'The Witcher' Adds Seven New Cast Members for Season Two

The Witcher is adding some exciting new characters to its second season!

The Hollywood Reporter writes that actors from Bridgerton, Outlander and Downton Abbey have all joined the cast of the upcoming season.

Here’s a plot summary: “Convinced Yennefer’s (Anya Chalotra) life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) brings Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) 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.”
