Netflix's Witcher TV series season one filming has successfully ended it's been confirmed by the series' main star Henry Cavill in his Instagram post. The series should now enter post-production before the release sometime in late 2019.

Netflix's Witcher is one of the most anticipated TV series of the year regardless if you're a fan of the novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, the games trilogy by CD Projekt Red or just love Netflix's tv series.

It's been confirmed earlier that the filming is almost done and some actors have wrapped up the work on their roles but today, the series' main star Henry Cavill confirmed that season one filming is officially done and dusted.

In an Instagram post, Cavill shared a photo from the set where sits in his makeup chair and while the photo is quite interesting, the caption is what brings the new details. 

"Season 1 of The Witcher has finally come to an end," Cavill wrote and added that it's been an incredible journey and how proud he is of the crew that worked tirelessly on the project.

"Jacqui, Ailbhe and Leah are consummate professionals who worked extraordinary hours to bring the Witcher to life, they were non stop improving adjusting and evolving Geralt throughout," Cavill thanked his makeup artists.

The series' showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich also confirmed on her own Twitter that the filming has come to an end, joking that she has enough grey hair to take Cavill's Geralt role.

"That’s a wrap on season one! I have enough grey hair to play Geralt now, but it’s been the best year of my life. So grateful to the writers, the cast, and the exceptional crew who worked their asses off to make the Continent come to life," Hissrich wrote in her tweet.

Netflix's Wicher is now set for post-production, where special effects and CGI will be added where needed. As for the release date, Netflix's Chief Content Officer, Ted Sarandos earlier confirmed that The Witcher TV series will come to Netflix sometime in Q4 2019.

However, NSFW website Recapped, which leaked that Geralt will be played by Henry Cavill and Anya Chalotra as Yennefer claim that the first season will go live on Netflix on 20 December 2019.

Of course, take this with a grain of salt, but the rumour certainly aligns with Q4 2019 confirmation by Netflix. The Witcher TV series season one will have eight episodes and the show has already been greenlit for season two, which should start filming in December 2019 or January 2020, again according to Recapped.
