Making The Witcher gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the Netflix series

Isn’t not season 2, but it’s as close as we’re going to get for a while

Austen Goslin (he/him) is an entertainment editor. He writes about the latest TV shows and movies, and particularly loves all things horror.

It’s not easy to bring a sprawling fantasy world to life on screen, and in the case of The Witcher, Netflix has the behind-the-scenes footage to prove it. In a new featurette called Making The Witcher, Netflix gives fans an inside look at what it was like to create Geralt’s monster-hunting adventures.

The featurette focuses mostly on the craft and creation of The Witcher’s world and its many horrifying and grotesque monsters, but that doesn’t mean the show’s stars aren’t around at all. Making The Witcher also features interviews with Freya Allan, who players Ciri, Anya Chalotra, who plays Yennefer, and Geralt himself, Henry Cavill.

Making The Witcher isn’t particularly long, coming in at right around 32 minutes, but it should at least give fans a little something to tide them over until the second season begins, which won’t be for a while. In fact, it wasn’t until Friday, Aug. 21 that Henry Cavill shared a photo from the reopened set.

Until we can officially return to the world of The Witcher and the adventures of Geralt, at least Netflix is giving us some nice behind-the-scenes footage from Making The Witcher to tide us over. The Witcher is also getting a new animated spin-off called Nightmare of the Wolf, but it doesn’t have a release date yet, so there’s no telling if it will come before or after season 2. Netflix is also working on another series in the Witcher universe, this one a six-part limited series set 1,200 years before the events of the main series — but again, there’s no release date for the prequel, The Witcher: Blood Origin.
