The Netflix television series The Witcher continues with the production of its second season on hiatus due to the current global coronavirus crisis, as it happens with the entire film and series industry and the numerous delays in both upcoming releases and filming. Now, the showrunner of the series based on the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, has explained the current situation and the immediate future of the production, as well as sharing more details about the plot of season 2.
Exploring the origins of Geralt de Rivia
Thus, the showrunner admits that we will still have to wait a long time to enjoy the new episodes of The Witcher: “We were filming in the UK and we had six weeks of recordings when we had to stop. We were literally in the middle of a great sequence that we had been preparing for months. Now we are making all kinds of plans, waiting for several governments to come up with their recommendations. And with film and Netflix commissions. And that will have consequences in history, “he admits.
On the other hand, Hissrich has also explained some details of the plot of the second season of The Witcher; and it is that beyond emphasizing the absence of temporary jumps, this time they will focus on the roots of Geralt de Rivia and the relationship between the sorcerer and Ciri: “Coming from the first, you know who is Ciri and also who is Geralt. And now we put them together in a mixer and see what happens when two characters who are completely different are forced to be together by the circumstances. And I think it’s a lot of fun. It is not always pretty. They are going to argue and fight. It will be two strangers joining their paths for the first time. I think their growth together to become a father and daughter is one of my favorite parts of the series, “he concludes.
