Season 3 of Netflix’s The Witcher is around halfway into its production, and while most outdoors filming is taking place in England, there is still Wales, where the cast and crew have started arriving this week.
We reported about Wales back in April, when director Gandja Monteiro (Episodes 3 and 4) was scouting some of the locations there.
Welsh Filming is finally afoot!
Now, the cast and crew are already in Wales for filming, after additional scouting earlier this June. Filming will take place over around ten days starting from today, June 23.
Filming is set to include horses, extras and potentially mages. Main cast of Henry Cavill, Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra are also expected.
Here’s where filming will take place over the course of the next week or two:
Llantwit Major Beach and Nash Point
Also in South Wales, these two locations are close to one another and both have been scouted by the team. Both have interesting rocky formations that would look great on sceen.
UPDATE: Filming started on June 23 in Nash Point.
The Trefil Quarry is an abandoned limestone quarry near the village of Trefil in South Wales. This is one of the locations Gandja Monteiro revealed to have been scouting for the new season.
Three Cliffs Bay
Another seaside location, the Three Cliffs Bay is a tad more to the west from the other locations. Still, it’s gorgeous and it will be interesting to see whether the team chose Three Cliffs Bay or Llantwit Major Beach. Or perhaps they chose both?
The bay has also picturesque hills nearby, so perhaps those will be featured as well.
Season 3 of The Witcher is in production until September 2022 for a 2023 release. The live-action prequel The Witcher: Blood Origin is in post-production after two weeks of reshoots and is currently eyed for a Christmas 2022 release.
