Back at the beginning of April, The Witcher showrunner and EP Lauren S. Hissrich dropped the news that fans of the popular Netflix fantasy-action series had been waiting for. After filming at 15 locations with 89 cast members and 1200 crew members in the middle of a pandemic, filming on the second season had wrapped. As if that wasn't good enough, "The Powers That Be" at Netflix also announced that the series would be one of three "tentpole" series that would be returning before the end of the year (along with Cobra Kai and You). So that's why fans shouldn't be too surprised by Hissrich's update on Monday morning- but that doesn't make it'll be any less exciting for them. Hissrich is back in London and wants viewers to know that they're "deep" into post-production on the series return.
"Back in London. Back in the (small dark loud) rooms where it happens. That's right, we're deep into post-production on [The Witcher Season 2], and I'm so fucking excited," Hissrich wrote in her tweet- which you can check out below:
