This week, Netflix wrapped production on the second season of their fantasy hit The Witcher, starring Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan. To tease the upcoming season and celebrate this massive production milestone, Netflix has released a Behind-the-Scenes video featuring Cavill and a speech by showrunner Lauren Hissrich.
Besides this video, Cavill himself shared a wrap picture on his Instagram page where he can be seen in Geralt’s new armor and holding the season’s final clapperboard. The Witcher’s official Twitter account has also posted a video featuring key crew members celebrating the wrap.
UPDATE: A new article by Variety includes a new BTS picture first shared by Netlfix Poland and a great quote from our showrunner Lauren Hissrich. “It has been fantastic to shoot The Witcher here in the U.K. We have filmed at some incredible locations including Fountains Abbey, Blea Tarn, Hodge Close, Frensham Ponds, and of course, our comforting home at Arborfield Studios. We’ve assembled the best British talent and crew who have been passionate, professional and brilliant partners through such a complex and unprecedented filming experience. Now we can’t wait for everyone to see all of the hard work that has gone into this production.”
This comes just hours after we uncovered several new castings for the Netflix show, including important characters from the books (and games) such as Eredin, King of the Wild Hunt, and Young Geralt and Vesemir who will appear in a flashback.
