While Netflix has been a beacon of constant content releases even after so many other places have run dry during the pandemic, but all good things come to an end and it will hit us with the delay of Season 2 of The Witcher.
There is good news for those who have been waiting for the Witcher Season 2 for long; reportedly, it will resume filming by August 17.
The unfortunate news is that Season 2 of The Witcher was interrupted in a five-month shoot four weeks ago. And the initial shooting duration has now been expanded to eight months following the pandemic.
If it takes seven months from August 17, the release will take place around mid-March 2021. Not to mention something about post-production, this ensures that the debut of The Witcher 2 would definitely not out until the summer of 2021 at the earliest, maybe June or July (If we are lucky enough!)
Hopefully, The Blood Origin prequel miniseries may help the fans kill some time before the premiere of Season 2.
Netflix reported that Blood Origin is not shot until production of The Witcher season 2 ends, so it is not going to premiere until mid-2021 following season 2.
Only a few big productions managed to slide in before the global shutdown like The Mandalorian season 2, will air in October, given it was shot before the pandemic. Considering Disney has delayed all its promised shows, which were supposed to arrive this summer/fall, and series like AMC’s The Walking Dead are pushed to 2021, we will have to make our peace with The Witcher’s release around summer 2021.
