Dolph Lundgren Joins The Cast Of The Hit Series The Witcher
Actor Dolph Lundgren has revealed that he will feature in the universe of The Witcher by filming a spin-off series in South Africa, likely related to the group of thieves known as the Rats. The Rats will appear for the first time during the third season of the main series, which will split into two parts.

Lundgren has not given any specific details about his role in the new production, but it is speculated that he may play a main antagonist, Leo Bonhart, in the Rats’ spin-off. The Rats series will explore how the group of young criminals decided to lead a life of crime.
In the original novels written by Andrzej Sapkowski, the Rats are a team of young misfits who come together after the war on the mainland upends their lives. One of the Rats, Mistle, has a controversial abusive relationship with Ciri, a central character in the plot, which will add more depth to the story.

The third season is expected to adapt the third book in the novel series, titled Time of Contempt, which will introduce the Wild Hunt as a prominent element of the show. Geralt, Yennefer, played by Anya Chalotra, and Ciri, played by Freya Allan, will continue their journey in magic and combat, as Ciri’s Ancient Blood makes her a target for various factions seeking control of the continent.
In conclusion, fans eagerly anticipate the unfolding of this action-packed mystery story as Dolph Lundgren joins the cast and adds further excitement to The Witcher universe.
