Deadline reports that the second season of Netflix series The Witcher will go back into production on August 17.
The restart is symbolic given that The Witcher was one of the first major shows to shut down in mid-March, when the coronavirus pandemic swept through the UK film and TV business.
The same day that the show’s UK shoot was halted, cast member Kristofer Hivju also tested positive for the virus, leading the streamer to conduct a deep-clean of the set to prevent further infection.
Slowly but surely we are starting to see some major UK projects head back into production on Brit shores. Universal’s Jurassic World: Dominion is set to be the first major studio movie to re-start filming properly in the UK on July 6 at Pinewood Studios, with extensive coronavirus preventative measures in place.
