Monday's Headlines | The Witcher to Restart Season 2 Production in August
The announcement from the official The Witcher social media, which you can check out below, reads less like an announcement and more like something Jaskier the bard might compose about the production once again resuming. Either way, it gets the point across, and the important facts. As for how long things might take once production restarts, it's unclear when it might finish given what we imagine must be the all-new restrictions to how they are filming.
The first eight-episode season of Netflix's The Witcher is available to stream on the platform now. As noted above, a second season is in the works, but it had paused filming due to coronavirus concerns. It has now been announced that Season 2 production will restart on August 17th. Lauren S. Hissrich serves as showrunner. It stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, and Freya Allan as Ciri. New cast members for Season 2 include Kim Bodnia (Killing Eve) as Vesemir, Yasen Atour (Young Wallender) as Coen, Agnes Bjorn as Vereena, Paul Bullion (Peaky Blinders) as Lambert, Thue Ersted Rasmussen (Fast and Furious 9) as Eskel, Aisha Fabienne Ross (The Danish Girl) as Lydia, Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones) as Nivellen, and Mecia Simson as Francesca.
