It is why Netflix renewed the show and filming for the second season was already started. However, the coronavirus outbreak has halted the filming for The Witcher Season 2 and even some of the cast members were infected with the virus. Here are more details on when will the filming resume and Netflix will release The Witcher Season 2 after the COVID-19 is over.
The Witcher Season 2 Filming Updates and COVID-19 Effects
The Witcher Season 2 filming had already started in January where the first few episodes were complete. Netflix also announced a lot of new cast members including Kristofer Hivju as Nivelles. However, it was reported that Kristofer Hivju whom fans also know as Tormund Giantsbane from Game of Thrones was tested positive for Coronavirus.
It is why Netflix has to suspend the filming for The Witcher Season 2 immediately and production everywhere was halted. The COVID-19 pandemic grew worse over the entire world and Netflix halted filming for all their major shows and movies. It is expected that filming for The Witcher Season 2 will resume around July-August when the coronavirus outbreak is contained and it is safe to gather around.
The Witcher Season 2 Release Date and Trailer
The Witcher Season 2 could still release this year as half of the filming has been complete and Netflix will use the lockdown time to complete the post-production and add special effects to those episodes. It is expected that filming for the second season of The Witcher can be continued around August and it will give the makers enough time to complete the series.
Henry Cavill has also expressed how much he misses the show and can’t wait to play the Geralt of Rivia. The Witcher Season 2 release date could be set around Christmas 2020 if everything goes right.
