Fan Favorite Netflix series The Witcher will be returning with a new season in December and it’s coming with a list of new characters from Andrzej Sapkowski novels, and also a new character made only for the Netflix series. So, we made a list of every new cast member and their character joining the cast of The Witcher Season 2.
Kristofer Hivju as Nivellen
Kristofer Hivju will be taking over the role of Nivellen, he was a cursed man living in Redania, in the woods near Murivel. He was referred to as Fanger or Degen by the locals who used to tell tales about his monstrous nature to children in order to scare them, but after a long conversation with Geralt, the Witcher decides that he is not a monster because he can touch silver and the witcher’s medallion without any bad effects. Hivju is mostly known for his role in Game of Thrones in which he played Tormund.
Agnes Bjorn as Vereena
Agnes Bjorn will be playing the role of Vereena, a powerful Bruxa who falls in love with Nivellen, but because of her nature, this relationship wasn’t much good for Nivellen. Both Nivellen and Vereena were originally introduced in the short story “A Grain of Truth” in which they both have an encounter with Geralt.
Graham McTavish as Dijkstra
Graham McTavish will be appearing in The Witcher Season 2 as Sigismund Dijkstra, who was the head of the Redanian Intelligence. He was a physically imposing man with a height of nearly seven feet and a bald head and a little fat around his waist. Dijkstra was a spy, but he never dressed like one, rather he wore bright colors and easy to notice dresses, he was a genius and very clever, finishing his studies at Oxenfurt Academy. In the public’s eye, he was a count but in reality that was just a cover given to him by King Vizimir II so that nobody would know that he was just a mere commoner. McTavish is known for his role in the series Outlander.
Adjoa Andoh as Nenneke
Adjoa Andoh will be playing the head of the Temple of Melitele Nenneke, she had a very close and motherly relation with Geralt and she was kind of a mentor to Lola and Jarre.

Paul Bullion as Lambert
Paul Bullion will be portraying the role of Lambert, a witcher trained by Vesemir and from the School of the Wolf, he was active in the 13th century and he was known for his rudeness often with Triss Merigold. He didn’t get into politics mainly due to the witcher’s code of neutrality.
Yasen Atour as Coën
Yasen Atour will be taking on the role of Coën, a witcher from the School of the Griffin, he was originally from Poviss and the same age as Lambert. He had scars on his face from chickenpox which apparently he contracted early on in his childhood because all of the witchers are immunized. Coën spent his first winter at Kaer Morhen, where he trained Ciri in sword combat with Geralt.

Thue Ersted Rasmussen will be Eskel in the upcoming season of the Netflix series. Eskel was also a witcher from the School of the Wolf and he was also trained by Vesemir.
