After a weekend off, The Witcher season 3 was due to resume filming on Monday, July 25 .


But this did not happen. Yesterday, rumors started circulating about Henry Cavill ‘s state of health .

Redanian Intelligence sources confirmed that Cavill has contracted Covid.

Filming is still suspended, we don’t know for how long and if it will also affect the rest of the cast and crew. Everything will depend on how quickly Cavill turns negative again.

However, this stop should not cause a significant delay, they should end between August / September 2022. The most ambitious sequence is scheduled for the month of August: the Thanedd Shot which will be attended by most of the entire cast.


The platform confirmed the news to THR . He explained that the shooting was: “Suspended due to COVID and we will be back in operation as soon as it is safe to do so.” But unlike the rumors, they didn’t mention Cavill. The actor’s representative did not want to communicate the news.

The synopsis:

As monarchs, wizards and beasts of the continent compete to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri of Cintra into hiding, determined to protect her newly reunited family against those who threaten to destroy her. Charged with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where he hopes to find out more about the girl’s unexplored powers; instead, they discover that they have landed on a battlefield of political corruption, black magic and treason. They will have to fight, put everything on the line – or risk being lost forever.
