Netflix’s The Witcher Season 2 production has been put on hold on temporary bases after its many production unit members were tested positive for Covid-19. Season 2 of “The Witcher” is expected to be released in September 2021.
The Witcher is a Polish-American fantasy drama streaming TV series, based on the book series of novels by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, “The Witcher” follows the story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of medieval-inspired landmass know as “The Continent”, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive, and also where good and evil are not easily identified.
Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill leads the cast as “Geralt of Rivia”, alongside Wonderlust actress Anya Chalotra as Yennefer and Freya Allan as Princess Cirilla of Cintra.
According to reports by Deadline, 4 cases were confirmed on Saturday and the streamer will carry out an isolated round of testing of everyone involved in the production of the show.
Those impacted have been isolated and are not among the lead cast of the show, Deadline stated. Filming at Arborfield Studios, west of London, is due to resume once Netflix is confident that the set is fully safe.
This is not the first time filming has had to pause on the second season of the drama TV series. Back in March when actor Kristofer Hivju revealed that he had tested positive the production was paused, and that pause stretched to mid-August as the UK went into lockdown over the spring.
