Action legend Dolph Lundgren has joined The Witch universe on Netflix. During an interview for Swedish outlet Aftonbladet, Lundgren revealed he is currently in South Africa filming the spin-off series. The Witchwhich is most likely an upcoming show about Mice, a gang of thieves will make their debut in Season 3 of the main event.
In the Andrzej Sapkowski‘S original The Witch novel, the Mice are a team of mismatched young people who come together after the war that raged across the Continent took their lives. One of the Rats members, Mistle, even had a controversial abusive relationship with Ciri, which is expected to be changed for the Netflix adaptation. The third season of The Witch will adapt Humiliation Timethe third book in Sapkowski’s series of novels, in which Rat is introduced.
As well as being part of Season 3, this criminal gang is also getting its own spin-off prequel series, which follows how these young people decide to take up a life of crime. Since Rat was formed by teenagers and young adults, it’s hard to imagine Lundgren would be part of the group. However, since the story of the Mouse is tied to the ruthless bounty hunter Leo Bonhart, Lundgren could become the main antagonist of the spin-off. If so, Lundgren should jump right into the main series as Bonhart also crosses paths with Ciri many times.
During his interview, Lundgren did not reveal any details about his role The Witch universe. Still, Lundgren has the makings of a gritty warrior who steals the show, from Rocky franchise to Expendable Items. As such, Lundgren would be a perfect fit to play Bonhart. While that’s not the case, we’re very pleased with Lundgren’s arrival The Witch universe, which needs reinforcements since the departure of the main star Henry Cavill has shaken fan faith in the Netflix adaptation.
