If you were already worried about having to wait almost a whole year before we get to see the second season of the Netflix adaptation of The Witcher starring Henry Cavill, your day might be about to get a little worse.
Let’s face it, if there’s something in production right now, that production is being shut down over the Coronavirus. And, if there’s a moving scheduled to hit theaters in the next few months, don’t expect that to actually happen until sometime in the late summer or fall, at the earliest. While we don’t have to worry about movie theaters with the Witcher, the virus has caused enough concerns that Deadline is reporting the production of season two has been halted.
“We have made the decision, effective immediately, to pause production for two weeks during this difficult time…this will allow everyone the time to make informed decisions about how to move forward,” a source tells the trade. “The coronavirus has raised challenging issues for everyone working on set on productions for Netflix. We are very grateful for all the work everyone has done to keep cast and crew safe during this pandemic.”
