The Witcher: Henry Cavill Shares New Update on His Injury

The Witcher's Henry Cavill, who portrays protagonist Geralt of Rivia in the popular Netflix show, has provided a new update on his injury over on Instagram a few weeks after providing his first post update on the injury he suffered two weeks before Christmas whilst filming for the series. The new update is light on details overall, but it does reveal that Cavill has been working extremely hard to ensure his physical rehabilitation is successful.

More specifically, the Instagram post -- which has racked up nearly 2.4 million likes in one day -- reveals that Cavill wakes up at 4:30 a.m. Monday through Friday in order to get "a few hours" of rehab in before his official workday starts.

According to Cavill, "some mornings are rough," however, the snow has made the process more enjoyable, and because he's up so early, he's been treated to quite a few sunrises.

"Monday to Friday I'm up at 0430 to get a few hours rehab in before my work day starts," said Cavill. "Some mornings are rough, but I do always get to see the dawn by the time I'm finishing up. The snow made this one even more enjoyable, if not a touch chilly!"

For those that don't know: Cavill's injury was a hamstring injury. At the time, it was unclear how serious the hamstring injury was, and it's still unclear, but it forced Cavill off the set. Typically, hamstring issues aren't very serious, but come with a fear of reaggravation, which can and often happen if you rush through the rehab process.

As for the show itself, it's still currently filming, and there's no word of when Season 2 will release. What's also unclear is how much of a setback -- if any -- Cavill's injury has caused the show. We do know the pandemic has disrupted filming more than once, but right now fans are still hopeful the second season will release this year.
