Netflix has just officially announced that the filming of the second season of The Witcher has officially started. The premiere of new episodes is planned for 2021. Additionally, we found out which actors and actresses will join the cast of the show. Interestingly, we still don't know who will play Vesemir.
As you can see, recent leaks about who will play the roles of witchers Lambert and Cohen have been confirmed. These will be Paul Bullion and Yasen Atour respectively (now officially). Eskel will be played by Thue Ersted Rasmussen (known from Skytten and Dicte). Also, the information that the star of Game of Thrones, Kristofer Hivju, will play the role of Nivellen, known from the short story A Grain of Truth, turned out to be true. The role of his beloved Vereena will be played by Agnes Born (Monster). They will be accompanied by Aisha Fabienne Ross (as Lydia van Bredevoort, assistant sorceress of Vilgefortz) and Mecia Simson (as Francesca Findabair, elven sorceress). Below, you will find pictures of those actors and actresses that we have not written about before.
The directors of each episode of the new season will be Stephen Surjik (Umbrella Academy), Sarah O'Gorman (Mi adorable maldición), Ed Bazalgette (The Last Kingdom) and Geeta V. Patel ( Meet The Patel)
At the end it's worth reminding that yesterday we could see some new photos from the second season's set taken by a fan, showing actors dressed as Scoia'tael elves. However, a few days earlier it was reported that Mads Mikkelsen and Michael Keaton had rejected the role of Vesemir. According to data from February 17, this year, The Witcher is still the most popular TV series in the world even a few weeks after its premiere. Thanks to the NPD analytics group, we learned that the title has boosted the sales of the video game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and books by Andrzej Sapkowski (on which the TV production is based) by 500%.
