Season 2 of The Witcher will be accompanied by its share of new names. If we already knew that Yasen Atour (Young Wallander), Agnes Born (Monster), Paul Bullion (Peaky Blinders), Basil Eidenbenz (X Company), Aisha Fabienne Ross, Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones) and Mecia Simson would take part in the new episodes of the Netflix series, the streaming service has just announced the addition of seven more names.
Adjoa Andoh (Bridgerton) will play Nenneka, a priestess who proves to be a mother figure to many travelers who find refuge at the temple of Melitele. Among the travelers she has treated is a man named Geralt (Henry Cavill). Cassie Clare (Delicious) will play Philippa Eilhart, one of King Vizimir’s top advisors. Both charming and devious, she is one of the most influential witches in the politics of the Continent.
Graham McTavish (Outlander) will play the character of Dijkstra. As the head of the Redanian secret service, he is known to all the undesirable people on the Continent. He has a perfect knowledge of kings and mages and gets whatever he wants. Kevin Doyle, known from Downton Abbey, will be Ba’Lian, an elf who escaped the violent raids of the North and seeks refuge in unexpected places on the Continent. Brave and principled, he will cross paths with many surprising characters who will be inspired by his stubborn refusal to surrender without a fight.
Chris Fulton (Clique) has been cast as Rience, a sadistic mage with a penchant for fire who is employed by a mysterious lord to hunt down a prized jewel. His cruel tactics leave traces wherever he goes.
Finally, Simon Callow (The Company) and Liz Carr (Cold Case) will play Codringher and Fenn, partners in crime solving. Codringher is the face of their company while Fenn focuses on research. Both will be confronted with a mystery of unprecedented magnitude.
Season 2 is still in production. The airing date of the new episodes is not yet known.
