Season Two Of Netflix's The Witcher Will Begin Filming This Month

Season Two Of Netflix's The Witcher Will Begin Filming This Month

Netflix series The Witcher was a huge success upon its release in December, and a second season is already underway with production beginning this month ahead of a 2021 release date.

While the first series was only released at the end of 2019, it has already been watched in more than 76 million Netflix households - making it the most successful first season ever.

Fans of the show were delighted to hear a season two was on the way, but will have to patiently wait to get their fill of Henry Cavill.

Filming officially kicks off on 17 February, and will take place over five and half months, spanning at least four key locations in Scotland, England, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

The UK is where most of the action is predicted to take place, including the beautiful Isle of Skye in Scotland as the main location.

With season two's production phase rapidly creeping up, some of The Witcher's stars have begun to tease their return to the show, much to the delight of fans. MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Royce Pierreson and the main man himself, Henry Cavill, have all confirmed they will return for the next outing.

The new series has caught the interest of some big names in the acting world, including Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju, who plays Tormund Giantsbane. While Netflix and Kristofer have yet to confirm his involvement, fans have already began to speculate as to which character he could play.

Another big acting talent to show interest is Graham McTavish from Starz series Outlander, and with a leaked audition tape doing the rounds, this is more likely to be true.

Again, we're still waiting on an official announcement to state that the Scottish actor has taken the part, but fans are delighted at the prospect of the actor joining the show.

And for those keen viewers who have found the main title song 'Toss a Coin to Your Witcher' permanently stuck in their heads, Netflix has finally dropped the show's original soundtrack to buy and download. The soundtrack includes the viral hit as well as over 50 other tracks.

So while keen fans can keep searching for clues of season two and its storyline, there's still at least a year to go until the new season hits TV screens.
