The news comes amid unconfirmed online rumors that star Henry Cavill reportedly tested positive for the virus, but the streaming platform Netflix is content to officially state that filming has been “interrupted due to Covid-19 and that we will be operational as soon as it is safe to do so.”

The Witcher season 3 will be delayed, but aims for 2023
The Witcher’s third season doesn’t yet have an air date, but . The story will pick up where the second season left off. The net is closing in on Ciri, with Nilfgaard, Redania, and the Kings of the North all out to capture – or, worse, kill – Cintra’s cub. Francesca and the other elves also have Ciri in their sights, who is now under the protection of Geralt and Yennefer. Betrayal is expected to be at the heart of Season 3. Aretuza and his mages are seemingly split over who they should serve, while Jaskier is pocketed by Dijkstra and Redania.
