The Witcher

It seems that the shooting for Season 2 of the Netflix series The Witcher has finally been completed. At least one Instagram story by Jacqueline Rathore suggests that. This is a hairstylist who has been working on the set of The Witcher for a long time and has therefore been privy to the production process.

In the story, she published a picture of a cork wall that is littered with numerous holes - probably based on at least as many notes that were there in the past few months. Meanwhile the wall is empty - apart from the flyer for a delivery service. The text "We're done with Witcher 2 !!" to read. An official confirmation from the production company has not yet been received. But in principle there is no reason why the stylist should spread a lie at this point.

Should the Instagram story be true, the very turbulent filming of the second season of The Witcher has finally come to an end. Production originally started in February 2020, but had to be interrupted due to the global corona pandemic. In August of last year, filming continued, mainly in England, before another lockdown brought everything to a standstill. Apart from Corona, there have always been a few incidents such as the injury of the actor Henry Cavill, who is known to play the main character Geralt von Rivia.

A hair and makeup artist on Netflix's The Witcher has revealed that Season 2 has wrapped filming.

Jacqueline Rathore posted an Instagram story on Wednesday, sharing a photograph of a barren corkboard with a bunch of pins tacked to it. The colorful text overlay confirmed that production had wrapped on the second season of The Witcher.

Cameras started rolling on The Witcher Season 2 back in February 2020, but production was paused shortly thereafter as Netflix paused filming on all of its films and TV shows in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. These delays prompted the shoot to be rescheduled, which resulted in Thue Rasmussen dropping out of the cast, having originally signed up to portray Eskel in Season 2.

Netflix resumed production on The Witcher Season 2 in August after being given the 'green light' to start filming again. The next significant update arrived in November when Henry Cavill revealed that filming was moving back to the studio ahead of England's second national lockdown. However, less than a week later, the production was shut down again due to multiple positive COVID-19 tests.

News of the tumultuous production wrapping comes shortly after several new cast members joined The Witcher Season 2 in roles that will likely be recognizable to fans of Andrzej Sapkowski's book saga, including Bridgerton's Adjoa Andoh as Nenneke, who appears in the novels as a priestess of Melitele, and the head of the Temple of Melitele in Ellander, just outside of the main city.

Other new cast additions for season 2 included Cassie Clare (Brave New World) in the role of Phillippa Eilhart, Liz Carr (Silent Witness) as Fenn, Graham McTavish (Outlander) as Dijkstra, Kevin Doyle (Downton Abbey) portraying Ba'lian, Simon Callow (A Room with A View) as Codringher, and Chris Fulton (Bridgerton) in the role of Rience, a major antagonist in the Witcher book series.

The show's second season will pick up with Geralt of Rivia taking Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen, where he will strive to protect Ciri from the mysterious power she possesses inside while the Continent's kings, elves, humans, and demons strive for supremacy outside the walls of the castle, located within the Kingdom of Kaedwen.

The Witcher Season 2 has no premiere date yet, though Season 3 is expected to be announced at some point. Netflix is also working on The Witcher: Blood Origin, a six-part spin-off prequel series set 1,200 years before Geralt walked the lands of the Northern Kingdoms, and The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, an anime feature film centered around Vesemir, Geralt's close friend and mentor.
