Just when you thought Trollhunters couldn't get any cooler, it does. Deadline reports that for the second season of the animated Netflix show, Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), and David Bradley (Game of Thrones, the Harry Potter franchise) will all lend their voices to the Guillermo del Toro-produced series.

In the upcoming season, Star Wars icon Hamill will play yet another older brother — this time, the sibling of a Trollhunting team member. But in a twist, he's on evil Gunmar's side.

Headey, meanwhile, will take on the role of an evil sorceress, while Bradley plays a mystical wizard who may not be what he seems.

The new additions join a cast already brimming with nerdy talent: Kelsey Grammer (X-Men: The Last Stand), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), Anjelica Huston (The Witches, Captain EO), and Jonathan Hyde (The Strain). Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) recorded all of season two before his untimely death in 2016.

There is no air date yet for the second season of Trollhunters, but it's expected to premiere by the end of the year.
