Hopefully, production on Season 3 will go more smoothly than it did for the second season! From coronavirus pandemic concerns to a major injury sustained by series star Henry Cavill, the most recent season was beset with problems.

The Witcher Season 1 & 2 Recap
After all of the problems that plagued production on the show during the previous two years, season two is now available, and it appears to be doing quite well for Netflix.
Viewership has been tremendous, and critical response has been positive, but the show’s audience rating was lower than in comparison to the first season. Many of those things seem to stem from fans’ dissatisfaction with how the series adapted the material from video games and novels.
There will always be issues when adapting any well-liked property, and seeing whether audience reaction to the program influences production on Season 3 when it does begin filming is intriguing.
Of course, it’s impossible to please everyone, and the loudest voices tend to drown out everyone else’s feedback. If the show’s viewership continues to grow, it appears that Netflix and the producers will leave things as they are. Fans just have to wait and see what happens!
