The Witcher accomplished a lot in its great first season on Netflix. The fantasy series juggled multiple timelines as it followed three main characters’ journeys towards one another. It immersed us in the Continent, a land of magic and monsters on the brink of all-out war. Plus, it featured some epic fight scenes and amazing costumes. And as though that weren’t enough, it also gave us one of the greatest fictional songs ever. Now Netflix is bringing fans behind the scenes to learn how it all came together, with its new documentary Making The Witcher.
Fans of white-haired monster hunters and alluring mages will get a chance to learn even more about the show with the new doc Making The Witcher. It includes interviews with its titular star and huge dork Henry Cavill, as well as cast members Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, and Joey Batey. Viewers will also get to hear from the amazing crew behind the camera, including from showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.
The documentary will also show the fight training that went into bringing its memorable showdowns to the screen. And viewers will also get to see the work that went into making the series’ terrifying monsters. The show combined VFX with practical effects from its incredible makeup artists. We’ll also learn how some costume parts were built specifically to withstand physical contact, so Geralt of Rivia could really do his thing.
But the documentary will go beyond the physical tasks the show had to overcome. We’ll also get to learn more about how the writers juggled three main characters all on their own adventures through different timelines.
And all of that will help us deal with our own timeline issues. We still aren’t exactly sure when we’ll see season two of The Witcher. But Making The Witcher is available on Netflix now.
