The Witcher season two has faced numerous delays to filming due to the coronavirus crisis and injuries.

Filming resumed late last year, but actor Thrue Ersted Rasmussen was forced to drop out of the show due to pandemic-related scheduling issues, with his role being recast.

Rasmussen had already begun filming as the character Eskel when lockdown measures and filming restrictions were enforced, leading to an amended shooting schedule.
