Henry Cavill Injured While Filming The Witcher

Henry Cavill has been injured while filming Netflix fantasy drama The Witcher, as he reportedly sustained a 'minor leg muscle injury' during production.

Deadline confirmed the news after The Sun initially reported Cavill had hurt his leg on an assault course.

The actor was luckily not seriously hurt, and although the filming schedule has been interrupted, he wasn't injured badly enough to need an ambulance.

He has been told to rest by doctors, according to reports.

An unnamed source - seems legit - told The Sun: "The filming has been hit because of what happened to Henry. He was on an assault course and injured his leg.

"He just suddenly pulled up and was clearly in a lot of pain. It wasn't clear if an object had hit his leg or it was some sort of hamstring or muscle injury.

"It wasn't bad enough to need an ambulance but it's messed up the filming schedule as he can't walk properly.

"He has to wear heavy armour in the scenes and he just wouldn't be able to do it with his leg injury.''

LADbible has contacted Netflix for comment.

Netflix recently released the first pictures that show Cavill back in the armour of Geralt of Rivia, ahead of the show's second season.

Sharing the moody looking snaps - seriously, are there any other type when it comes to Geralt of Rivia? - the official Netflix UK account tweeted: "New armour, same Witcher. Here's your first look at Henry Cavill as Geralt in @witchernetflix Season 2."

As they've mentioned, Geralt has some fancy new armour on, but other than that we've got precious little information to go off about when we'll get to have a look at the second series, or even what we can expect to see, aside from lots more grunting, monsters, and bloodshed.

So, what can we tell you about the forthcoming series?

Well, Henry Cavill is back as the titular Witcher - obviously - alongside Anya Chalotra as Yennefer and Joey Batey as Jaskier.

As for the release date, we can't tell you anything more than 'next year' really.

As with everything else in the world of film and television, The Witcher was forced to shut down production because of the coronavirus pandemic, and has only recently managed to get back up and off once again.

Speaking months ago at a Reddit AMA, showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich said: "We don't yet have a target launch date for season two past 2021."

In March, production was shut down due to the pandemic, and it wasn't until 17 August that the show could resume filming.
