Henry Cavill’s ‘The Witcher’ Season 2 Looking To Restart Production In August

The second season of Henry Cavill’s The Witcher is looking to restart production this August.

Earlier this year, Netflix made the decision to halt production on the second season of its hit fantasy series The Witcher due to concerns over the coronavirus. Now, Redanian Intelligence reports that the Henry Cavill series won’t resume production until this August.

According to Redanian Intelligence, Henry Cavill’s The Witcher season two is expected to resume filming in the first week of August 2020. A separate report from Production Weekly reveals that Netflix is planning to get cameras rolling again on August 3rd.

In March, Netflix announced that it would be conducting a deep cleaning of all of its sets for The Witcher season two after cast member Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones) tested positive for the coronavirus. Hivju revealed that he had fully recovered from the coronavirus about a month later. The streaming service paused production prior to becoming aware of Hivju’s diagnosis and adviced cast and crew members to self-quarantine for fourteen days after shutting down the series.

Here is the official synopsis for the first season of Henry Cavill’s The Witcher:

Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Aretuza, and Millie Brady as Princess Renfri, with Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read as novice sorcerers.
