The Witcher season 2 shooting has reportedly ended, which means the fantasy thriller is getting closer to its Netflix debut. The release date of the Witcher season 2 is not yet scheduled because special effects are required for the episode. Meanwhile, viewers are able to theorise about the upcoming cast Members and see the leaked photographs. To mark the end of the season, Netflix has launched a new video on the production behind the scenes – and tossed at what is next for Geralt, Ciri, and everyone.
Showrunner Hissrich hosts behind-the-scenes footage, which clarified how large and complex the production was. According to Hissrich, 158 days were shot by the crew of over 1,200 people and 89 cast members. In addition, often two or three camera crews were filming simultaneously. Naturally, since this is The Witcher, all of the scenes have been shot outdoors and sometimes in very cold conditions.
Although the majority of the video focuses on the technical aspects of filming The Witcher Season 2, we can get a few glimpses of Geralt and Ciri in their outfits, as well as several shots of mysterious and foggy lands. However, Hissrich doesn’t leave the fans entirely bare. She says that in this season you are joining the history of Elve Blood, which should be a good preview to the complot of the season.
The Blood of Elves is the first complete novel by Witcher — short storey collections were published previously — and tells the storey of Geralt and Ciri’s schooling at Kaer Morhen earlier together (as well as other stuff here we won’t spot). This has already seemed like the most possible plot for the second season based on the conclusion of season 1, so it’s good to know for sure. However, according to the first page of the season’s script, which Netflix launched in December, there will be several flashbacks.
The Witcher season 2 release date
As of now, there is no official confirmation for the release date of the Witcher season 2.
In November 2019, the series was renewed for a second season. In early 2020 in London, the eight-episode season started production for a projected 2021 premiere. However, the COVID-19 pandemic had much of this raised.
The 2nd season of Witcher and most of the TV films were halted. However, in August movies were resumed citing protocols on health and safety.
According to the timetable for season 1, after production, planning for the witcher season 2 could take up to seven months. Therefore, in last quarter of 2021. the Witcher season 2 is likely to be released.
