The Witcher Season 2 Production Halted Due To Positive COVID-19 Cases
As most major film and television productions were halted during the first months of the pandemic, one of the first major projects to return to filming back in August was Netflix original series The Witcher. With several images showing the main characters’ season 2 looks released since then, it seemed that filming was running smoothly. However, it appears that The Witcher season 2 production has now halted due to several crew members receiving positive COVID-19 tests.
Deadline has reported on The Witcher season 2 production being halted due to several positive COVID-19 cases. While the identities of the four cast/crew members that tested positive for the coronavirus were not revealed, it was indicated by sources that none of the main core cast members were the ones to test positive. Filming that was taking place at Arborfeld Studios near London has stopped and will resume once the studio deems it safe to return to filming.
This is, of course, the second major delay for The Witcher season 2 production, after filming stopped back in March when cast member Kristofer Hivju was one of the first known celebrities to have tested positive for COVID-19. There is no set date yet for when production will resume, but it is expected that the standard 14-day quarantine procedure will be followed to some extent.
Season 2 of The Witcher is still set to be released some time in 2021. We here at DFTG hope the four infected cast/crew members recover quickly, and that the rest of the production team is safe before and after filming resumes. If only COVID could be defeated with a silver sword.
