Production on Netflix’s The Witcher season 2 has begun, and here are all the new characters that will be included in the series. It’s no wonder, then, that the series was renewed for a second season before being released for the first time. Netflix knew what it had on this witch, although it wasn’t exactly ready to “flip your witch a coin.”
The Witcher introduced the audience to Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), a magically advanced monster hunter known as the “Witch”; Vangerberg’s Yanfer (Anea Schlotra), a powerful sorceress; And Princess Ciri (Freya Allen), granddaughter of Queen Calanthe of Cintra and who has her own magical powers.
The world of The Witcher is known in large part due to its video game adaptations, which is why it already had a pretty solid fanbase, and the series expanded further. Like, there are plenty of characters expected to be seen in The Witcher season 2, and Netflix has already shared the names of some of the new cast members and the characters they play. Sadly, there is one major absentee who has been campaigning for fans: Vesmir, Geralt’s patron. While they may not all have been revealed yet, it has been confirmed that every new character here will appear in The Witcher season 2 thus far.

Kristofer Hivju as Nivellen
Nivelane was the leader of a band of highwaymen and Cutthroats, who were assigned roles after his father was assassinated. One day, after raping a young priest during a robbery, he was cursed for being “a monster in the skin of a man”, for which he would become a “monster in the skin of a monster”. The result was a metamorphosis curse similar to Bust in Beauty and the Beast. There is a cure, of course, but he didn’t quite understand it. He has a history with another new character, Verena, and appeared in only one story (“A Grain of Truth”, in The Last Wish). Neville will be played by Christopher Hive, best known for playing Tormund Giantsbane on Game of Thrones.
Paul Bullion as Lambert
Geralt won’t be the only witch in season 2, as the series adds three more to the mix. First, Lambert, who is one of the youngest warlocks in Caer Moren and one of the last people to train there. Lambert first appeared in the book Blood of Elves and has since participated in other stories, as well as video games.
Lambert is known for his attitude and impatience, and he is very ill (he was particularly rude to Tris Marigold), but he plays an important role in Giri’s life as he trains her in the art of war. Hey? Lambert will be played by Paul Bullion, best known for his role as Billy Kitchen in Yellow Blinders.
