The Witcher: Henry Cavill Is Getting Taped and Glued for Season 2

Up to this point, we've been relying on showrunner/executive producer Lauren S. Hissrich and director Stephen D. Surjik (The Umbrella Academy) for our updates on the second season of Netflix's The Witcher– especially now that production is currently underway. But this time, we're hearing from Geralt himself as Henry Cavill (Justice League) took to Instagram to post an image from the set. In the post below, Cavill reveals that they're ditching the bald cap this season for a method that sounds like it's painful. He also reassures us that everyone's been in a COVID-19 cleared and in a bubble for production, with testing taking place twice a week.
