March has come and we are now in the final few weeks of Netflix’s production of The Witcher Season 2. Last time we reported that The Witcher was filming a major action sequence that involves elves. We also knew that some of the Nilfgaardian cast have been filming lately and suggested that the empire could also be involved. Now we know for sure.
It appears that some of the action revolves around a Nilfgaardian stronghold or a castle. This is not a real castle somewhere in the UK, but a set that was entirely built by the extremely talented and hard-working crew at Arborfield Studios, so big props to them.
Perhaps this Nilfgaardian set is a part of the massive town lot that has been under construction since October/November 2019 and one part of it was built as a Nilfgaardian location, while others could accommodate scenes from Oxenfurt, Gors Velen and others. Or perhaps the location could even be Nilfgaardian-held Cintra.
Like we have been reporting lately, both Eamon Farren (Cahir) and Mimi Ndiweni (Fringilla) have been present lately on set as well as Tom Canton (Filavandrel), Mecia Simson (Francesca) and Kaine Zajaz (Gage) along with a good number of extras and stuntpeople.
It’s hard to say what this storyline exactly is, but it will certainly be curious to watch it unfold when the season is finally released this year.
The Witcher Season 2 is currently in its final weeks of production for a release later this year. Stay tuned for more news!
