Establish photos from the filming of”The Witcher” season 2 in Arborfield Studios in the U.K. hint at a major action sequence happening near the end of the season that could entail the Nilfgaardian army and the elves.
Filming for the installation is nearing its final days of conclusion and with it comes a series of photographs that could hint at another bloodbath from the finale. According to Redanian Intelligence, the cast and crew spent over a whole week perfecting the action sequence which is said to happen in a castle or the Nilfgaardian stronghold.
One of the returning cast members current on the set was Eamon Farren, who returns as Cahir, the intelligence officer of the Nilfgaardian Empire, and Mimi Ndiweni, who reprises her role as the wicked sorceress Fringilla. Similarly, Tom Canton, that performs the elven king Filavandrel, also beginners Media Simson and Kaine Zajaz were there together with a couple of extras and stunt people. Simson plays the elven queen Francesca Findabair and Zajaz plays Francesca’s brother, Gage.
According to the publication, the conflict sequence included sword fights and of course, blood and gore. The filming reportedly started at dawn on many days with”The Witcher” showrunner Lauren Hissrich even sharing a photograph of the setting moon recorded during a few of those six-day workweeks.

The battle scene is said to be for the season two finale of”The Witcher” though there’s not any telling yet what resulted in the fight. Given the presence of Cahir and Fringilla, it’s likely reminiscent of the bloodbath that happened in the season 1 finale, which saw Yennefer go all out with her powers.
Speaking of Yennefer, celebrity Anya Chalotra was not at the Nilfgaardian set for the stated battle sequence. Henry Cavill (Geralt of Rivia) and Ciri (Freya Allan) have been missing recently in photos taken in the set. But another familiar face from season 1 was at the studio: Royce Pierson, who performs Istredd. Istredd’s return in”The Witcher” season 2 is timely given the existence of the elves because he’s a specialist on the elven history and elven historical websites. He will allegedly be meeting Geralt at some stage in the story.
