If you have been keeping your Witcher ear to the ground, you will have probably seen Geralt of Rivia’s swanky new armor that he gets to don for Netflix’s The Witcher Season 2. In the images shown at the start of the month, we saw The White Wolf in his brand new threads of black attire adorned with a leather breastplate and leather straps. Of course, that wasn’t all the images we got to see and as a follow-up, some shots of Yennefer appeared in chains and another of Ciri wielding a sword. As The Witcher Season 2 is still underway, a few snaps of familiar faces from Season one have been caught as they roam the set of the medieval ruins of Fountains Abbey in Yorkshire, England.

As seen in Redanian Intelligence, Sorceress Tissaia de Vries played by MyAnna Buring, Stregobor by actor Lars Mikkelsen, Therica Wilson-Read, Sorceress Sabrina, and Vilgefortz, mage and member of the Chapter of Sorcerers played by Mahesh Jadu have been spotted walking alongside Anya Chalotra who plays Yennefer between takes. An unfamiliar and yet unidentified face also has been seen with Therica Wilson-Read which could hint at a brand new mage joining the team. What is interesting though is that we also notice a bushy-bearded Cahir (Cahir Mawr Dyffryn aep Ceallach) played by Eamon Farren who looks to be bare-chested under his shirt which could mean that he may have become imprisoned in the aftermath of the Battle of Sodden. This is in stark contrast to a recent picture of him in a new black and golden Nilfgaardian armor.

The picture of the mages regrouped could very well mean that many are still going strong after the chaotic ending we saw at the end of The Witcher Season one but we will just have to wait and see how this all plays out in Season Two which will hopefully be back on our screens at some point next year. For those who are looking more into the future of The Witcher, you’ll be glad to know that Season three has already been greenlit so Witcher fans will be delighted to have the show continue even when Season Two ends.

Henry Cavill has also been spotted recently as he prepares for lockdown in England by leaving the beautiful deals of Yorkshire to travel south to continue filming in the studio. On Henry’s Instagram, he posted a picture of himself wearing a mask with his adorable doggy and the words “Thank you for hosting all of us on season 2 of The Witcher. Hopefully, I shall return to your hills, dales and fields soon. Stay strong and stay safe, my friends.”

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Also, even more importantly, the writer’s come from a wide and diverse background meaning that the variety of ideas and creative input will lead to an even greater experience for the show. According to news site Redanian Intelligence, Netflix is looking to cast Aquaman and Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa as the lead character in The Witcher: Blood Origin.
