More Characters From the Books
The production of The Witcher Season 3 is underway. Many actors from the earlier seasons have returned to the set. Recently, Netflix has announced a handful of new actors being introduced in the upcoming season. They include Robbie Amell, Meng’er Zhang, Christelle Elwin, and Hugh Skinner.
You may know Robbie Amell from the recent Resident Evil movie, where he played Chris Redfield. He also had a role as Firestorm in The Flash TV show. Amell will be playing Gallatin. He is described as “a fighter who leads an army of guerrilla Scoia’tael fighting on behalf of Nilfgaard“.
Meng’er Zhang played Xu Xialing, Shang-Chi’s sister in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Zhang will be playing Milva, who is a human huntress from the forest of Brokilon. The forest of Brokilon was visited briefly in season 1 of The Witcher by Ciri and Dara.
THE WITCHER Season 3 cast is getting even bigger:

Hugh Skinner will be playing Prince Radovid. There are five different Redania monarchs named Radovid, so it is unclear which one Skinner is portraying.
Christelle Elwin will be playing Mistle. Mistle is a member of the Rats, a gang that Ciri joins briefly, which may give some hints about the arc of The Witcher Season 3.
There is currently no given premiere date for The Witcher Season 3. Hopefully, it will follow the pattern of the first two and be available for streaming in December.
