158 days since production started, THE WITCHER has wrapped principal photography on Season 2.
Spanning 15 UK locations with 89 cast members, approximately 1,200 crew members, and a whole lot of new monsters, the road to wrap has been almost as epic as the series itself.
Today, Netflix released a very special wrap asset from the set, capturing the excitement among the cast and crew – led by showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich – to have completed filming on this highly anticipated next installment of THE WITCHER.
THE WITCHER Season 2 – coming in 2021.
Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, THE WITCHER is an epic tale of fate and family. The story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified.
Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.
