The story of The Witcher is not new, as it has been inspired by a famous book series in Poland by Andrez Sapkowski. Though an adaptation of the 1990’s story, The Witcher is far from being close to the book.
Lauren Hissrich, the showrunner of The Witcher has confirmed fans that the timeline of Season would be less confusing than the first. However, she did not say there will be any fewer character additions. Kristofer Hivju from Game of Thrones has been confirmed to play the role of Nivellen in season 2 of the show.

Natalie Dormer has also been reported to have been moving around the set with a crew member and has been linked with a character of The Witcher on social media by one of the crew members.
There has been no confirmation yet however her presence in season 2 of The Witcher will not come as a shock to people. Given how she has been a part of the genre through her performance in Game of Thrones and Hunger Games.
Currently, Season 1 of The Witcher is streaming on Netflix and season 2 is being filmed for a scheduled release in 2021. Meanwhile, an anime film around the story is planned by Netflix to release soon named The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.
