Henry Cavill confirms news of hamstring injury on the sets of The Witcher

The actor took to Instagram to post a picture about his recovery process after the hamstring injury

Published: 08th January 2021

Henry Cavill has confirmed the reports of a hamstring injury he suffered late last year during the filming of the much-anticipated season 2 of Netflix's fantasy series, The Witcher.

The Witcher is based on the series of novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. It follows the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil are not easily identified.

Cavill leads the cast as Geralt of Rivia, alongside Anya Chalotra as Yennefer and Freya Allan as Ciri. The first season of the series premiered in November 2019 and the streaming platform renewed the show for a sophomore run in December 2019. 

Season 2 of The Witcher has been in the works for some time, but the production was initially delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Later, several crew members tested positive, which further delayed the production.

In December, it was reported that Cavill suffered a 'minor' injury. The filming of season 2 continues to take place without Cavill, and the actor took to Instagram to post a picture about his recovery process, thereby confirming the news.

“We are in lockdown here in the UK,” the caption reads, “so I'm using my once a day outdoor exercise to go for my first jog since my hamstring injury! (More on that another time).” 

The eight-episode season 2 is expected to arrive sometime in 2021.
