Following the massive success of the first season, the Netflix blockbuster series has begun plans to start filming its second part commencing later this month.
The first season of the Witcher tv series which is based on the series of Polish fantasy novels written by Andrzej Sapkowski currently holds a 92% average audience score on Rotten Tomatoes and is officially one of Netflix’s highest rated originals. Alongside this it is hailed by some as a genuine rival to Game of Thrones despite the show being in its infancy. The quality of the show was noticed early as the announcement that the show had been renewed for a second season came in early November of last year from show runner Lauren Hissrich …. Over a month before the second season had even been released. Filming locations for the first season included Spain, Hungary and Poland whereas the second season will supposedly be filmed around the UK, Scotland and parts of Eastern Europe.
The Main characters of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri are all reprising their roles alongside a number of new introductions, including the addition of a young girl named violet (played by Carmel Laniado) who’s character may be more than meets the eye.
Slated at first for a late 2020 release, that date was reportedly soon pushed back to 2021 as the production team did not want to rush the project. The show runners explain that the scripts are written but that “doesn’t mean they won’t be rewritten 100 times before someone sees them on the air for season 2”. In any case the progress on The Witcher’s second season is sure to under heavy scrutiny due to the show’s explosion in popularity and you should expect many updates between now and when we get to see it sometime next year.
