He ended his message by wishing the rest of The Witcher cast the best of luck on season two, which he believes will be "absolutely amazing."
Eskel was a witcher of the School of the Wolf taught by Master Vesemir at Kaer Morhen and active in the 13th century.
Though less famous than his peer Geralt of Rivia, Eskel became renowned in his own right as a professional, reliable witcher, and possessing a kind and relaxed disposition needed in his role.
Given him being a somewhat important character, it would make sense if Netflix were to re-cast Thue after his departure.
Earlier this month The Witcher dropped a spin-off miniseries which will reveal the fantasy drama’s biggest mysteries and surprising plot twists.
Following the release of the documentary special Making The Witcher, Netflix have given delighted fans more content based around the fantasy drama series.
Viewers will get the chance to sink their teeth into a whole season of making-of episodes titled The Witcher: A Look Inside the Episodes.
