The filming of the second season of The Witcher, the fantasy series based on the novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, has just ended
158 days after the start of filming, The Witcher, the fantasy series based on the Geralt of Rivia Saga, by Andrzej Sapkowski, has finished the production of the second season, which will be available in all countries where Netflix is active by the end of 2021.
Filming took place in 15 locations across the UK and involved 89 cast members and around 1,200 crew members. Impressive numbers, if we also consider the obstacles due to the health emergency during the production phase
On the last day of filming, Netflix released a special video taken from the set, which shows the enthusiasm of the cast and crew – led by showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich – at the idea of having completed the filming of the highly anticipated second chapter of The Witcher.
The video highlights attempts to be careful during filming, with the crew constantly using protective clothing and Cavill himself handing out masks to all crew members.
The Witcher: the plot of the second season
What awaits us in the new episode cycle of The Witcher? Netflix has released a short official synopsis which anticipates the key events of next season.
You can read it below:
During the course of the second season, convinced that Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) has died in the epic battle of Colle Sodden, Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) takes Ciri (Freya Allan) to the safest place he knows, his childhood home. , Kaer Morhen.
As the kings, elves, humans and demons of the Continent fight for supremacy outside her walls, Geralt of Rivia must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power within herself.
We also remember that Hissrich anticipated that this season will go beyond the events told in The blood of the elves, the first novel in the saga that was partially adapted in the first season. This means that we will probably also see some elements taken from the second volume, The Lady of the Lake.
