The production on The Witcher Season 2 has met several obstacles throughout the year. Filming had to be put on hold several times due to COVID-19. However, the Netflix show's new dilemma has little to do with the pandemic. It has been revealed that lead star Henry Cavill has suffered an injury while filming an action sequence and will need some time to recuperate.
The report comes from The Sun, which shared some details about how Henry Cavill was injured on the set of The Witcher Season 2. According to the report, the Justice League star was being hoisted 20 feet high in trees while on a safety harness at the Arborfield Studios, Berks, when the incident happened.
A source who was present at the set shared details about the incident. "The filming has been hit because of what happened to Henry. He was on an assault course and injured his leg," the source said. "He just suddenly pulled up and was clearly in a lot of pain. It wasn't clear if an object had hit his leg or it was some sort of hamstring or muscle injury."
Luckily, the source also confirmed that the injury was not serious but also stated that Henry Cavill was unable to resume filming afterwards. "It wasn't bad enough to need an ambulance, but it's messed up the filming schedule as he can't walk properly," they said before pointing out that Cavill " has to wear heavy armor in the scenes and he just wouldn't be able to do it with his leg injury.''
The report also stated that Henry Cavill had been advised to take a break from filming to give him time to recuperate. Unfortunately, this would mean that production on The Witcher Season 2 will be delayed even further. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
Earlier this year, The Witcher Season 2 was supposed to begin production so that the entire season could be completed before the end of 2020. However, this was around the time that major productions were being put on hold due to COVID-19. Although the cast and crew were able to continue work sometime in September, this had to be halted again when some crew members tested positive for COVID-19.
The Witcher Season 2 will also star Anya Chalotra and Freya Allen. The second season of the series has not yet been given an official release date. However, it is already expected to air on Netflix by late 2021.
