Delayed seasons of ‘The Witcher’ and ‘You’ will return later this year – Deadline

The witcher and You – two of Netflix’s biggest dramas – suffered delays from Covid-19 but there is light at the end of the tunnel for fans.

Co-CEO and chief content officer Ted Sarandos revealed on the company’s investor video for its first quarter financial results that new seasons of both shows will launch in the fourth quarter of the year.

They will be joined by the fourth season of Cobra Kai, the first season produced specifically for Netflix, and the feature films Red Notice and Escape Spiderhead.

“What happened in the first part of this year is that a lot of the projects that we were hoping to get out sooner were pushed because of post-production delays and Covid delays and we believe that we will be back to a much more stable state in the second half of the year, certainly in the fourth quarter where we have the return seasons of some of our most popular shows like The witcher and You and Cobra Kai as well as some great tentpole movies that hit the market a bit slower than we had hoped Red Notice and Escape Spiderhead,” he said.

The witcher wrapped up production for its second season earlier this month. The show has been in production for over a year and has been one of the company’s most high-profile series to be delayed in the UK.

Filming for season two begins in February 2020, but production ceased shortly thereafter due to the coronavirus pandemic. Planning delays led to the exit of Thue Rasmussen and the recasting of Basil Eidenbenz as the popular role of Witcher Eskel. Production resumed in August 2020, but was halted again in November due to several positive cases of Covid-19.

The epic fantasy drama stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, a lone monster hunter who struggles to find his place in a world where people often turn out to be meaner than beasts. Lauren Schmidt Hissrich is showrunner.

The first season launched on December 20, 2019.

You was renewed for a third season in January 2020. The show, which stars Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti, was in production in Los Angeles in December when the last Covid shutdown hit, meaning the return of production after the Christmas holidays was delayed later in January.

The second season of You, which was co-created by Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti and is based on the best-selling books by Caroline Kepnes, which launched on December 26, 2019.
