The Witcher Season 2 also stars Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Eamon Farren as Cahir, and Joey Batey as Jaskier. It's based on the book series by Andrzej Sapkowski, which in turn inspired the popular video game series. The showrunner for Season 2 is Lauren Schmidt Hissrich once more.

WitcherCon takes place today, July 9. It features interviews with the cast of the show, including Cavill, Chalotra, and Allan, plus Schmidt Hissrich and the developers of the game series.

Throughout the rest of WitcherCon, numerous images from Season 2 of The Witcher were also revealed, and the anime series The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf got its first teaser as well.

Netflix is also making a prequel series titled The Witcher: Blood Origin, which will be a six-episode limited series set 1,200 years before the main show. This week it was announced that Star Trek Discovery's Michelle Yeoh and Giri/Haji star Sophia Brown had joined the cast. The Witcher: Blood Origin starts production later this year.
