Another seven The Witcher Season 2 cast members have been announced by Netflix, and the group includes familiar faces from Bridgerton and The Hobbit.

The castings were announced on The Witcher's Twitter account with a description for each character and their respective actor.

Bridgerton actor Adjoa Andoh is joining as Nenneke, who acts as a mother to Geralt in the books. She doesn't appear in any of The Witcher games, but she does get a small shoutout in The Witcher 3 (opens in new tab).

Graham McTavish, who played Dwalin in The Hobbit trilogy of films, will be taking on the role of Dijkstra. The spymaster makes an appearance in several quests in The Witcher 3, being a huge crime lord in Novigrad.

Cassie Clare joins as Philippa Eilhart, a shape-shifting sorceress and head of the Lodge of Sorceresses. Mage Rience will be played by fellow Bridgerton alum Chris Fulton, and Kevin Doyle will play Ba'Lian, a character original to the Netflix show. Finally, partners-in-crime Codringher and Fenn are played by writer, director, and actor Simon Callow and actor, comedian, and disability activist Liz Carr.

The Witcher Season 2 is currently slated to premiere sometime this year, after suffering some delays due to the global pandemic and Henry Cavill sustaining a small injury in December 2020. Here's everything we know about the second season, including the other cast members announced so far.

A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer's RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn't get up to too much mischief on the site. She's not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She's been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she's been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she's currently hopelessly fixated on. There's a good chance she's boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
