It seems like it has been an eternity since “Witches of East End” has been on. The Season 1 finale left fans with plenty of questions, and it looks like several of them will be answered during Season 2. Casting news has been trickling in slowly. According to a May 23 report from International Business Times, Steven Berkoff has been cast to play the leader of Asgard, King Nikolaus. Berkoff is officially labeled as a recurring character for Season 2.
The casting news makes “Witches of East End” fans incredibly excited. Rumors have been floating about the setting being Asgard for Season 2, and this is all but an official confirmation. All of the ladies will be returning to face King Nikolaus. Fans shouldn't expect a happy family reunion at all. Joanna is still going to be recovering from the poison in her blood, so things will be a little on the chaotic side for Freya and Ingrid. With the demise of Penelope, Dash and Killian will regain their powers as warlocks.
Twitter has been buzzing for a little over a month about the “Witches of East End” casting news. Ignacio Serricchio will be joining the show for Season 2 as well.
