As a result of multiple positive COVID-19 diagnosis, production on season 2 of The Witcher has been brought to a halt. In a year filled with hundreds of production shutdowns, it really comes as little surprise that the hits keep coming.

The Witcher was deep into production when the positive test began to come in from around the on-set crew. It’s being reported by multiple sources that at least 4 positive test have been returned; however, none of these tests belong to any of the core actors.

As reported by Deadline, Netflix is now doing an “isolated round of testing of everyone involved in the show.”
