‘The Witcher’ Set Photos Show Off Netflix’s Safety Measures

It seems like Netflix is taking every precaution with production on 'The Witcher'.

The Witcher Henry Cavill Coronavirus Netflix

New photos from Netflix’s The Witcher reveal how the streaming service is protecting cast and crew from the ongoing pandemic.

After production on Henry Cavill’s The Witcher was stalled due to the ongoing pandemic, work has finally resumed in the United Kingdom. New set photos from showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich show off how Netflix has implemented safety measures so the cast and crew can all work safely without potentially catching the virus. Cavill himself recently opened up about the criticisms of the show, explaining that they help him get the character closer to the original books.

Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich revealed the new set photos from Netflix’s The Witcher with an adorable anecdote. She explained that when answering a video call from her son, he didn’t know it was her because of the face shield and mask she was wearing on set. Hopefully with these preventative measures in place, the series will be able to continue production without a hitch and The Witcher will arrive on the streaming service sooner rather than later. The second photo shows the showrunner watching a monitor with director Stephen D. Surjik with a screen in between the pair. Take a look at the set photos below.

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.
