Netflix June 22 disclosed it would resume production on popular original series, “The Witcher,” in the U.K. on Aug. 17. The show, like myriad others globally, had been on shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. Indeed, one of series’ actors, Kristofer Hivju, tested positive for COVID-19. Henry Cavill (Superman), who headlines the fantasy drama, did not test positive.
“I’m dusting off my lute and quill, I have some news, some mead to spill: After all the months we’ve been apart, it’s time for production to restart. The Witcher and his bard — who’s flawless, will reunite on set 17 August,” Netflix posted on the show’s Twitter feed.
