The Witcher Season Two Has Finished Filming

The second series of Netflix's hugely popular The Witcher has finished filming.

The show, which features Henry Cavill as the titular witcher, Geralt of Rivia, has taken a while to complete after Cavill sustained an injury and Covid-19 struck, but after a year, it's finally done.

The news was revealed yesterday (31 March) by one of the show's hair and make-up specialists, who shared an Instagram story featuring a corkboard with a number of pins stuck into it.

Whatever the significance of that was, Jacqueline Rathore then overlaid text that said: "We are wrapped on Witcher 2!!

"Only a takeaway menu left on the board."

She then added in a follow-up Insta story: "Actually that's a lie. Tomorrow [1 April] is official wrap but WE ARE DONE."

They got cracking on the second series not too long after the first series crashed onto Netflix to great excitement.

However, like everything else in the world, things ground to a halt when the coronavirus pandemic made things impossible.

Back in August, they managed to get the green light to start shooting once more, and in November Cavill announced filming was to move to a studio ahead of the second lockdown in England, where filming was taking place.

After a week of that, the production had to shut down again after an outbreak on set and multiple positive Covid-19 tests ground things to a halt.

It's been a bumpy road, to say the least.

However, there's a lot to look forward to.

Alongside Cavill and the returning Anya Chalotra - who plays Yennefer of Vengerberg - there have been some significant new additions to the cast.

Bridgerton star Adjoa Andoh will play Nenneke, who features in Andrzej Sapkowski's book series as a priestess, and Cassie Clare, Liz Carr, Graham McTavish, Kevin Doyle, and Simon Callow are also signed on for the second outing.

We last saw Geralt taking Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) to his home of Kaer Morhen in order to keep her safe.

How he'll do that, and what else will happen outside the walls of Geralt's home as the other forces within the world continue to battle among themselves, is yet to be revealed.

We'll just have to wait and see.

There's no announced date for the release of season two of The Witcher just yet, but it is also thought Netflix will announce season three before too long.

As well as that, a six-part prequel series called The Witcher: Blood Origin is in production right now, so there's plenty for fans to get excited about.
