Be prepared to have that catchy tune in your head again folks as the second season of The Witcher gets ever closer to landing on Netflix.
Though we’re yet to have an official start date for Season Two of the fantasy series, Netflix has unveiled the above image of Henry Cavill (Batman Vs Superman) in the titular role and now a host of new castmates will be joining him.
These include Adjoa Andoh (Bridgerton) in the role of Nenneke, Cassie Clare (The Irregulars) in the role of Phillippa Eilhart, Liz Carr (Devs) in the role of Fenn, Graham McTavish (Outlander) in the role of Dijkstra, Kevin Doyle (Downton Abbey) in the role of Ba’lian, Simon Callow (The Man Who Invented Christmas) in the role of Codringher and Chris Fulton (Bridgerton) in the role of Rience.
Previously announced new cast for Season Two: Yasen Atour (Young Wallander) as Coen, Agnes Born (Just A Thought) as Vereena, Paul Bullion (Dracula Untold) as Lambert, Basil Eidenbenz (Denial) as Eskel, Aisha Fabienne Ross (Alleycats) as Lydia, Kristofer Hivju (Game Of Thrones) as Nivellen, Mecia Simson (Brave New World) as Francesca, and Kim Bodnia (Punisher) as Vesemir.
They all join Cavill and the rest of Season One’s returning cast members, Anya Chalotra (Wanderlust), Freya Allan (The War Of The Worlds), Joey Batey (Knightfall), MyAnna Buring (The Descent), Tom Canton (Truth Seekers), Eamon Farren (Twin Peaks), Mahesh Jadu (Marco Polo), Terence Maynard (Cursed), Lars Mikkelsen (Star Wars: Rebels), Royce Pierreson (The Irregulars), and Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince).
Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, The Witcher Season Two finds Geralt of Rivia bringing Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.
The Witcher Season Two will be coming soon to Netflix.
