The Witcher Season 2’s Release Date Reportedly Delayed After Henry Cavill’s Injury

It’s being reported that The Witcher Season 2’s release date on Netflix has been delayed after Henry Cavill’s injury, which isn’t great news. This rumour was reported by EpicStream.

Henry Cavill suffered a pretty nasty injury a few weeks ago that forced him to have to take some time off filming The Witcher. This, in turn, meant that they had to pause production on some scenes – most of which would have involved Cavill playing Geralt of Rivia.

It’s since been revealed that Cavill is back on set and filming has fully resumed, which is great news for the show and for Netflix. They would be very keen to get things moving again on the production. This is due to the fact that The Witcher Season 1 was the most-watched original Netflix series of all time.

According to Redanian Intelligence (a site completely devoted to all things The Witcher), the British actor has since recovered and has now returned to the set to finish filming on the Kaer Morhen scenes. One of his costars, Paul Bullion, who will appear as Lambert within the upcoming season, confirmed his return on social media.

This all means that filming on Season 2 won’t be finished until March 2021. The show was originally intended to be all done with filming in February 2021. This means that the show’s release date could be pushed back slightly by Netflix. There is no official release date for Season 2 announced, it’s been speculated that the premiere of Season 2 will likely be in autumn 2021 rather than August as previously reported.
