We’re still a little while of Season 2 of The Witcher landing on Netflix, however, today the streaming service released ‘Making The Witcher’, a little behind-the-scenes documentary to help people missing Geralt, Ciri & Yennefer!

‘Making The Witcher’ follows the cast and crew of the drama to go behind the monsters, the ballads, and every bit of magic that went into bringing The Witcher’s continent to life. See how the impressive fight sequences were put together, Henry Cavill discussing how he “hunted” the role, and the creation of the amazing practical and visual effects on the show.

Season 1 of the Witcher follows Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward the powerful sorceress Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), and Ciri (Freya Allan), a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

Henry Cavill (Mission Impossible – Fallout, Man of Steel) leads the cast of The Witcher saga, playing the role of Geralt of Rivia, alongside other main cast members, Anya Chalotra (The ABC Murders, Wanderlust) as Yennefer and Freya Allan (The War of the Worlds, Into The Badlands) as Ciri.

Other cast includes Jodhi May (Game of Thrones, Genius) as Calanthe, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson (Fortitude) as Eist, Adam Levy (Knightfall, Snatch) as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring (Ripper Street, Kill List) as Tissaia, Mimi Ndiweni (Black Earth Rising) as Fringilla, Therica Wilson-Read (Profile) as Sabrina, and Emma Appleton (The End of The F**king World) as Renfri, Eamon Farren (The ABC Murders, Twin Peaks) as Cahir, Joey Batey (Knightfall, Strike) as Jaskier, Lars Mikkelsen (House of Cards, Sherlock) as Stregobor, Royce Pierreson (Wanderlust, Judy) as Istredd, Maciej Musia? (1983) as Sir Lazlo, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte (Jamillah & Aladdin, Dickensian) as Dara, and Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter) as Triss.

Netflix had already renewed the drama for a 2nd Season before Season 1 aired. However, like everything else at the moment, filming was delayed due to the global pandemic. The good news is that filming on ‘The Witcher’ Season 2 began again last week in England, which hopefully means we should see it on screen in 2021.

In addition to a 2nd Season, it was also announced that Netflix had commissioned a prequel limited series, The Witcher: Blood Origin. Set in an elven world 1200 years before the events of ‘The Witcher’, Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time – the origin of the very first Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.

‘Making The Witcher’ is available to stream on Netflix UK and worldwide right now!
