After more than a year, season two of Netflix‘s The Witcher has finally wrapped production!
The news came with a behinds the scenes video featuring Henry Cavill and series showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.
Filming began back in February 2020 but was quickly shut down after the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. The production experienced further delays after they resumed filming including at least one involving an injury Cavill received in the latter part of the year.
“We’ve shot for 158 days with at least one unit, sometimes two, sometimes three,” Hissrich pointed out in the video, “all while decked out in face shields, face masks and goggles and slathered in hand sanitizer. We shot in 15 locations, with 89 cast members and over 1,200 different crew members all bringing their craft to life.”
The Witcher is based on the book series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. It centers on Geralt of Rivia (Cavill), the infamous Witcher, a supernaturally-enhanced monster hunter.
The books have famously spawned a video game franchise as well as the Netflix series. The streaming platform has also announced other spin-off projects based in the same universe.
