Skinner will portray the royal playboy and younger brother to King Vizimir (Ed Birch), Prince Radovid. In season three, he suddenly finds himself on the inside of the Redanian Intelligence. Surprisingly his good looks and drunken charm helps him survive and it’s all games until someone gets hurt. Finally, Elwin will be playing Mistle, a member of a gang of misfits known as The Rats. Unlike Robin Hood, they steal from the rich and keep it for themselves. Mistle is on a mission of revenge that leads her into a chance encounter that will change everything.

Netflix shared that The Witcher season three will see Geralt (Cavill), Ciri (Allan) and Yennefer (Chalotra) return to Aretuza to protect themselves and learn more about Ciri’s powers. But what they don’t expect is to walk right into the middle of a war with them at the center. The series has done a fantastic job expanding the story past the central characters in the first two seasons. With the addition of this cast, it looks like we will be seeing more of what is happening in the world outside of Aretuza.

Season three of The Witcher doesn’t have a release date yet. But with filming underway, we are sure more news will be coming out over the next few months. Be sure to check back here! What do you think of this casting? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
