Six other actors have also been cast for Season 2 including Paul Bullion (Peaky Blinders) as the witcher Lambert; Yasen Atour (Young Wallender) as Coën, a witcher from Poviss; Agnes Bjorn as Vereena, a powerful bruxa; Thue Ersted Rasmussen (Fast and Furious 9) as Eskel, Geralt's friend from his youth; Aisha Fabienne Ross (The Danish Girl) as Lydia, a sorceress; and Mecia Simson (Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model) as the preternaturally lovely elf Francesca.

Stephen Surjik, who has directed two episodes of The Witcher, indicated on Instagram that filming has indeed got underway.

"It's T minus 3 min to ignition and lift off for our second run at Witcher S2", he wrote.

Both the producer and a director working on The Witcher have confirmed that production on season two has resumed, albeit with plenty of social distancing measures in place. "You're looking [at our] new COVID communication system, reducing close contact among crew", the director says, thanking Netflix and other members of The Witcher team.

After Netflix put work on hold for The Witcher over growing concerns regarding the pandemic a few months ago, production has finally resumed. That may seem an overly optimistic assumption, but every cause for hope helps.

The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Aretuza, and Millie Brady as Princess Renfri, with Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read as novice sorcerers.
