The shooting of the second season of Netflix's The Witcher has not been easy at all because of the COVID-19 pandemic that we are currently experiencing, and now the series is getting halted again, according to reports from Deadline.

The Witcher Series Had To Be Halted Because The Crew Was COVID Positive

This time the reason for the temporary shutdown was because of four of the crew who tested positive for the new coronavirus disease, and now they are testing everyone involved in this Netflix production. What has been confirmed is that none of the leading actors has tested positive, so now their producers are waiting for the filming to be resumed safely.

To avoid greater danger, it has been decided to send everyone home until there are no more positives, as confirmed by showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich in a tweet.

"Hey, the world is turned upside down — so thanks for the love and support for our little corner of it. We Witchers are okay. The health and safety of our crew and their families come first, and we will do whatever we need to do to protect them. We’ll be back soon. Xx"

This is the second time that filming for the second season has been halted, which is taking place at Arborfield Studios, west of London. The first break was in March because one of the leading actors tested positive, lasting until mid-August due to the confinement that took place in the United Kingdom.

The Witcher Production Full of Setbacks

Among other problems, the series has also lost actor Thue Rasmussen, who played Eskel in the series, who had to leave the project due to scheduling problems derived from the pandemic. Of course, despite all these setbacks, Netflix has insisted that they are also working on their third season, so we will still have Geralt de Rivia's adventures to follow for a while.

The Witcher is a Netflix-produced live-action series inspired by the original novels. In the show, they tell us the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, a sorcerer played by Henry Cavill who must hunt down all kinds of monsters in a dangerous dark fantasy world. The premiere of its second season is expected next year.
