I have some news, some mead to spill:
After all the months we’ve been apart
It’s time for production to restart.
The Witcher and his bard – who’s flawless,
Will reunite on set 17 August.
Production on the hit fantasy series, which is shot at Arborfield studios in Wokingham, was shut down back in March after actor Kristofer Hivju tested positive for coronavirus.
The large set has undergone a deep clean and been properly set up to shoot under the official COVID-19 restrictions.
The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as titular monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allen as Princess Ciri and Anya Chalotra as powerful sorceress Yennefer in the mythical world of the continent.
It proved a giant hit for Netflix when it was released back in December 2019 being watched by a huge 76 million households.
Set to join the cast for season 2 alongside Hivju is Killing Eve’s Kim Bodia as Witcher trainer Vessemir along with Paul Bullion, Yasen Atour and Joel Adrian as Geralt’s fellow witchers Lambert, Coën and Hemrik.
Although nothing has been confirmed, it’s likely that the series will arrive sometime in 2021.
You can stream the entire first season of The Witcher on Netflix now.
