The Reddit sub-forum dedicated to Netflix’s highly anticipated production has posted photos of the castles on their Twitter page:
We hear whispers that the show will be filming in Poland. Things point to Ogrodzieniec Castle being a location. The castle might be a ruin, but it still is beautiful. - It looks like a Witcher home... #TheWitcher #Witcher https://t.co/cx9G2EhWF8 pic.twitter.com/58R2QVnOE2— r/netflixwitcher (@netflixwitcher) 8 April 2019
This post has led to speculation, that the Ogrodzieniec Castle will be the set for the fabled stronghold of the Witchers – Kaer Morhen.
The castle has been closed to tourists, despite still having been open on Monday earlier this week. The site has also been surrounded with security staff.
The Reddit forum later posted photos from Ogrodzieniec Castle in which one can see a film crew at work:
A new video from Ogrodzieniec Castle has been found. - And what a video it is... Do you want to see Yennefer in costume, for example? That is in there, and quite a lot more... #TheWitcher #Witcher https://t.co/cJzLdGDoQi pic.twitter.com/Ywo0zP07lE— r/netflixwitcher (@netflixwitcher) 10 April 2019
Earlier this year and in 2018, the production team had been spotted shooting in Hungary and on the Spanish La Palma island.
The Netflix TV series is based on the best-selling novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The show is slated for a 2019 release and will debut with eight episodes.
