My1sttoday: Netflix’s The Witcher season 2 wraps filming.
It’s a wrap. More than a year since it started filming, the anticipated second season of Netflix’s hit fantasy epic The Witcher has finally wrapped production in the UK.
The Witcher premiered on Netflix in 2019. Starring Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, the first season was well-received by fans and critics, prompting a second season renewal as well as two spinoff series. The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is an animated series focusing on the origin of Geralt’s mentor, Vesemir. The Witcher: Blood Origin will be a live-action prequel series set 1200 years before the series’s events.
The behind-the-scenes video is hosted by Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who took some time to explain exactly how big and complicated the production was this time around. The crew of over 1,200 people and 89 cast members spent 158 days shooting, according to Hissrich. On top of that, there were sometimes as many as two or three camera crews shooting at the same time. Of course, since this is The Witcher, that means many of the scenes were filmed outside and often in some very cold weather.
In a tweet announcing the great news, Netflix told everyone that the White Wolf awaits fans back on The Continent. Of course, it would not be complete without a photo of a satisfied Cavill to get the fans hyped –that injury definitely healed nicely.
This tweet follows several sources that had more or less confirmed that Season 2 of The Witcher was done.
Hair and makeup artist Jacqueline Rathore was one of them. She had shared an Instagram story showing that decks had been cleared. The filming was apparently completed as of March 31, so now we will just have to wait and wonder when Geralt will appear on our screens yet again.
