Netflix’s The Witcher season two has had its fair share of complications of late. After having to halt production due to COVID-19, season two resumed filming again in August but now it seems that this deadly virus is back again to make things more complicated on the set of The Witcher. Thue Rasmussen, the actor who played Eskel in The Witcher series, had to drop out of the show because the schedule got changed due to the coronavirus with actor Basil Eidenbenz then taking his place. Thankfully though, the much-anticipated season two seems to be well underway and today, we get a first look at Henry Cavill, who plays Geralt of Rivia, in his brand new threads.

In the images shared by showrunner for Netflix’s The Witcher, Lauren S. Hissrich, and also the official Twitter account for the series we see Henry show off some swanky new armor. His black attire adorned with a leather breastplate and held together with later straps and studs looks like Geralt is ready for a whole hell of a lot of trouble and he sure does fill it out rather well, too. Netflix’s The Witcher Twitter account also shared a few words of wisdom to go along with Geralt’s new look. “His emotional shield can ward off any charmer, but his trusted sword he’ll wield will be matched with new armour.”

You can check out Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia in season two of The Witcher in the images below but we aren’t responsible for how these pictures may affect you.

The Witcher: Blood Originthe prequel series which was announced back in July, is set to become even bigger with the introduction of a group of talented writers known for a wide range of works ranging from Swamp Thing, Carnival Row, Moon Knight, Snowpiercer, Mandy, Iron Fist, and many more. Also, even more importantly, the writer’s come from a wide and diverse background meaning that the variety of ideas and creative input will lead to an even greater experience for the show. According to news site Redanian Intelligence, Netflix is looking to cast Aquaman and Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa as the lead character in The Witcher: Blood Origin.
