The second season of Netflix series The Witcher shut down in mid-March when the coronavirus hit. And today we hear the series will go back into production on August 17th.
Here’s the official twitter post confirmed the news:
Produced by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich The Witcher is based on the book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski.
It’s set on a fictional, medieval-inspired land known as “the Continent”, it explores the legend of Geralt of Rivia and princess Ciri, who are linked by destiny to each other. The show initially follows the three main protagonists at different points of time, exploring formative events that shaped their characters, before eventually merging into a single timeline.
The first season sports a 67% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Though the world of The Witcher at times feels only half-formed, Henry Cavill brings brawny charisma to a series teeming with subversive fantasy elements and dark humor.
