Earlier this year, filming on Season 2 of Netflix's The Witcher was halted during the global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, a new report claims that the production company behind The Witcher is attempting to restart production as early as August.
The report comes from Redanian Intelligence, who have been extremely well connected to The Witcher on Netflix even before it premiered in December 2019. The report states that Netflix is eyeing restarting production in the first week of August 2020, working with Aborfield Studios and in accordance with the UK's COVID-19 guidelines. There was a report last week that stated The Witcher could be one of the first projects in the UK to begin filming again, so this date of August perhaps shouldn't come as a huge surprise.
Season 2 of The Witcher first began filming earlier this year in February 2020, barely a month after premiering on Netflix in December 2019. Just a few weeks later, filming was halted due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, and there's been next to no news about the show since.
Redanian Intelligence reports that the second season of the Netflix show has about four to five months left of filming. Previously, The Witcher Season 2 was slated to debut in early 2021, but the report notes that Netflix is now aiming to launch the second season of the show in Summer 2021 instead.
Right now, there's been no comment from Netflix on the report. We'll update this article should there be any comment.
