Iranian Intelligence, the Witcher news site reports that Netflix's The Witcher has resumed production following a pause earlier this week. The production of Season 3 was abruptly halted during the filming of the Thanedd ball, the show's most ambitious sequence after star Henry Cavill tested positive for Covid.
Streamers told The Hollywood Reporter that filming was paused because of Covid, and we will be up and running as soon as it is safe to do so.” There seems to be no better time than now when several cast members confirmed their return to sets via Instagram stories.
Harvey Quinn, Cassie Clare, and Media Simson all posted several pictures, which ranged from jokes about the heat to mocking the Netflix label on a restroom, confirming the show is back on track. As part of the Thanet ball and subsequent coup plotline, Simon plays Francesca, Quinn portrays an undisclosed mage, and Clare plays Phillipa.
Geralt of Rivia himself, however, has not been confirmed back in action. However, there are plenty of sequences that can be performed without him during the ball. Yennefer, Ciri, and Geralt were finally reunited at the end of Season 2. At the end of the episode, a game-changing revelation is made, revealing that Duny is Nilfgaard's emperor, Emhyr Var Emreis.
Andrzej Sapkowski's fourth Witcher book Time of Contempt, where the Brotherhood of Sorcerers is disbanded, will be the focus of Season 3. Geralt's powers are revealed in the book, as Ciri and Geralt learn more about each other's relationships. Different factions are now hunting Ciri down, forcing Geralt to change his neutral stance on the Continent's politics. Seasons 1 and 2 of The Witcher can be viewed on Netflix.
