It has been seven months since filming of season one of The Witcher began. We have seen various blurry photos from the sets, mainly featuring the locations and occasionally actors as well. We have seen sorceresses, mages, common folk, and even Geralt, but we know next to nothing of what Nilfgaard looks like in the show. That is about to change.
We have been blessed to get in contact with a very resourceful person who provided us exciting photos from the set. Thank you very much, GotLike Locations! Go follow them on Twitter.
From what you’re about to see, we can say that this is part of the Cintra storyline where Nilfgaardian forces besiege the castle. From social media activity, we can place at least Eamon Farren there. Farren plays Cahir, a Nilfgaardian warrior who would have you believe he’s not Nilfgaardian. In the photos, we can possibly see Mimi Ndiweni as the Nilfgaardian sorceress Fringilla Vigo. There aren’t many known actresses of colour in the show who are related to this storyline, so we assume it’s her. We also have learned that Freya Allan hasn’t wrapped yet and is still in Budapest.
So let’s dive in. We present you the Nilfgaardian siege camp:
This has been the camp. After this, the crew started arriving and presumably doing tests for night shoots.
Next up we have the extras arriving on set donning pitch black armour with swords and axes.
What about actors? Well, we possibly have them as well.
And then the long night begins.
Next we have other photos:
All of this gets us very hyped for some Nilfgaardian action. Meanwhile, despite filming being in its final few weeks, we still have some exciting scoops to share with you. Stay tuned!

Those pics look very interesting and I can´t wait to see how it will look in the finished version. Also, how do you guys know that Freya Allan hasn´t wrapped yet? Does this mean that she is doing reshoots or some additional scenes? Or is there another reason behind her not being done filming yet?
Her social media suggests she was still in Budapest this week. We don’t know which scenes was she doing exactly, but at least she was doing something.
