Netflix and CD Projekt Red Announce Lineup for First WitcherCon
We are just a few days away from the first-ever WitcherCon. Now, Netflix and CD Projekt have joined forces to announce the lineup for the upcoming convention, teasing some of the news fans will hear from The Witcher universe. Julia Hardy is hosting the event, which will feature never-before-seen material from the TV series and video game. Unfortunately, CD Projekt Red doesn’t seem likely to announce any new installments in their epic saga, but there will be plenty of surprises coming the fans’ way.
The event will kick off with a panel called “The Witcher Season 2: Deck of Destiny” and it will focus on the sophomore season of Netflix’s show. The guest list includes Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, Mimî M Khayisa and Paul Bullion. The description reads:
“Destinies collide when the cast and showrunner of Netflix’s The Witcher draw cards from an enigmatic deck of fan questions that will determine the path of the panel and the immediate fate of the guests. But these are no ordinary cards – prepare for surprise reveals, backstage insights, and a dash of chaos as our panelists take us through their journey of filming Season 2.”
The producers have also debuted an image with the full lineup. Check it out here below.
