The Witcher Netflix Series Has Reportedly Finished Filming

by Liana Ruppert

The Witcher Netflix series has been putting in the work and while we’ve had some pretty incredible behind-the-scenes looks, that just doesn’t quite match up to seeing the real deal. Luckily, the new series is slated for a 2019 release and according to a new report – it has officially wrapped up filming! Does this mean we’ll be getting a full reveal trailer soon? Maybe even a launch date? 

According to a recent collection of cast and grew thoughts collected by the blog Redanian Intelligence, several members of this team have bid their farewells to the set as filming wraps up. From Instagram posts, to Twitter, the farewells mean great things for what’s coming next – hopefully an actual trailer.

So far the only look we’ve seen at the upcoming show is a makeup and wig test shot of Henry Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia. Since it wasn’t the full effect with special FX and full gear, many felt underwhelmed by the first look. Perhaps now that filming is done we’ll see a much more polished video, one with a fully battle-ready Geralt front and center. 

It’s possible there will be a few staggering reshoots due to recasting, though nothing has been solidified at this time. For now, it’s easy to be excited that the bulk of the work is done and the team can enter the final stages of production. 

With a tagline of “The Witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts,” we can’t help but to be completely excited for the upcoming 8 episode-long series! Fans are even warming up to the idea of Cavill as Geralt himself following numerous photos leaked of him on set and during his grueling training regime when getting in tip-top witcher shape.

The upcoming show stars Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill as the main protagonist himself, alongside Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, and Anna Shaffer as Triss Merigold. The author of the books himself is also on board with the project, working as the creative consultant for Hissrich’s vision.
