The Witcher 3 Production Shuts Down Due to BA.5 COVID-19 Variant

Witcher Season 3 production halt due to covid in team


Netflix has announced a temporary halt in the production of The Witcher Season 3 due to the latest COVID-related developments. While the streaming giant did not confirm whether Henry Cavill tested positive for the virus, rumors circulated earlier this week about the actor’s positive test.

The Witcher Season 3 production was paused due to COVID, and Netflix assured fans that filming would resume when it is safe to do so. This is not the first time the U.K.-based production has faced COVID-related disruptions; Season 2 also experienced a shutdown in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Henry Cavill’s potential positive COVID test comes amid recent speculations about his role as Superman. After Dwayne Johnson suggested a possible change in the iconic role during a Black Adam panel, fans expressed their disagreement. However, Johnson later clarified his appreciation for Cavill, calling him “the Superman of our generation.”

The BA.5 COVID-19 variant, known for its rapid spread, has impacted various public figures. With the unpredictable nature of the virus and rising cases, the release date for The Witcher Season 3 remains unknown. Fans eagerly await further updates, understanding that pandemic-related disruptions can cause temporary delays in production schedules.

The World Health Organization reports a global rise in COVID-19 cases, driven by highly contagious variants. While efforts to combat the pandemic have waned, the virus’s impact on various sectors, including entertainment productions, persists.

As of now, there is no official release date for The Witcher Season 3. Fans can catch up on the first two seasons on Netflix while awaiting further updates on the highly anticipated continuation of the series.
