Season 3 of hit fantasy series The Witcher will be introducing a few new faces – and Netflix has confirmed some of the newcomers joining the cast.Â
Robbie Amell (Upload, Code 8, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City), Meng’er Zhang (Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings), Hugh Skinner (Mamma Mia Here We Go Again!, Fleabag), and Christelle Elwin (Half Bad, Bloods) have officially signed up for the third season.
Who exactly are they playing? We got you. Netflix has released the following character descriptions:
- Gallatin (Robbie Amell)
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 over power.
- Milva (Meng’er Zhang)
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.
- Prince Radovid (Hugh Skinner)
Character description: 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.
- Mistle (Christelle Elwin)
Character description: 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 third season will find Geralt (Henry Cavill) taking Ciri of Cintra (Freya Allan) into hiding, determined to protect her from the monarchs, mages, and beasts of the Continent competing to capture her. Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, takes them to the protected fortress of Aretuza in the hopes of discovering more about the girl’s untapped powers. Alas, what they discover instead is a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and treachery. They soon realise they must put everything on the line and fight back “” or risk losing each other forever.
