Netflix is back with the second season of The Witcher as it is all set to go back to production in the month of August, the reported date is on August 17th. The Witcher was one of the major shows that had to put their production on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Many UK productions are going back to shooting as the pandemic situation is getting slowly better with time. The Witcher reportedly shoots at Arborfield Studios and that is about 40 miles west of London. Featuring Henry Cavill, The Witcher is a fantasy drama which is based out of the book series and also successfully runs as a popular video game.
