It was also scheduling conflicts because of the fact that after travel, people had to quarantine and certain members of the cast, like Matthew Goode and Trystan Gravelle, the original Baldwin, had future commitments to projects.

That is why Peter McDonald replaced Trystan in season 3 because the schedule/quarantine did not allow for Trystan to do both ADOW S3 and his new project, "The Lord of the Rings", series which was filming in New Zealand.

The comments scare me. The book had a lot of action and I am afraid it won't be action-packed or that the action will be super rushed and consolidated

If Goode was contracted to do DOW first shouldn't that have meant he would've had to drop out of the other project?

^ No, a contract is a contract that he signed on for, as did Trystan. Both contracts have to be honoured, which is why it went from 10 episodes to 7. That's on the studio, not the actors.

I feel like whatever is signed onto first should take precedence. He was involved in DOW first so that contract / 10 eps should be honored. Sorry that you have to lose out on the other part, but don't let one show lose out because you took on another job.
So many times actors say they had to pull out of a role because of scheduling conflicts. I don't see why DOW lost out because of it.

It was the pandemic and budget that cut it down to 7.

The studio didn't have a choice. They had to pay to implement Covid measures to protect the cast. That was costly and was why the episode count was cut.

Why do we need another LotR?

I agree.

It's like, if I tell one homeowner I'll build your deck and put in a pool. And they got the contract first and then I tell another homeowner I'll do their deck and pool too, I got to fulfill my contract with the first house before moving on. I can't leave that deck and pool half finished.

I know I am being totally selfish, but I say sacrifice another show or shows. Like no new shows until past series are completed. And pool that budget into properly finishing a series you started. Like you know ADOW is the last season and it has a BIG following, so put off other new shows for a year or two.

This is as bad as when the writers' strike messed things up.

I dropped a few shows because of that strike.

It's a prequel series.

I like the cemetery. It's atmospheric.

That is the Goblin King's jacket!

I do like the art.

Does season 3 have anyone else spellbound?

10 minutes to go until episode 2 of #ADiscoveryofWitches premieres on Sky Max... and things get a little heated...!

Does absence always make the heart grow fonder?
