The Witcher came back in 2019 to become a quick and massive strike for Netflix, and fans could rest easy knowing that Netflix had already renewed the dream show for a Season 2 until the first even premiered. Unfortunately, the COVID pandemic that brought much of the entertainment industry to a halt resulted in some significant delays for filming Season 2, with the schedule even leading at a recast of a character. The good news? Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has a message for lovers that could mean Season two footage coming soon.
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, that assisted show the wrap of production back in early April after 15 locations, 89 cast members, and 1200 team members, took to Twitter to fall an interesting detail about the current status of production on The Witcher Season 2:
Back in London. Back in the (small dark loud) rooms where it happens. That's right, we're deep into post-production on #TheWitcher S2, and I'm so fucking excited. ❤️⚔️????

It is difficult not to get excited about the showrunner’s tweet, and not just since of those apparent Hamilton reference with the”chambers where it happens” mention! Lauren Schmidt Hissrich being”deep to post-production” presumably means the show is closer than ever to having more considerable completed footage than brief moments of fresh monsters. And if the showrunner is”so fucking excited,” I believe fans can start getting hyped about what is in store!
I believe it’s fair for fans to start thinking about exactly what this implies for both a trailer and the next season. A series’s full season doesn’t need to have been fully completed for a trailer to release – non-Netflix reveals that still discharge episodes on a weekly basis do it all the time, and a couple of series would want to give everything away that happens toward the end of a year anyhow. And when a trailer could be ready in the coming weeks or months, then we can look at the deadline for Season 1’s releases.
The first teaser for The Witcher Season 1 was released in late July 2019, about five months before the show premiered in December. If a teaser or trailer is about the way sooner rather than later, then Season 2 could release far earlier in the year than Season 1 had been. That said, that July teaser release was timed to the Witcher panel at San Diego Comic-Con, so my fingers are crossed that we are not waiting until the upcoming digital SDCC for footage.
In any event, the truth that The Witcher filming has been completed (with celebrity Henry Cavill capping off the experience with a gorgeous wrap talent ) and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich is deep into post-production bodes well for fans being closer than ever to getting a fantastic look at what is on the way. Some details are revealed, such as that Season 2 won’t play with the timeline the same manner that Season 1 did.
For the time being, it is possible to find the first season of The Witcher streaming on Netflix, together with world of different options. The Witcher is not the sole high-profile Netflix show to be postponed as a result of pandemic shutdowns, but if Stranger Things could recently release a few footage, why not The Witcher?
