Production for the second season of Netflix’s The Witcher resumed a month ago and so far we didn’t have any major news about what’s going on. Luckily, we were able to learn something very curious that involves Henry Cavill, Freya Allan as well as some of the newcomers of the upcoming season.
If you don’t want any spoilers for the upcoming season of The Witcher, turn back.
Redanian Intelligence has learned that the cast and crew of The Witcher is currently filming a sizeable action scene that takes place in Kaer Morhen, home of the witchers from the School of the Wolf. The scene we heard of involves Geralt, Ciri, Vesemir, Lambert, Eskel, Coën as well as several original witchers such as Hemrik played by Joel Adrian.
We don’t have any solid confirmations on who these witchers are at the moment, but we are pretty sure the following actors/stuntmen are among those portraying them: Jota Castellano, Chuey Okoye, Max Kraus (who was found a little earlier) and Nathanial Jacobs who, besides acting, was also an editor on the first season of The Witcher. All of them are tall and well trained, fitting the casting pattern for the witchers.
Notice how the former two sheathe their training swords on their backs.
Who or what are all of these witchers fighting?
We don’t know for certain, but if it takes so many skilled highly-skilled monster slayers to overcome, it must be someone or something quite powerful. We do suspect, however, it might be the leshy we reported earlier this year.
To remind you, back in February we reported that a leshy would appear in the second season of The Witcher and its encounter with the characters will bear “serious consequences”. Perhaps the consequences are the witcher lives that are lost during this fight, but it’s all speculation for now.
