After a “frozen” period since the announcement of the cast of The Witcher Season 2, Lauren S. Hissrich returned with a photo taken from the set, while encouraging people to stay home and stay safe.
Due to the complicated situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the production of The Witcher Season 2 has been delayed, but that does not mean that fans will have to wait until 2022 to know more new details of the series. It will depend on how long the current situation will last, but fans may be able to watch it by the end of 2021. And from now on, it seems that the serialist, Lauren S. Hissrich, doesn’t want to let the production fade into obscurity.
On a post sharing on her Twitter page, Hissrich uploaded a new Season 2 studio photo taken about a month ago, while noting everyone staying at home and keeping safe. Based on the fact that actor Kristofer Hivju, who is best known for playing Tormund Giantsbane in Game of Thrones, tested positive for coronavirus, it’s likely that the virus is spreading near Hissrich’s house. Of course, this photo does not reveal too much detail for fans to analyze. However, if you look closely, actor Henry Cavill starring as Geralt, and the recording area takes place in a forest.
On Feb 22nd, other photos of the Season 2 were revealed on Twitter.
According to reports, Redanian Intelligence notes that there are two other characters that are involved in this scene. They are new Witcher season 2 characters Francesca and Gage. While Francesca was noted in Netflix’s recent casting announcement, some fans may not recognize her brother Gage. It’s unclear why Gage was left out of The Witcher season 2 cast reveal, but we know that he will be played by Kaine Zajaz in the show.
Another character that was missing from Netflix’s casting announcement was Geralt’s mentor Vesemir. Netflix had reportedly offered the role to the likes of Michael Keaton and Mads Mikkelsen, but they apparently turned down the opportunity. The latest rumor is that Mark Hamill will play Vesemir in The Witcher season 2, in response to fan demand, but nothing official has been announced.
Whatsoever, this is a way to maintain the excitement of the fans for the series. The Witcher has been the most viewed series in the world since its launch, and Season 2 is more likely to meet similar expectations. Season 1 of The Witcher is currently airing on Netflix, and Season 2 is ongoing.
