Star from The Witcher, Henry Cavill has revealed some updates on filming of season 2, after it was announced that England will go into another lockdown beginning on Thursday (November 5).
In an Instagram post, the actor posed with his dog Kal, as he prepared to leave Yorkshire ahead of the lockdown.
“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,” Cavill wrote.
“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.”
Last month Netflix teased plot details for season two, and it looks as if Cavill’s character Geralt of Rivia will be going back to his roots.
The synopsis for the second season shows that Geralt will assume that Yennefer has died following the epic battle at the end of season one.
“Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen,” it reads.
“While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.”
Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich previously opened up to Digital Spy about where the new episodes could go, explaining that season one was about “building blocks”.
“It’s about constructing the world, and setting up these characters, and putting them on paths, and knocking those dominoes over,” she explained.
“When you get to season two, all of those things start to come [into] play, which is that characters start meeting each other – sometimes getting along, sometimes not.
“So the storytelling is a little more intense in a way, and maybe a little more focused and driven in the journeys that we’re telling in season two.”
The Witcher is now streaming worldwide on Netflix.
