Filming on Netflix’s Witcher series is wrapping up

Principal photography for the first season of Netflix’s upcoming Witcher series is just about completed, with cast and crew members posting various telltale signs across social media. A wrap party of sorts was held April 24, and now actors and directors are indicating that they’re heading home from filming locations.

The social media hints have been collected by Redanian Intelligence, a blog dedicated to following the production of The Witcher series. Adam Levy, who is portraying the Skellige druid Mousesack, posted a short video to Instagram from the wrap party, which was held at the Hotsy Totsy bar in Budapest. He said he was “celebrating the wrap of another chunk of this epic journey” in the caption.

Charlotte Brändström, who is directing two episodes in the season, posted a photo of Budapest from her seat on an airplane departing the city April 27, captioning the photo “Goodbye Budapest…”

As Redanian Intelligence notes, there still appears to be some filming left to do, as several actors and crew appear set to remain in Hungary for at least another couple weeks. But with several key characters leaving the set, it seems clear that the bulk of photography has been finished.

What’s left, then, is likely to be several months of post-production and marketing, as teams work on adding visual effects and hyping the show to potential audiences. Based on the kinds of creatures we’ve seen in the Witcher series of videogames, there’s probably quite a bit of work to do – you want those griffin feathers to glisten with the blood of its victims just so, after all.

Netflix hasn’t announced a specific release date for The Witcher series yet, but all signs point to a debut sometime late this year – possibly in the fall. That gives you plenty of time to replay the three games and get caught up on Andzej Sapkowski’s original novels.
