The Witcher’s lead is Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter. The story revolves around Geralt and Princess Ciri, played by Freya Allen.
The series has adapted the novels in not so perfect order, showing plots from prequels and spinoffs.

The site ‘Redanian Intelligence’, that focuses on The Witcher and its information, has reported updates on the casting of the series from their sources many times since the shooting began. Some of the updates are as follows.
Who are the two new Sorceresses?
New members have been added to The Witcher family since April. Meng’er Zhang, the artist, known for playing Xialing in Shang-Chi, the Marvel movie that released in the latter half of 2021, has also been added to the cast.
Safiyya Ingar as Keira Metz
The production house has already announced about casting of Safiyya Ingar, but the role that she will be playing has not been disclosed. Redanian Intelligence’s sources, so far, believe that she will be playing the role of- sorceress Keira Metz. Keira Metz is a character of a woman on King Foltest of Temeria’s council.
Rochelle Rose as Margarita Laux-Antille
Another revelation of the cast has been about Rochelle Rose, who will potentially be playing Margarita Laux-Antille.
Laux-Antille is a sorceress who is a friend of Yennefer, played by Anya Chalotra.

The casting for The Witcher season 3 looks like being on the perfect path. If they keep recruiting actors and actresses at this rate, the upcoming season will be more mysterious and exciting.
