The production of the third season of The Witcher suffers a severe setback, as production has been forced to stop
Netflix has had to stop production of the third season of The Witcher due to the great enemy of film and television productions, COVID-19. The news comes amid unconfirmed rumors that series star Henry Cavill tested positive for the virus, but the production’s spokesman only said that filming “has stopped due to COVID and we will be up and running as soon as it is safe to do so,” without giving much more detail about what person or people from the crew have given. positive. And the actor’s environment has not commented on the matter either to deny or confirm that Cavill is affected by the virus. This is not the first time that the UK-based production has had to close due to the virus. The production of the series had to stop filming the second season in 2020.
The news comes after San Diego Comic-Con
The news comes on the heels of last week’s San Diego Comic-Con celebration. Where fans wondered if the star who brings the DCEU’s Superman to life could appear in DC Comics panels, Shazam! Fury of the gods or Black Adam, especially in the latter, after having accidentally suggested his star, Dwayne Johnson, that the actor could go to the appointment. Something that did not happen and that disappointed all the fans of the actor who were waiting for the announcement that Cavill would put on the man of steel suit again. Johnson assured in an interview: “Henry is a friend, and he is a phenomenal Superman, and Henry Cavill is the Superman of our generation, with respect to the other Supermans of the past.” Was it Covid that kept Cavill out of SDCC? The current BA.5 variant of COVID-19 is considered the most easily transmissible to date and has managed to infect notable figures such as the President of the United States, Joe Biden. There is still no release date for the third season of The Witcher. But it is clear that this small setback will affect the period in which we can enjoy the new adventures of Geralt de Rivia.Share0
