Netflix’s The Witcher Season 2 has finally wrapped its filming in the UK. One of Netflix’s most popular, highly anticipated series, Witcher, is all set to release its second season soon. The lead Henry Cavil and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and the cast have announced the wraps for the production of Season 2 in the UK.
The filming for season 2 began in February 2020, but soon, the production was halted because of the COVID-19 pandemic. And after the exit of Thue Rasmussen and the recasting of Basil Eidenbenz for the role of Witcher Eskel, the production again resumed in August 2020. In November 2020, again few crew members on the set were tested positive for Corona Virus, so then again, the show’s production was once again halted.
The Witcher Twitter account has posted a video where the showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich stated
“We’ve shot for 158 days with at least one unit, sometimes two, three, all while decked out in face shields, face masks, and goggles and slathered in hand sanitizer. We shot in 15 locations, with 89 cast members and over 1,200 different crew members all bringing their craft to life,”
The Witcher is one of the most talked-about shows on Netflix. The response for the first season of ‘The Witcher’ has been tremendous, and the stats state more than 76 million people streamed the show.
In season 2, Henry Cavil is again all set to return as the Geralt of Rivia: The monster hunter who struggles to find his peace and kills monsters for coin. Along with him, Princess Ciri, played by Freya Allan, and Geralt’s love interest Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vegergberg, will also return in the second season, Witcher. And MyAnna Buring as Tissaia and Joey Batey as Jakier will also be going to return in the second season.
