Filming Stopped On Netflix's 'The Witcher' Following Positive COVID Cases

It's no surprise to anyone at this point that productions from games, to music, to television and more have been affected by the ongoing COVID-19 situation. Delays, cancellations and reworks have all had to take place to accommodate safety measures and the possibility that people may bring COVID-19 into workplaces. Netflix's The Witcher series is no different.

Deadline has reported that season two of The Witcher has halted production after there have been several positive COVID cases reported amongst the production team. Four individuals have tested positive for the virus and Netflix is in the process of testing everyone who's part of the show to see if there have been further infections.

Once the team is certain that the set and the crew is safe, production will resume. It's said that none of the lead cast members are among those with positive results so far.

Earlier this year, The Witcher had production halted due to one of the actors - Game of Thrones veteran Kristofer Hivju - contracting COVID. This season Hivju will be playing Nivellen, a man doomed to look like a monster - we can't wait to see him come alive in the show.

That's not the only new name coming to the next season of The Witcher though. Netflix has already confirmed that Kim Bodnia is going to be playing Vesmir, Geralt's mentor and an older Witcher. You may have seen him in shows like Killing Eve and The Bridge.


If you haven't binged The Witcher season one yet, then we'd recommend it for anyone who loves fantasy or Henry Cavill, either will do. The game takes place years before The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and mixes elements from CD Projekt Red's games and the Polish books by Andrzej Sapkowski.

Hopefully, season 2 of The Witcher will be out as soon as possible. All I really want is to hear Dandelion, I mean Jaskier, sing some more tunes.
