Netflix has released a behind-the-scenes look at The Witcher. Launched on the streaming service on Wednesday, Making The Witcher is a half-hour show featuring interviews with the showrunners, cast and crew, as well as footage we haven't seen before.

The trailer shows Henry Cavill (Geralt) detailing how fight scenes that're shown on screen for just two minutes took 10 days of training to shoot. It also features showrunner Lauren Hissrich describing how she worked to tell all three stories of Geralt, Jennifer and Ciri at the same time.

We get a look at special effects, too, including physical props and prosthetics.

The Witcher season 1 came out in December 2019, with season 2 delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Production is slated to begin in August, and Netflix has also green-lit a prequel called Blood Origin, set 1,200 years before Geralt's story.

On Wednesday, a mobile game was also announced for The Witcher series. It'll be called The Witcher: Monster Slayer, and it aims to take on the augmented reality genre, much like Pokemon Go.
