Bad luck follows the team responsible for filming the second season of Netflix's The Witcher. Once all the difficulties caused by the coronavirus pandemic were dealt with and the filming could finally pick up pace, unforeseen complications occurred yet again.
An unfortunate accident on the set is reported by The Sun, whose confidential sources say that Henry Cavill suffered a leg injury. It's serious enough that the actor can't participate in some scenes that require putting on heavier weapons or being more mobile. This is the report:
“The filming has been hit because of what happened to Henry. He was on an assault course and injured his leg. He just suddenly pulled up and was clearly in a lot of pain. It wasn’t clear if an object had hit his leg or it was some sort of hamstring or muscle injury.
It wasn’t bad enough to need an ambulance but it’s messed up the filming schedule as he can’t walk properly. He has to wear heavy armour in the scenes and he just wouldn’t be able to do it with his leg injury.’’
We sincerely sympathize with Cavill and wish him a speedy recovery. There's no denying that his injury could possibly prolong the shooting process and thus delay the release of the second season of The Witcher. Let's not jump into conclusions and wait for official announcements from either the actor himself or Netflix. At this point the premiere of the series is planned for the second half of 2021.
