Netflix production has begun today with the recording of the new episodes.
The month of August was chosen by Netflix to begin production of the second season of The Witcher, again starring Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra, and Freya Allan. The chosen day had been next Monday, August 17, however, there has been a change in planning and filming has begun today.
In March, the series based on Andrzej Sapkowski's work had to paralyze his filming, with greater haste than others since one of its cast members had tested positive for COVID-19; this is the case of actor Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones), who will bring Nivellen to life in the title. But now, almost five months later, the team re-enters to return to work.
