The cast and crew members of the Netflix series are scheduled to resume filming the second season roughly five months after the production was shut down due to pandemic.
Cast and crew will get back to the second season of the Netflix series after the coronavirus pandemic shut down all filming projects in the U.K. and U.S. in mid-March 2020.
“The Witcher” was one of the first major shows to shut down, on the same day star Kristofer Hivju tested positive for COVID-19.
Last week, Deadline sources revealed Universal’s “Jurassic World: Dominion” will be the first major studio movie to re-start filming in the U.K. on July 6, 2020 at Pinewood Studios near London.
Producers of “The Witcher”, which shoots at Arborfield Studios – just outside the capital, confirm the restart in a Twitter message that read, “I’m dusting off my lute and quill / I have some news, some mead to spill / After all the months we’ve been apart / It’s time for production to restart / The Witcher and his bard – who’s flawless / Will reunite on set 17 August.”
