Production will soon restart on The Witcher season two after work on the Henry Cavill series was halted due to the pandemic.
Like many other projects, work on Netflix’s The Witcher season two was disrupted by the coronavirus earlier this year, but the show’s Twitter account recently announced when work will officially begin. Most recently showrunner Lauren Hissrich teased fans with the arrival of more Witchers as the second season will explore Geralt’s history. Hopefully we’ll learn a little more about what’s to come when production restarts on the Henry Cavill series.
The Witcher‘s Twitter account brilliantly announced the production start date in the style of Geralt’s bard, Jaskier. After the poem jokingly called Joey Batey’s Jaskier “flawless”, it announced that work will begin again on August 17. The second season will include a number of new additions to the cast including Kim Bodnia as Geralt’s mentor Vesemir. Take a look at the announcement below.
I’m dusting off my lute and quill,
I have some news, some mead to spill:
After all the months we’ve been apart
It’s time for production to restart.
The Witcher and his bard – who’s flawless,
Will reunite on set 17 August.
