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.”

Fans of Andrzej Sapkowski‘s series will recognize some of the new characters on the show from their appearances in the books and video games, though their plotlines for season 2 have not been confirmed.

'Bridgerton' Is Netflix's Most-Watched Show Ever, Beating 'The Witcher'!

Netflix has a new hit show – Bridgerton! The period drama has surpassed previous most-watched drama The Witcher in the ratings.

In the first 28 days on the streaming service, 82 million households have viewed the show, vs The Witcher‘s initial numbers which came out to 76 million views in 28 days.

THR did some math, however, and it still seems like The Witcher could be considered their most-watched show. When The Witcher debuted in December 2019, Netflix had just over 169 million subscribers. That would equal about 45% of streamer members watching the series. With the growth of subscribers to when Bridgerton debuted, that would only make Bridgerton‘s debut equal about 40% of subscribers.

Meanwhile, be sure to find out the most popular show on Netflix in 2020 – it’s a huge surprise!

Here’s a synopsis from Deadline: “Set in an elven world 1,200 years before the world of The Witcher, Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time – the creation of the first prototype Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal ‘conjunction of the spheres,’ when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.”

Jodie will portray the role of Éile, “an elite warrior blessed with the voice of a goddess, who has left her clan and position as Queen’s guardian to follow her heart as a nomadic musician.”

The show will be a six-part limited series. Henry Cavill‘s The Witcher is a smash-hit show on Netflix. Unfortunately, the show hit a bit of a snag a few weeks ago!
