‘The Witcher’ Season Two Has Officially Wrapped Filming.
It has been well over a year since the first season of ‘The Witcher’ premiered on Netflix. Filming for the second season began at the beginning. Unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic brought production to a quick halt. Eventually, scheduling conflicts soon became an issue and several positive COVID cases pushed production back even further. However, fans finally have the good news they were waiting for. Thankfully, after 158 days of filming, season two of ‘The Witcher’ has wrapped production.
Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich announced the completion of filming with the release of a behind-the-scenes video. Filming took place in 15 different locations and consisted of 89 cast members. Similarly, 1200 crew members also worked tirelessly on the production, all while maintaining proper COVID-19 protocol.
Henry Cavil will return as Geralt of Rivia and the story will take place in the aftermath of the season one finale. Consequently, Yennifer is presumed dead after the Battle of Sodden and after finally reuniting with Princess Cirilla, Geralt is tasked with protecting her. However, with no place seeming safe, he chooses to return to his childhood home of Kaer Morhen.
Actor Kim Bodnia will portray the Witcher’s mentor and friend, Vesemir. In addition to Vesemir, actors Yasen Atour and Paul Bullion will be introduced as Coën and Lambert, fellow Witchers to Geralt. Unfortunately, no release date for season two of ‘The Witcher’ has been provided. Thankfully, with this announcement, fans could expect a trailer for the upcoming season to drop relatively soon.
