It’s been revealed that production on Netflix’s The Witcher Season 2 has been put on hold due to multiple COVID-19 cases. It’s being reported by Deadline that the production is now in a state of chaos due to the sheer number of new COVID cases.
The Netflix-made TV series was being filmed at Arborfield Studios in the UK. It’s located roughly about 40 miles away from West London and according to the media outlet, Deadline, the production crew were informed via email that things of the show have been put on hold.
