Netflix’s popular series The Witcher was the latest production shut down due to numerous positive COVID-19 tests. For The Witcher, there are four positive cases of coronavirus among the crew on set, and Netflix is currently testing everyone involved in the production.
None of those affected were from the core staff and those affected were isolated.
When it’s safe to continue production, Netflix will re-stream the Season 2 cameras for the show at Arborfield Studios, near London.
Lauren S. Hissrich, the producer of The Witcher series, made a statement on Twitter saying “We Witchers are okay”
The Witcher’s second season had just moved into studio shots as Britain entered the lockdown for a new month on Thursday due to an increase in coronavirus cases.
When Netflix paused filming of all its movies and TV shows in response to the outbreak, it resumed filming last August, after the shooting was initially suspended in March.
Netflix is also working on The Witcher: Blood Origin, a six-episode spin-off prequel series that took place 1,200 years before Geralt roamed the lands of the Northern Kingdoms.
Season 2 of The Witcher is currently set for 2021.
