It’s been revealed that The Witcher Season 2’s production is still going ahead despite the current Coronavirus pandemic which sounds a bit strange.
The news comes from Redanian Intelligence which is a pretty reliable source on all things The Witcher.
It was revealed that Netflix halted production on all shows and movies which were being shot in the USA and Canada.
That has lead to the production of the likes of Stranger Things Season 4 being put on hold.
However, The Witcher Season 2 is being shot in the UK and things have kind of carried on as normal here.
Now, I’m not going to go into what I think the UK government should do regarding the current pandemic.
However, what I will say is that Boris Johnson doesn’t really seem to be taking Covid-19 too seriously.
This lack of action is not going to be good in the long run.
Yet, it does mean that production on The Witcher Season 2 has been allowed to continue.
One thing I’d be slightly worried of is if the cast and crew of The Witcher Season 2 ends up getting the virus.
The Witcher Season 2 is carrying on production despite Covid-19 pandemic
It will spread like wildfire and then the Netflix show will really be in a bad place.
Imagine if Henry Cavill were to get the virus.
I mean, he’s pretty young and in good shape, so he should be fine.
That said, the safety of the cast and crew has to come first.
I’m surprised Netflix has allowed production on the show to continue.
We’ve already seen production on the likes of Lucifer Season 5, The Flash, Batwoman and Supergirl all put on hold due to the outbreak.
It seems as though the same caution hasn’t been placed on The Witcher Season 2’s production.
What do you make of this news?
Are you worried to hear that production on The Witcher Season 2 hasn’t been put on hold, or are you glad to hear this?
