Although the fact of shooting the series in Poland most likely will not be confirmed, there are several strong clues suggesting that some of the scenes from series about the monster killer, based on the novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, are being created in Poland.

One of the actresses from its cast, Therica Wilson-Read, who will play sorceress Sabrina Glevissig, posted a story on her Instagram account with a short text: “Hello Poland.” Some fans also reported that they saw members of the film crew in Kraków, southern Poland.

Moreover, Lauren S. Hissrich, the showrunner of the “Witcher” series, has a photograph of Ogrodzieniec castle as the cover photo of her Twitter account.

One of the users of popular social media Reddit, who lives nearby the castle, has taken some photographs of the castle and described the situation there. One of the most important clues is the photo of a car with the sign “Film crew” under its windshield.
