New pictures from The Witcher season 2 have been revealed, giving fans their first glimpse at Sigismund Dijkstra, who is played by Graham McTavish.
The Witcher’s first season debuted on Netflix in 2019 and was well received by fans of the Andrzej Sapkowski books on which it is based as well as newcomers. Henry Cavill, who portrays the stoic hero Geralt, received special praise for his complex and physically challenging portrayal of the iconic character.

The first season was so well-received that Netflix quickly ordered a second season. Several previews for the upcoming season have already been released, hinting at Geralt’s relationship with Ciri (Freya Allan), a mystery surrounding how Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) survived the Battle of Sodden Hill and a number of new characters.
While not every new character has been revealed in the marketing materials, Nivellen (Kristofer Hivju), Coen (Yasen Atour), Vereena (Agnes Bjorn), Vesemir (Kim Bodnia), Francesca (Mecia Simson), and Sigismund Dijkstra (Graham McTavish) have all been confirmed to appear in the new season of The Witcher.
Redanian Intelligence has released a fresh collection of photographs that give fans their first glimpse at McTavish as Sigismund. McTavish, who is best known for roles in Outlander and The Hobbit, looks the part as the Redanian Spymaster in a red jacket and a book-accurate bald head. Also included in the new images are fresh looks at Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri, Jaskier (Joey Batey), and Triss (Anna Shaffer).

The second season of The Witcher appears to be extending the show’s world in exciting new ways, as one of season two’s episode titles, “Redanian Intelligence,” has already hinted.
The Redanian Intelligence is regarded as the most effective intelligence service on the Continent in the source material, with Sigismund, an adept spymaster, at its helm. The presence of Sigismund and the Redanian Intelligence suggests that the following season will dive deep into the Continent’s politics and behind-closed-doors dealings.
