It looks like Netflix is doing everything that they can to hype up The Witcher season 3. Why else would we get news of these new cast members for this third season?

New Comrades for Geralt, or New Enemies?

The wind is very convenient on the Continent, it seems. just released a report revealing that Netflix has added 4 new cast members for The Witcher season 3. The details they have also reveal who these new cast members will play in the Netflix series, and a bit of their characterization. The list goes as below:

Robbie Amell (Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City) as Gallatin

I swear, he looks exactly like a stereotypical action hero star.

Gallatin synopsis: “A born fighter, Gallatin leads an army of guerrilla Scoia’tael fighting on behalf of Nilfgaard. Unafraid to speak his truth, Gallatin’s loyalty to his people ultimately leads him on a collision course with Francesca overpower.”

Meng’er Zhang (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) as Milva

I can totally believe that dryads raised her to be a warrior.

Milva synopsis: “A human adopted by the dryads of Brokilon Forest, Milva is a fierce and talented huntress. Exact archery skills coupled with a stone-cold aptitude for survival make her a formidable adversary in the unforgiving Continent – those that cross her, do so at their peril.”

Hugh Skinner (Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!) as Prince Radovid

Hmm, he kind of looks like a scruffy smuggler instead of a prince.

Prince Radovid synopsis: “Royal playboy and younger brother to King Vizimir, Radovid finds himself suddenly a man on the inside of the Redanian Intelligence. With his good looks and often drunken charm, Radovid surprises with how incisive he can be in matters of politics, but it’s all games until someone gets hurt.”

Christelle Elwin (Bloods) as Mistle

Yeah, I can totally imagine her being a streetwise Robin Hood.

Mistle: “Mistle is a member of The Rats, a gang of misfit teenagers who steal from the rich and give to themselves – and sometimes the poor. She is street hard, suspicious of everyone, and out for revenge, until a chance meeting that will change everything.”

The Witcher: Details

Even in a medieval fantasy, they can always find a way to work in explosions.

The Witcher is the Netflix live-action adaptation of the novel series of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski. The series stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, along with Freya Allan as Ciri. Thus far, the series stands at 2 seasons, 16 episodes long; but with the addition of this third season, we’re going to get a much higher episode count. Unfortunately, we don’t know when season 3 will premiere yet. Check back later with us for that info later.

As for what The Witcher is about? Well, Netflix has an official synopsis that explains a bit more. Check it out below:

“Geralt of Rivia, a mutated monster-hunter for hire, journeys toward his destiny in a turbulent world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.”

You can watch The Witcher only on Netflix. I mean it. It’s a Netflix exclusive, so you can’t watch it anywhere else. If you don’t already have a Netflix subscription, you’re going to need to pay up for one. Netflix is many things, but a free subscription is not.
