An entire year, 159 filming days and a pandemic later, production of The Witcher Season 2 has finally wrapped in Arborfield Studios on April 1, 2021. After a successful start in February 2020, the production faced unprecedented challenges due to COVID-19 and multiple delays, but showrunner Lauren Hissrich and her team persevered through the many challenges and brought the season to an end.
Before we look at the social media wrap posts of the stars, let us admire this bewitching lady who was at Arborfield Studios this week. Our guess is as good as anyone as to who she plays in the series. Yes, we believe she wrapped filming too.
Jacqueline Rathore, Henry Cavill’s personal hairdresser was the one to first announce the wrap on her Instagram stories.
One of the three main leads, Freya Allan also expressed her joy about finishing the second season on her Instagram:
She was followed by Anna Shaffer (Triss), Tom Canton (Filavandrel), Kaine Zajaz (Gage), and Mecia Simson (Francesca) posting on the wrap. (Kaine still seems a bit worried disclosing the name of the project, but have no fear, he’s got us!)
From the crew, director Sarah O’Gorman posted her first or one of her first clapperboards from The Witcher Season 2. But we don’t bid farewell to Sarah in the Witcher universe just yet. More on that later.
The crew also posted photos of the wrap gifts they received from their colleagues. By the tradition Henry Cavill has followed in all his productions, he sent wrap gifts to everyone on the Season 2 production team with a personalized note.
Lastly, executive producer Tomek Baginski announced the wrap as well and showrunner Lauren Hissrich expressed her joy and gratefulness on this happy occasion.
Season 2 of The Witcher has been an unusual ride for the cast and the crew, and for the fans too, who have been eagerly waiting to see their favorite characters on screen again. Post-production has already started and estimating 6-7 months for it, we can expect to watch the series in the last quarter of 2021.
