The Witcher season two starting filming in the United Kingdom on February 17, and fans have been logging into social media for casting announcements and sneak peaks for behind the scenes in the UK.

Last week seven new cast members, and the directors, were revealed for the next season. Speculation on who would be playing the iconic witcher, Vesemir, have kept fans on tenterhooks for months! But yesterday Netflix officially announced that Kim Bodnia would be joining the cast as Geralt of Rivia’s mentor, trainer, and the oldest witcher at Kaer Morhen.

Kim Bodnia is  well-known for his role as detective Martin Rohde in the Scandinavian crime drama The Bridge and more recently for his role as Konstantin on Killing Eve.

He joins other witchers to the cast for season two: Paul Bullion as Lambert, Thue Ersted Rasmussen as Eskel, Yasen Atour as Coën, and of course, Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia.  Paul Bullion took to Twitter Saturday to express his delight in The Witcher ensemble:

We have a long wait ahead until season two is released sometime in 2021. While waiting, stream season one of The Witcher on Netflix and catch up on all The Witcher news on Twitter.
