It’s been two weeks now that The Witcher team has borrowed some of the locations in the Epping Forest to film Season 3 of the Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan series. The last number of days in the forest were at the Strawberry Hill Pond.
Upon seeing the set and knowing about the night shoots at the Strawberry Hill Pond we immediately assumed it could be Belleteyn and we were right! After making some inquiries, we can tell that this location is indeed for Belleteyn and the night shoots there are at full swing. Unfortunately, it’s at night and security is tight, so we haven’t been able to get any photos yet.
As we reported exactly a month ago, in one of the first episodes of The Witcher Season 3, Geralt, Ciri and Yennefer will attend the Belleteyn festival, which will result in some character bonding and development. Aside from the main three, Jeremy Crawford was spotted in London last week, so we can assume that Yarpen Zigrin will be there as well. It’s possible there are more characters at Belleteyn besides these four.

Producer Steve Gaub also says hi from the location:
The Witcher Season 3 is expected to film until August/September 2022 with a release date possibly in Spring 2023. Meanwhile, The Witcher prequel Blood Origin is currently in reshoots and expected to release in the second half of 2022.
