15 locations, 89 cast members, and 1,200 crew members later, The Witcher has officially wrapped production on Season 2! Here’s a look behind-the-scenes at some of the excitement among the cast and crew – led by showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.
Netflix has released a new behind-the-scenes video to celebrate the end of the shooting for Season 2 of The Witcher and has announced that the new season will debut in 2021. This new video comes just hours after a new image from Henry Cavill on set was published to confirm filming is wrapped and the show can move to post-production, leading to a probable release later this year.
The new video also teases the story of the second season, which follows Geralt of Rivia (Cavill), Ciri (Freya Allan), Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), and Jaskier (Joey Batey) after we left them at the Battle of Sodden Hill at the end of Season 1. Hissrich also teases this season will move beyond “Blood of Elves,” the first book of The Witcher series that was partially adapted in the first season. This means we’ll probably get to also see some content taken from “Time of Contempt,” the second book in the series.
The Witcher Season 2 is coming in 2021, although Netflix has yet to announce when in the year we can expect the new season.
