NETFLIX has confirmed The Witcher will resume filming on season two in August after the coronavirus pandemic shut down production.
The fantasy drama led by Henry Cavill was one of the many shows that had to halt filming earlier this year due to covid-19.
But today, the show’s official Twitter page announced the cast and crew would be back on set in a matter of weeks to resume filming.
The tweet, written as a rhyme which would be greatly appreciated by the show’s bard Jaskier, said: “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.”
Fans immediately shared their delight at the news, with one replying: “Now I’m a bit happier. Thanks for some good news. Can’t wait.”
Another added: “AAAAAAAAA. I already watched the season 1 three times waiting the season2.”
The news comes after The Witcher’s show runner revealed the multiple timelines from season one had been ditched for season two.
Fans were left outraged by season one when they realised the three main characters -Geralt, Cisi and Yennefer – were operating on separate timelines, leading to much confusion.
Discussing the reaction to the multiple timelines, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich told The Wrap:
What’s on Netflix and Amazon Prime?
“Obviously, it was one of the most controversial parts of season one and I didn’t expect it to be as controversial as it was.
“But it’s something I still stand behind, in terms of storytelling.”
Thankfully for fans, Lauren revealed season two will see all the characters on the same timeline.
She continued: “What’s great though is [the characters] have intersected now. So what we’ll see in season two is that all of our characters are existing on the same timeline.
“What that allows us to do story-wise though is to play with time in slightly different ways.
“We get to do flashbacks, we get to do flash-forwards, we get to actually integrate time in a completely different way that we weren’t able to do in season one.”
The Witcher season one is available on Netflix now.
