As per the sources, six new cast members were added to the upcoming chapter, The Witcher Season 3; continuous additions were made to the cast this summer.
The team of The Witcher Season 3 is working very hard in the dunes of the Sahara near Erfoud, Morocco. Besides that, there has been shooting in Longcross Studios as well. Just last week, Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra, and Freya Allan were filming in South Wales.
While we have to wait for news from the Moroccan shoot, there have been new additions to the cast; continue reading to learn more about Witcher Season 3 characters.
Ryan Hayes as Artaud Terranova
Ryan Hayes has been cast to play the mage Artaud Terranova in The Witcher Season 3. Per the books, Terranova was one of the mages who was a part of the Thanedd coup and was determined to capture Ciri at all costs.
We can think of Terranova’s fate to be pre-written as he can be considered a chopping block whose ultimate fate is to die a devastating death. It is speculated because the show already has mages.
But one thing is for sure we will see Artaud Terranova as The Witcher Season 3 ends; however, the possibility of Stregobor, played by Lars Mikkelsen, dying in place of Ryan Hayes as Artaud Terranova is a real one.

Michalina Olszanska as a sorceress
As of now, who Michalina Olszanska will play in The Witcher Season 3 is not confirmed. But she is going to play the part of a mage (name not known) and was seen filming in Wales last week with other mages like Safiyya Ingar and Mahesh Jadu. At the time of Witcher Season 2, one complaint that was pondered around by the Polish viewers was that the show did not have enough representation when it comes to the cast. The book series being of Polish origin, people expected more Polish representation.
Lauren Hissrich then explained that it was impossible to cast many new Polish actors/actresses because the global pandemic was still at its height and promised to look into it in The Witcher Season 3; hence they cast Michalina Olszanska.
Others who are rumored to join The Witcher Season 3 cast
Others who are rumored to join Witcher Season 3 cast are- Martyn Ellis, who will play Barker; Kate Winter, who will play Putney; Harvey Quinn, whose role is not confirmed yet but is going to play a mage probably because his scenes included many mages; and Poppy Almond whose role is not confirmed yet but is involved with mages too.
The Witcher Season 3 is in production until September 2022 and is eyed for a release in 2023. And the prequel ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ is in post-production after two weeks of reshoots and can have a release on or around Christmas 2022.
