Like many other productions, season two of the series was plagued with setbacks during 2020. The most recent one was main star Henry Cavill injuring his leg while performing a stunt on location. Production continued without the actor while he worked on his recovery.
No release date has yet been set for 'The Witcher' season two, but a planned spin-off prequel series is already in production. 'Blood Origin' will be helmed by Waterford director Declan de Barra for Netflix.
