The third season of the series The Witcherfrom Netflix has been going on for a while now, but recently their filming hit a snag due to COVID complications that caused work on the show to be temporarily put on hold, but now, there are strong rumors that Henry Cavilll, the star of the series had tested positive, which would naturally limit everything that could be done.
What Netflix never definitively said who had COVID but did confirm that production had stopped, although according to the most recent reports filming has apparently resumed, including filming of Cavill’s scenes, this news came not long ago from Redanian Intelligence, a news outlet focused on The Witcher which has a pretty solid track record for this type of news.
Now if filming had resumed it reportedly dealt with scenes not involving the actor but as of this week the site is now reporting that Cavill is back on set to continue filming so due to the interruption of the production and the alleged quarantine during filming, Redanian Intelligence also said that the filming completion date for season 3 had been pushed back and filming is reported to end in the first half of September.
The cast of The Witcher, and those running the series, have shared updates from the shoot on social media whenever things got underway or as updates to show how things were going, so hopefully we’ll see something. Similarly now that filming wraps up, there are plenty of iconic moments and characters from the books that fans are hoping to see in Season 3.
Now we share the description of what we can expect on the screen: “As monarchs, wizards and beasts of the continent race to capture her, Geralt leads Ciri of Cintra into hiding, determined to protect his newly reunited family against those who threaten to destroy it”says the motto of The Witchers Season 3.
“Charged with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer takes them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to discover more about the girl’s untapped powers; instead, they discover that they have landed on a battlefield of political corruption, black magic, and evil. betrayal. They must fight back, risk everything, or risk being lost forever.”
