Cast and crew of Netflix’s The Witcher have been working tirelessly on the new season for the past few months, both inside the studio and on location. Now, the Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan series has reached a significant milestone, signaling its progress.
The Witcher Season 3 is halfway complete!
For the past week, cast and crew of The Witcher have been in South Wales working on location at Nash Point and Trefil Quarry. After that, celebration was due as the second block of the season has been wrapped.
Director Gandja Monteiro was responsible for Block 2, meaning episodes 3 and 4, while Stephen Surjik did Block 1 (episodes 1 and 2). Just like now, the wrapping of Block 1 was also celebrated, something that we suspect has become a new tradition for The Witcher crew.
With four episodes out of eight complete, the production for Season 3 can be considered halfway done. Now, four more to go!
Monteiro may still have a few work days left here and there, but the vast majority of her work on The Witcher Season 3 is now done.
Now, the ball is in Loni Peristere‘s corner, who is directing Block 3 or episodes 5 and 6. He will presumably do three days starting from Monday, June 27 at the Three Cliffs Bay, also in South Wales.
The Wales shoots so far
The Witcher filmed over two days in Wales so far. First was at Nash Point on June 23. We didn’t have any photos of the filming that day, but now we do, although it’s hard to see anything anyway.
On June 24, filming moved to the Trefil Quarry where our readers went to investigate and spotted none other than Henry Cavill. Sadly, no photos of Henry, but we have the landscapes and Roach:
As we mentioned above, from tomorrow filming will be taking place at Three Cliffs Bay, South Wales. Hopefully we’ll finally get some photos of the main cast!
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.
