Netflix has just confirmed the wrapping up of filming for the second season of the hit show “The Witcher.” The production for season 2 resumed in August 2020 after being paused for few months due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Series also hit a roadblock when Henry Cavill got injured during the filming in December last year.
“It is hard to believe, it has been over a year since we kicked off season 2 in typical witcher fashion in freezing cold forest in the middle of the night,” said “The Witcher” showrunner and executive producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. “Since then we have shot for 158 days with at least one unit, sometimes two, sometimes three, all while decked out in face shields and masks and slathered in hand sanitizer. We shot in 15 locations, with 89 cast members and over 1200 different crew members. we cannot wait to show you what Geralt, and Ciri, and Yennefer, and Jaskier, and all of your favorites have been up to since we left them at the battle of Sodden hill.”
Netflix is probably saving the best for the last and that's why season 2 of the hit series is likely to premiere during Christmas this year on Netflix.
The official Twitter account of “The Witcher” also posted a video of showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, along with confirming the wrap.

Returning cast for season 2 includes Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, and Anya Chalotra, while new cast members include Adjoa Andoh as Nenneke, Cassie Clare as Phillippa Eilhart, Liz Carr as Fenn, Graham McTavish as Dijkstra, Kevin Doyle as Ba’lian, Simon Callow as Codringher, Chris Fulton as Rience.
Netflix has already revealed the logline for the series which says “Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans, and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.”
“The Witcher” was a huge success for Netflix with some 76 million homes watching the first season. Based on the bestselling book series by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, Henry Cavill stars in the series which has previously been adapted into a hit video game franchise.
