The Witcher fans fear for season 2 filming as lockdown hits Henry Cavill show

Fans of Netflix series The Witcher are worried about season 2 after a recent post from star Henry Cavill.

The hit fantasy epic is due to return for a second run on the streaming giant but filming in the North of England has now been shut down due to the new national lockdown to combat the coronavirus.

Posting an image of himself with his dog, luggage, and sporting a flat cap and blue face mask, Henry Cavill made the revelation about how production has been affected.

Henry confirmed on Instagram on Tuesday: “England returns to lockdown on Thursday so it is time for me to depart Yorkshire and the extraordinary North, and head back down South to continue shooting in the studio.”

He added: “Thank you for hosting all of us on season 2 of The Witcher.

“Hopefully I shall return to your hills, dales and fells soon. Stay strong and stay safe, my friends. #Yorkshire#TheLakeDistrict#Witcher2 “.

Naturally, fans were concerned for the future of the show and for Henry’s safety in the times of the Covid-19 pandemic.

One fan penned: “Stay safe you too Henry and all the cast and crew. Thank you so much for your commitment, you’re giving me something to looking forward to during these difficult time.

“Entertainment has never been more important and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for keeping working to bring us some solace.”

A different follower of Henry’s comments: “@henrycavill , situation with lockdown is not very good, but, I hope everything will be fine, stay safe, dear Henry and Kal”.

Meanwhile, a different person replied to the post: “Henry may God protect you and your loved ones … whom you must need close by … Your fans are adorable, always present.

“The pandemic is the challenge that can sometimes seem like a monster … and being brave overcomes fear.
@henrycavill -The witcher”.

Elsewhere, one feared: “Netflix has scrapped so many great shows this year that all these delays make me nervous”.

“Are we even gonna get season 2 in 2021 at this rate?!” added another concerned fan with a sreaming emoji.

Production on The Witcher season 2 had been delayed earlier in the year due to the coronavirus

However, there seems to be no cause to worry that production on The Witcher season 2 will be delayed, as the show is still set to film – just in the safety of a studio as Henry has confirmed!

Filming on the series had previously halted production in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic but restarted once again in July.

Keep safe, Witcher crew and fans!

The Witcher season 1 is available now on Netflix, while season 2 is due on the platform in 2021.
