The Witcher Season 2 Has Resumed Filming
After much anticipation, production has resumed for the second season of The Witcher.
The next instalment to the incredible Netflix show had to be put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic and we were left in the dark about when we could expect to see the cast back together.
Stephen Surjik, who has directed two episodes of The Witcher, indicated on Instagram that filming has indeed got underway.
He wrote on the social media post: "It's T minus 3 min to ignition and lift off for our second run at Witcher S2.
"Everyone is being cautious but spirits are high. You're looking out new covid communication system, reducing close contact among crew. Thank you Matt, Kelly Lauren and Netflix."
It's even a few days earlier than Netflix indicated in June.
The official Twitter account for the show released the news that the gang would come back together on August 17 in the form of a Jaskier poem.

It said: "I'm dusting off my lute and quill/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."
We won't know for a while about a release date for season two but at least the production is getting underway.
There was so much hype and excitement for The Witcher that Netflix commissioned a second season before the first season aired on the streaming service late last year.
The show received favourable reviews, with leading man Henry Cavill receiving praise for his portrayal of Geralt of Rivia. Netflix revealed that a whopping 76 million households saw the show, which is a record for a first season on the platform.
Before the pandemic hit, the second season was slated for release in 2021 and it seems like production is still sticking to that timeline. Before then, we're still expecting Netflix's tie-in animated movie, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.
