Season one of The Witcher has officially wrapped, as reported by the team here at Redanian Intelligence. On May 29, cast and crew took to social media from the courtyard at Brody Studio to celebrate a major milestone in the production of Netflix’s The Witcher series. Filming, including reshoots, is over until the whole thing begins again for season two (rumored to begin filming early 2020). While a bulk of the cast and crew celebrated wrapping in April, this seems to be the final wrap party for season one.
Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich confirmed the hard-earned milestone on her Instagram (with an interestingly wolf-themed backdrop that might just be custom made for The Witcher), saying: “And that’s a wrap on season one! So thrilled, so proud, so tired.” We can imagine that after the recent all-nighters and overtime shoots, this is a bittersweet (but more sweet than bitter) moment for the crew.
Earlier in the day, a member of the crew posted on his Instagram that the final day of shooting lasted from eight in the morning to beyond eleven at night. After enduring that pouring rain, well into overtime… this crew deserves to turn up and celebrate all the massive effort they’ve put into making season one of The Witcher a success.
Alongside posts from happy party-goers dancing it up was our clearest look at The Witcher’s “W” logo yet. The circular wolf symbol and overlapping W’s are consistent with earlier reports from set showcasing the logo. All that remains to be seen is if the design is used for the series in an official capacity. Throughout production, “WW” could be seen on set to denote filming of the series nearby. It is speculated that “WW” refers to “White Wolf”, a possible working title for the series used only during production to internally refer to the series. Seeing as this logo references this “WW” motif, there’s a good chance it’s unofficial and just for use during production.
This officially marks the end of our time following filming, seeing who’s on set and where they’re shooting next. It’s been a privilege, and we cannot wait to bring you more scoops as other phases of production kick into gear. Keep an eye on this space.
