It's hard to believe how quiet it has become around the second season of Netflix's The Witcher in recent weeks. Previously we could at most see the new Nilfgaard armor from a closer shot, and after more than three weeks we received another casting news.
Redanian Intelligence reports that Natasha Fletcher, an actress associated with modeling, has joined the cast. She will play a priestess from the Temple of Melitele, whose name we don't know yet. It will be a supporting role, if not an episodic one.
The series will also feature someone a little more important among Ellander the priestesses, namely Nenneke, who often heals Geralt's wounds in the books. She will be one of Ciri's tutors and teachers. It has not yet been confirmed who will play the role of the heroine, but Julie Barclay (Pride) is mainly mentioned.
That's not the end of casting news, as Jo Mariott (Robin Hood) and Darius James (mostly theater career) will also join the cast. They will take on the roles of General Hake and General Gerhen, the latter leading the Nilgaard troops under Cahir's command.
These are not particularly high-profile names, but they do add to the list of actors for The Witcher season 2. We don't know when exactly to expect its premiere, as the coronavirus and Henry Cavill' s injury have somewhat messed up the schedule.
