The Witcher is currently in the midst of shooting season 2 in Yorkshire, and the latest photos from the set reveal one of the original season's favorite duos. That would be Roach and Geralt, though we don't see them together just yet. The photos come from @DRAutoart (via Redanian Intelligence) and show Zeus, the horse that plays Roach in the series, looking quite regal. As for Geralt, we get two glimpses of our favorite Witcher, including one at the door of his trailer and another one as he is walking on the set under an umbrella. You can check out all the images below.
The other big revelation is the crew cleaning up fake blood off of Roach, which means that either Roach was in the middle of a battle and got hit or that Geralt was hit and got some on him since rarely does anyone else interact with Roach.
Netflix has been filming just outside of my studio door all week! The Witcher season 2. Caught a glimpse of Geralt of Rivia a few times & watched them clean the (fake) blood off Roach! Pretty special 🐺 #thewitcher #geraltofrivia #geralt #witcher #roach #netflix #henrycavill pic.twitter.com/nGTMBJvjWu— DR AutoArt (@DRAutoart) October 30, 2020
We hope it's not the former because honestly, I don't think my heart could take it.

Hopefully, we'll get a look at both of them in the same scene soon, whether that is in set photos or via actual footage from the show via a new trailer.
