To add to the flood of coronavirus delays over the film and TV industry, The Witcher season 2 also paused their filming. This decision was made on March 16 and, naturally given the present circumstance with COVID-19, hasn’t began back up again.
But finally some uplifting news about the show. The Witcher season 2 may begin shooting again very soon.
In an interview , Arborfield Studios managing director, Bob Terry, affirmed that the studio would conclude safety measures in the following two weeks towards the mid-of-June. That is uplifting news for Witcher fans as Arborfield is the main studio in London which Is used by Netflix to film and produce the series.
The Witcher season 2 release date is set for 2021
We’re still no nearer to learning The Witcher season 2 release date. Outside of a general “2021” window, Netflix hasn’t enlightened us on when the new episodes are dropping. Netflix declared in an announcement (through Deadline) that pre-production will start in “mid 2020” (though it’s at present paused shooting) with a view to a 2021 release date. Aside from showrunner and series maker Lauren S. Hissrich reaffirming that The Witcher season 2 realease date is 2021, not 2020. She stated, “We don’t have a final launch date for season 2 yet, past 2021…We don’t want to rush the product. That doesn’t benefit anyone. But the larger gap between filming in 2020 and a 2021 release date shouldn’t concern fans”
In this way, even with the present delays, it’s likely not going to affect The Witcher season 2 release date excessively, if by any means.
But when would we be able to expect a genuine release date declaration? With filming right now deferred due to the coronavirus pandemic, don’t anticipate any news until the second half of 2020. For reference, the first season’s release date reveal was held off until late October, only seven weeks before it dropped. It’s presumably not going to be such a short time span for season 2, yet it additionally implies a season 2 announcement won’t be happening for around 3 to 4 months at the soonest.
