There’s quite a hefty rumor circling on the internet right now, suggesting that the crew of Netflix’s The Witcher was filming today at Saunton Beach in Devon, UK. We did a quick check-in with our sources and can confirm that this is true. The production at Saunton Beach is indeed The Witcher. From all we heard, it seems the team has something special in store for the last days of filming.
UPDATE: We have talked further with our sources and confirmed that yes, this is indeed the Wild Hunt in The Witcher Season 2. As to how much we will see them, we couldn’t find that out. And here we have a few more pictures from filming, including newer ones from The Daily Mail.
The frightening armor, the outlandish weapons and skeletal horse cuirasses. It’s all a pretty familiar sight. especially to those who have played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Are you thinking what we think? It’s not a huge stretch given this sight and after all, the books made it pretty clear, that the Red Riders that first appear in Time of Contempt serve as the real-life basis for the mythological Wild Hunt. Of course, we’ll have to wait a bit longer for any certain information on the topic.
What we can say is that the unit filming at Saunton Beach is a relatively small one, not your usual 200/250-person roll-out they did back in Fall during the main location shoots. And more: our sources said that filming will continue there tomorrow. So here’s hoping that we’ll get a better look at what really is going on in Devon.
