Netflix has resumed production on the second season of Henry Cavill’s The Witcher in the United Kingdom.
After Netflix put work on hold for The Witcher over growing concerns regarding the pandemic a few months ago, production has finally resumed. Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich had previously shown off the safety precautions being taken for cast and crew on the Henry Cavill series, revealing the face-masks and face-shields that Netflix is providing for everyone working on set. Hissrich’s creative partner Stephen Surjik revealed the news several hours ago.
Stephen Surjik posted a shot of the new covid communication system on Netflix’s The Witcher, which helps the crew reduce close contact time on set. The director also pointed out that while everyone is a little cautious, there’s a good morale on set. The news comes soon after the announcement that the series is getting its own six-part prequel on the streaming service. Take a look at the director working on Netflix’s The Witcher below.
