Netflix Shares First Pictures Of Henry Cavill In The Witcher Season Two

Netflix has released the first pictures that show Henry Cavill back in the armour of Geralt of Rivia ahead of season two of The Witcher.

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.

More grunting, monsters, and bloodshed, you'd have to imagine.

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."

Then, you-know-what took hold of everything.

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

Despite everything being different now, spirits appear to be high amongst the participants in the production.

Cavill tweeted: "Oh and for those who may be worrying. All of us are cleared and bubbled. We get tested twice a week up here in Kaer Morhen!"

Director Stephen D Surjik also later shared a picture of himself an Hissrich 'learning to social distance'.

Of his colleague, he added: "First day back after mid spring lock down on Witcher S2. Learning to social distance with my show runner /Exec producer, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich,

"She can conjure narrative and character with a muscular control like the great Houdini."

Hmm, there's clearly lots to look forward to as the filming goes forward. We'll just have to wait and see what they manage to conjure up for us.

It'll be more gore, monsters, and grunting, won't it? That's no bad thing, mind.
