A number of television, cable, streaming, and movie productions were brought to cessation in the wake of the coronavirus. Initially we reported that a slate of Netflix shows and movies were shut down but the fate of The Witcher’s second season was up in the air. Well, it’s now been confirmed that the second season of the show has been halted.
The news was captured by Redanian Intelligence, who reported on the breaking news on March 16th, 2020.
Netflix sent a statement to the Hollywood Reporter after sending out e-mails to cast and crew indicating that production was being halted for two weeks. In the statement, Netflix wrote…
“Cast and crew health is our primary concern. We are dealing with an unprecedented global pandemic that is beyond our control, and in many instances with mandates or restrictions imposed by governments (including travel restrictions in many countries). As such, we have made the decision, effective immediately, to pause production for 2 weeks during this difficult time, and we will support our production partners working on Netflix U.K. scripted series in doing the same. This will allow everyone the time to make informed decisions about how to move forward. 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.”
As noted in the article, production was supposed to last up through August, but now it’s been put off for two weeks as they assess the effects the virus may have on cast and crew.
In fact, one cast member, Kristofer Hivju, who plays Nivellen in the show, was diagnosed with the coronavirus, which was documented in a follow-up report by Redanian Intelligence.
The Norwegian informed his 3.7 million followers on Instagram about the development, telling everyone to take necessary precautions after stating that he was self-isolating.

Greetings from Norway! Sorry to say that I, today, have tested positive for COVID19, Corona virus. My familiy and I are self-isolating at home for as long as it takes. We are in good health – I only have mild symptoms of a cold. There are people at higher risk for who this virus might be a devastating diagnosis, so I urge all of you to be extremely careful; wash your hands, keep 1,5 meters distance from others, go in quarantine; just do everything you can to stop the virus from spreading. Together we can fight this virus and avert a crisis at our hospitals. Please take care of each other, keep your distance, and stay healthy! Please visit your country’s Center for Disease Control’s website, and follow the regulations for staying safe and protecting not just yourselves, but our entire community, and especially those at risk like the elderly and people with pre-existing conditions. @grymolvaerhivju #fightcorona #solidarity #takecare #folkehelseinstituttet Thanks to @panoramaagency
Despite Henry Cavill being a beacon of light for the show, sadly it’s converged.
Early on we found out that the writing team was pro open-borders, which funnily enough came back to bite them in the butt as one of their cast members got infected by COVID-19 due to a lack of border security.
Later on it was confirmed that various key cast members such as Triss Merigold and Fringilla had been, in a dastardly move, race-swapped. The showrunner, Lauren Hissrich, attempted to defend the race-swapping, while beta males and cuckolds tried coming up with nonsensical excuses for the degeneracy.
And to top it off, they had Yennefer engage in public interracial sex in the show, something that never happened in the books or games.
Again, cuckolds, simps, and beta males have run to the defense of the show, but it only goes to further prove that society is collapsing under the propaganda being foisted upon the general public by Left-wing degenerates.
Anyway, on the upside the production of Netflix’s second season of The Witcher has at least been halted, so further ravaging of the source material will be staved off… for now.
