will have to offer, see this interview Lauren gave to Variety.
If you’re in need of a swift series one recap without having to re-watch the entire series one from beginning to end (Unless you want to, of course, I will not judge) take a look at this YouTube video IGN posted. This video of course will contain spoilers who have yet to watch series one.
When can we expect to see The Witcher Season 2 on Netflix?
As implied by several outlets and Lauren Schmidt’s post online, we can definitely expect The Witcher to be on our screens later this year as post-production begins to add the finishing touches. In the meantime; Netflix is sure to release a trailer or two to get you all good and hyped for Season Two.
As an added note for fans; Lauren Schmidt is reportedly working on two other Witcher related projects including The Witcher: Blood Origin, a mini-series set over 1000 years before the events in The Witcher series, and currently in its pre-production stages. Lauren is also working on an animated movie The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf which is a spin-off to the Netflix series and currently filming.
