Having resumed production on its second season back in August, Netflix has been forced to put filming on The Witcher on hold once again after four members of the crew tested positive for COVID-19.
As reported by Variety, the show is currently shooting at Aborfield Studios in the UK, but production has been paused while Netflix carries out a round of coronavirus testing for everyone involved with the show. The four people who tested positive are currently in isolation, and are not believed to be among the principal cast members.
Filming will resume once Netflix is satisfied that it is safe to do so.
Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.
